Today was one of those days. The kind where you have to peel yourself out of bed and the whole house is a solid twenty minutes of chaos as you shoo everyone out the door. The kind where you finally get all the kids deposited where they need to be and you just want to climb back under your cozy blankets in your nice soft bed, but can’t. But, it’s never to late to start the day off right. Or at least to start the rest of the day off right. It our rushed mornings, my kids don’t have time (and I don’t have patience) for them to sit down and eat a bowl of cereal. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But it can be stress-free and fun too! I made up a batch of Corn Pops Bites and I couldn’t believe how quickly my family devoured them. And Mr. Napping, who doesn’t eat cold cereal if he can help it, but will always stop for a bowl of Corn Pops, wasn’t here to help them disappear even faster.
KELLOGG’S CORN POPS BREAKFAST BITES
Start the day off right with these easy make-ahead, grab and go breakfast bites
Serves: 15 cereal bites
Serving size: 26 g
- 1 cup Kellogg's Corn Pops
- ½ cup instant oats
- ⅔ cup peanut butter
- ½ cup mini marshmallows
- ⅛ cup chocolate chips (optional)
- Pour 1 cup of Corn Pops into a microwave safe bowl.
- Combine the marshmallows and peanut butter in the bowl.
- Microwave for 20-40 seconds, until the marshmallows and peanut butter are melted.
- Stir until well combined.
- Add the oats. I mix in the oats with my hands to help them get evenly distributed though out the mixture.
- Roll the mixture into 1-inch balls and set on a cutting board or wax paper. Or you could shape them into bars if you preferred.
- Repeat previous step until all of the cereal mixture is rolled into balls.
- Place cutting board in refrigerator. Melt chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 30 seconds at a time until chocolate is all melted.
- Get the cereal balls back out of the fridge and drizzle with chocolate. Return to fridge for 10-15 mins until chocolate is set.
- Store in an airtight container for up to 7 days. Refrigerate if your peanut butter requires it.
I’m so glad I picked up some Kellogg’s Corn Pops last time I went to Target. We love to snack on them straight out of the box, but these little treats are so tasty! Be sure to check out Kellogg’s Back to School packaging and great on-pack offers in store at Target! Stock up on Kellogg’s breakfast products from 9/13-9/19 and you’ll receive a $5 Target giftcard when you purchase five select Nutri-grain, Special K, Pop-Tart, and Kellogg’s cereal products. Start the day off right with some protein and a little fiber to help keep your kids focused and fueled for school.
I usually pair a couple of breakfast bites with some yogurt or a sting cheese and apple slices. Things that are easy for my kiddos to eat on rushed mornings. You don’t have to put the chocolate on top if you want something a little more healthy and sugary. But I just couldn’t resist the peanut butter and chocolate combination. I would also suggest using salted peanut butter (most of them already are, but you can get some that is unsalted) because the sweet and salty combination is pretty tasty too!
