For the past several weeks, I have been constantly hungry between 11-3. I eat breakfast, and then lunch is this on-going affair that usually involves some attempt at a “meal,” mixed with handfuls upon handfuls of whatever is closest.
And then I listened to my beloved Sorta Awesome (I don’t even remember which episode, I’m sorry!), and I believe it was Kelly who mentioned that when she is taking care to eat well, she’s not constantly hungry throughout the day.
I have not been eating particularly well lately. Suggestions for easy, filling, and healthy breakfasts and lunches welcome!
I had already purchased the ingredients to make white chocolate churro crunch before having this epiphany, so I felt a little bit like the person who always says the diet will start tomorrow. What else am I going to do with a box of Honeycomb cereal?
That all worked out kind of great for me, because this snack mix is simply amazing. It involves melted chocolate, so my picture is a bit of a lie. But if this blog had an alternate title it would be, the misadventures of a horrible chocolate melter, so I just ate all my globby-chocolate-blobs and snapped a picture of the rest of the mess.
I could not stop eating this. It’s absolutely addictive, and while I won’t say it’s better than muddy buddy mix, I will say it hits a different sweet spot. There’s room for both o rely sweet cereal concoctions in your life, too, I’m sure.
To make snacks for a little group, you will need:
- 4 cups Honeycomb Cereal
- 4 tablespoons melted butter
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup melted white chocolate
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Toss honeycomb with melted butter in a large bowl. Then add cinnamon and sugar, and toss to coat. Bake for 15 minutes.
When Honeycomb mixture has completely cooled, drizzle with melted chocolate*. Refrigerate or freeze till chocolate is set, then serve.
*I hate working with melted chocolate, because things always come out so much blobbier for me than other, more seasoned food bloggers.
