A box of cereal is just a box of cereal, right? Wrong! It’s a box of magic waiting to adorn your cupcakes, cookies, and birthday treats with unique, clever style.
You can go to the store and buy a bottle full of chocolate sprinkles or rainbow sprinkles. There are sprinkles for Valentine’s day, birthdays, and every other holiday on the calendar. Store bought sprinkles can run you anywhere from three to seven bucks a pop. So, why not use something you’ve already got to decorate your cupcakes? Big G cereals can be transformed into stylish sprinkles in just minutes. Here are a few of our favorite ways to toss them over homemade treats.
HUGS & KISSES
Use the “X” charms from Lucky Charms® and a handful of Cheerios® to give your cupcake hugs and smoochies. A fresh cherry tops the whole cupcake off with romantic charm.
Trix® cereal makes a splendid little bunch of polka dots for cupcakes, cakes, and cookies. Just press them gently into your frosting and decorate away!
Golden Grahams® and mini chocolate chips make for splendid little cupcakes that will have everyone begging for “s’more!”
You know how everyone loves the marshmallows from Lucky Charms? When you use them as sprinkles, everyone’s wishes are sure to come true.
Crush Trix® into rainbow “glitter” and top your cupcakes with a magical mix of color.
Cocoa Puffs® make puffy polka-dots that add crunch and cuteness all in one. Try adding them to chocolate frosting for monochromatic décor, or to vanilla icing for a totally different look.
