Cereal is a staple food in our house. While cereal is great for breakfast, we've also been known to eat it for dinner on busy evenings and sometimes even for lunch. Now I've decided to take it a step further and enjoy some for dessert using Post cereal!! These cupcakes are really quick to whip up, taste delicious and are especially fun for kids to help bake.

You can adjust the recipe to use different cereals. Post has a variety of cereals that you can make these cupcakes with to make everyone in the family happy. Berry Colossal Crunch is always a hit, and Kung Fu Panda Po Power Crunch is a new product we found at Walmart and were excited to try it after seeing the movie just a few weeks ago!

Start by pouring out some cereal and separating the marshmallows from the cereal. This is the perfect job for the kids to help you with, plus the cereal is fun to snack on at the same time!

Pour the cereal into a plastic bag and crush into fine crumbs with a rolling pin. You'll need 1 cup of cereal crumbs to use in the cupcakes to add some extra chocolatey flavor. Set aside 1/2 cup of marshmallows to use for later.

Mix together all the ingredients to make the cupcake batter. Fill the cupcake liners with batter and bake until a toothpick comes out clean.

Let the cupcakes cool completely on a wire rack. While you're waiting for them to cool, mix up the frosting. If you have extra cereal crumbs, you can add a bit to the frosting for some extra crunch.

Piping frosting is easier than you think! Fill up a piping bag and use the tip of your choice. Hold the tip straight above the the cupcake at a 90ยบ angle and swirl around the cupcake until you get to the center. Release the pressure on the piping bag and pull straight up. It will take some practice, but don't give up!

Add marshmallows and pieces of cereal to the top of the cupcake to decorate it how you'd like. This was my daughter's favorite part and loved getting to help bake these cupcakes!
