If you only eat Cap'n Crunch in a milk-filled bowl, you're not using it to its full potential.

If you're up for some outside-the-cereal-box experimentation, these Cap'n Crunch Truffles are easy to make, and are more satisfying than sailing the seven seas (that's what Cap'n Crunch does, right? Either way, he's still not really a cap'n).

Inspired by the Domestic Rebel, we threw down these balls with nothing more than some Cap'n Crunch (or Sprinkled Donut Crunch if you're feelin' feisty), cream cheese frosting, powdered milk, and melted white chocolate.

After blending up 3 cups of cereal, you add 1 tablespoon of powdered milk, 1/2 a tablespoon of salt, and 12 ounces of the cream cheese frosting.

After mixing all the ingredients together, roll your mix into ping pong-sized balls, set them on a baking pan, and refrigerate them for about 2 hours.

While the balls are chilling in the fridge, start making the white chocolate coat.

We used a bag of white chocolate chips and just microwaved them until they melted.

Once your balls are cool, you dip them in the melted chocolate and refrigerate for an Rother 20 minutes until the chocolate hardens.

Take them out of the fridge and enjoy these little dessert bombs.

If you're more of a visual learner and would enjoy listening to a happy-go-lucky orchestra play while cereal gets blended into a hypnotizing vortex, check out the video below:
