Fun Gummy Worm Cereal Treats you can make with your kids.
I love baking with children. They are so inquisitive, have boundless energy and it gives me a chance to share my passion with them. I first started with my oldest grandson, Nathan. We would make pancakes together when he came for a sleepover. Then that graduated to other recipes. He's 20 now, and I'm hopeful he still knows how to make pancakes!
These Gummy Worm Cereal Treats are so easy and fun to make. You don't even have to turn the stove on! Just microwave everything and mix it up. The fun part happens when it's time to mix things up, add some chocolate or sugary candies, like gummy worms!
You can keep all of the ingredients for gummy worm cereal treats on hand in your pantry, for when that day arrives.
You know that day? When the kids (or grandkids) are laying around, and the dreaded comment "I'm bored" is spoken every 5 minutes?
Now I know you might be thinking, "I don't have time for this." But if I could gently suggest that you take the time - it really is only a few minutes, the memories you will help to create will last forever. I still remember the first gingerbread house I made with my daughter Kris. She decorated it with pink and purple candies! She was so proud and to this day, makes gingerbread houses with her two younger children every year.
Making the cereal treats will probably need some assistance from Mom or Dad, Grandma or Grandpa - but then I usually just let the kids go when it comes to decorating. On this recipe, I smooth a package of melted chocolate chips on top. You know, you really can never have too much chocolate. LOL. If Gummy Worms aren't a favorite, then by all means, add other special treats - the possibilities are endless.
Take some pictures and share too. I would love to see the marvelous creations that result!
