Mini Cereal Bowl Cookies & Cupcakes

I have a problem that I love cereal way too much.  There, it feels good to come clean with that.  I wonder if you can be addicted to cereal? And by cereal I mean pretty much all of them.  The junkie and the so called good for you cereals too.  I don't care what kind it is - add some to milk to a bowl of any kind and I'm a happy camper.  The cereal marketers love me because I'm a sucker for any new cereal or retro cereal box.  

There's just something about the crunchy cereal and milk together and then you get that awesome cereal milk at the end.  

And for those of you who dump your cereal milk - we can't be friends.  You are wasting the best part!

If you are similar to me then you'll love these treats.

Mini cereal cookie bowls - filled with all my fav cereals!

Start with some sugar cookie bowls.  

When I made these mini strawberry and grape cookie cups this summer I thought the base looked a lot like a little mini bowl, which then sparked the idea for these little all edible cereal bowls.

They don't even need to be perfect

Fill them with some "milk" aka cream cheese frosting and top with all your favorite cereals.

You can pretend you don't scarf a bowl of your fav junkie cereal standing up in the kitchen but we all know we've been there done that!

Tiny spoons are made from melted candy wafers sprayed with some silver edible color spray.

Cute on their own... 

or add them to cupcakes as a super special treat! 

And seriously who can resist a mini bowl of fruity pebbles??! I know not me.  

(Please let me know that I'm not the only cereal addict out there!)

Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.  Can't wait to see ALL of the Fall and Halloween treats this year!

  1. These are so cute and fun! I'm with you; I always say that I could live on cereal (and milk), or bread, especially Cocoa Krispies!

    1. Ok glad I'm not alone!! I let the kids have the junkie ones as dessert but not as breakfast!

  2. I've never eaten a bowl of cereal with milk, I know, strange, right? But I know I would be able to gobble these up in an instant, super cute!

    1. Never ever had a bowl with milk??! Wow! My boys eat dry cereal all the time and prefer it that way. My daughter is like me, milk required ;) thanks for stopping by!
