How to Make Cheerios Sheep

Created January 10, 2017
With a few simple ingredients and a bit of creativity, you can turn Multi Grain and Chocolate Cheerios into a flock of friendly, fluffy sheep!

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 box each Chocolate and Multi Grain Cheerios
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows + 6 mini marshmallows
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 24 pretzel sticks, broken in half
  • 12 chocolate-covered almonds (mix of white and dark)
  • ¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Medium heavy-bottomed saucepan 
  • Spatula
  • Wax paper
  • Skewer
  • Toothpick
  • 2 large serving spoons
  • Kitchen scissors

How To: 

1.  Place a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat and melt two tablespoons butter. Add 1 ½ cups mini marshmallows and stir just until melted. Add two cups of Chocolate Cheerios and stir with spatula until cereal is fully coated in marshmallow-butter mixture. Remove pan from heat.


2.  Using a large serving spoon, scoop out one heaping tablespoon of the coated cereal. Using two spoons, press the cereal together firmly into an egg shape. Set aside to cool on a sheet of wax paper; repeat until all the coated cereal is used. Repeat steps 1-3, replacing the Chocolate Cheerios with Multi Grain.


3.  Once your “sheep” have cooled, use a skewer to poke holes where the “legs” go.


4.  Then insert half a broken pretzel stick to finish the legs. (If your hands stick to the sheep as you work, spray them with non-stick cooking spray.)


5.  Next, melt the chocolate chips in a small microwave-safe bowl on high for one minute. Stir, and then heat for 30 more seconds, until fully melted. Using the melted chocolate, affix a chocolate-covered almond to form the head of the sheep.


6.  Dip a toothpick into melted chocolate and quickly dot two “eyes” on the sheep’s face.


7.  To make “ears,” snip a mini marshmallow into small pieces and attach to the sheep’s head using melted chocolate as glue. Repeat steps 3 through 7 until your flock is finished!
