Pink CHEERIOS (or GF Round Cereal!)

This morning I was scouring my cupboards for something to go with PINK SUGAR to send to school with the girls.  I mean, its Valentine’s Day – who doesn’t send their kids to school with pink sugar?  The fastest/easiest is actually candied almonds, but we can’t send nuts to school for obvious reasons.  Then it hit me – Cheerios!!  How brilliant am I  is this?

You’ll need about 2 Tbsp pink sugar (or just put dye & sugar in a bag and squish)

and a cup or so of cheerios – honestly, I didn’t measure!

Heat on High until sugar starts to melt.

It will burn quickly.

So stir like the wind, darling.

Remove from heat.

Put in bags. 


Put in bags.

Imagine these are NOT looking yellow, k?

Final result, minus the melted baggies.

  1. haha!!! LOVE it! MINUS the plastic bag
    Great idea Cathy!! I love reading your posts!

  2. I’ve read elsewhere on this site that Cheerios are not gluten-free because they use mainstream oats.
