Cereal clusters with Cheerios

Cheerios is the number one cereal for kids, and it was the first cereal we gave to Bella when she started teething. In fact, I think is a tradition for most parents to give their babies Cheerios on top of being delicious it helps them practice their motor skills at an early age, but the fun doesn’t have to stop in babies.

Today we want to share a recipe and a special treat at our house in honor of El Dia del Niño.These clusters can be a quick afternoon snack or an on the go mess free snack allowing us to enjoy as much time as possible with our niños (kids).


2 tbs of Unsalted Butter
12 ounces (or the whole box) of Cheerios
10 ounces of mini Marshmallows
2 tbs of all natural honey
1 1/2 cups of Dried Cranberries (feel free to use our child’s favorite fruit!)




Can I have one, please?




The best thing about this clusters is that they are super easy to make and delicious.

1. In a large pan place your butter and once melted add the marshmallows. Those also melt fast, so be sure to have everything handy.
With a paddle stir the marshmallows to help them melt completely.
Once the marshmallows are melted add honey and stir until it’s completely mixed with the marshmallows.
Then add the Cheerios and cranberries.
Mix it until all the melty-marshmallow goodness has covered every Cheerio and cranberry.
Allow it to cool for at least 5 minutes, this is very important if you have little hands helping you!
Line a plate or a cookie sheet with wax paper for an easy cleanup and no sticky mess!

And now the fun, and tasting, begins. You can just scoop them up and leave them as clusters or make little Cheerios balls with them. We did both!

That’s it! It took us around 20 minutes from start to finish.

Now, because us adults need some cariño (love) too here is a sauce that will take these clusters over the top.

Adult version:
1 cup of mini Chocolate chips
1 pack of your choice of instant coffee



Melt the chocolate chips. Add instant coffee. Place in a cute serving dish and dip your heart out! The coffee brings out the chocolate, which brings out the yummy nutty taste in the cereal!

How do you eat your Cheerios?
