Imagine taking your favorite cereal and combining it with marshmallows to create an epic and extremely impressive cone. Yeah, that's exactly what we did.

We crushed up Van's new Blissfully Berry and Cocoa Sensation gluten free cereals and added some butter and marshmallows to 'em, shaping our creation into the ultimate ice cream cone... Made out of cereal. #yasss

We filled one cone with Greek yogurt and fruit so you can take it on the go for breakfast.

We filled the other with ice cream (classic).
