My mom might have said this to me before and I’m pretty sure I believed her. When we were growing up, I can’t remember ever eating store bought Cocoa Krispies. Mom used to make us our own…and it was GOOD! One of my most favorite breakfasts/snacks/afterschool treats EVER. Especially on cold days :) Even though I’m all about the store bought version now that I’m all grown-up, I still CRAVE mom’s homemade style cereal. I seriously think you’ll love it as much as I do if you give it a try :)
HOMEMADE COCOA KRISPIES
Pour your milk into a saucepan & add chocolate syrup. Add as much, or little, of both. There’s no secret to this…the more syrup you add, the more chocolate-y your cereal will be :) Bring to a boil and remove from heat.
While the chocolate milk is cooling off, pour yourself a bowl of Rice Krispies…
Once your milk is cooled off, pour over cereal. I don’t like my milk to get too cool. This is one of those treats I like to eat HOT! Not scalding hot, but you get the picture!
On nights when Mr. Spouse has to work and I don’t have to cook, this is one of my favorite things to make for myself :) It reminds me of being a kid and my mom’s mad skills in the kitchen ;)
