I had no idea that toasted Cheerios were a thing until I met my mother in law. My father in law makes them for her and my husband thought this was a normal snack. Maybe it is! I just never had it growing up. Did you?
General Mills randomly sends me packaged of their new cereals with recipe cards throughout the year, and the other day a box of Cinnamon Cheerios showed up at my door with this Mini Doughnut Hot Buttered Cheerio recipe.
I decided to give them a try and instantly fell in love with them.
