As promised, here’s the recipe for the breakfast treat that made Liam say “Mom, you the best cooker!” Make it with whatever your kids’ fave cereal is, and if your kids have a peanut allergy, make it with cashew or almond butter.
Grilled Peanut Butter and Cocoa Krispies Cereal Sandwiches
½ cup butter, softened
¾ cup smooth peanut butter
3 Tbsp honey
1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
8 slices white bread
½ cup Cocoa Krispies Cereal (or cereal of your choice)
¼ cup sugar
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
In a frying pan, melt three tablespoons of butter. Make sure the butter does not burn.
In a small bowl, mix together the peanut butter, honey, and cinnamon. Spread the peanut butter mixture on each of the eight slices of bread. Sprinkle the cereal evenly on four of the slices (about two tablespoons of cereal per slice). Top with the remaining four slices.
Spread the remaining butter on both sides of the sandwiches. Grill the sandwiches in a frying pan until each side is golden brown.
For the topping, combine the sugar and cinnamon in a shallow plate. Coat the grilled sandwiches with the mixture. Cut diagonally, serve hot, and dig in!
