36 Ways To Eat Cereal For Dessert (Without Serving It In A Bowl With Milk)

Nope, none of them come in a bowl with milk.

We all have delightful, nostalgic feelings for our favorite childhood breakfast cereal.

Some of us ate Cheerios with 2 percent milk every day. We were permitted bright, sugary Trix only on weekends. Others were afforded Cinnamon Toast Crunch seven days a week. All of us, most certainly, plucked all of the marshmallows from a bowl of Lucky Charms.

Cereal desserts are one of the most magical ways to eat your way down nostalgia lane -- but it's not all Rice Krispie treats here today. The recipes below sneak cereal into everything from ice cream to cake to brownies. Now that we're adults, we may just eat one of these for breakfast.
