Build a better cereal treat

See also

Cereal treats usually take the form of Rice Krispies treats made with the eponymous cereal, but you can upgrade your treats, using that brand or another type of cereal entirely to create a fun dessert that your kids can help you make and a treat that is the perfect sweet touch for packing into a lunch box. If you make your own cereal treats for your kids, you know exactly what is going into them instead of worrying about unpronounceable preservatives sometimes found in prepared cereal bars.

Because there are only three basic ingredients that go into making cereal treats, you can pick them up at any Houston-area grocery store without concern, but if you want to add some special mix-ins, try visiting Whole Foods, Georgia's Farm to Market or Central Market's bulk bins to get only the amount you need for your recipe to save money.
