Yesterday, I shared how to make homemade honey nut Cheerios.  I explained that you wouldn’t be making the Cheerios from scratch.  Rather, you’d be using store-bought plain Cheerios and then sweetening them to your taste with honey and nut flavor.  Today, I apply the same method to create homemade frosted Cheerios.  You can make homemade frosted Cheerios (or homemade frosted flakes) by starting with the sugar-free version and adding your own frosted coating.  The advantage of adding your own frosting is that you can control exactly what goes into the frosted Cheerios and how sweet you make them.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups plain Cheerios
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon corn syrup I used homemade corn syrup. You could also use honey, agave, or any other thick, syrupy sweetener.

Instructions

  • Put all ingredients in a pot and heat on medium for about three minutes, stirring to coat all of the Cheerios. The heat causes the corn syrup to liquify, which helps the powdered sugar stick to the Cheerios.
