FoCo Joe: Cap’n Crunch Smores Cereal


I must admit, I am a big fan of Cap’n Crunch.  FoCo’s cereal selection in general truly astounds me; there really aren’t any great cereals missing from its collection.  This week, I knew I wanted to make something s’mores-related.  I’m not sure why I was craving smores so, most likely a symptom of the almost-end-of-summer blues.  Though there are no marshmallows, graham crackers or chocolate bars that I am aware of in FoCo, it is still very much possible to turn the s’more dream into an almost-reality.  I was more than satisfied substituting marshmallow spread (FlufferNutter) for marshmallows, chocolate syrup for chocolate bars, and Cap’n Crunch pieces for graham crackers.  Throw in some Reese’s Pieces for good measure, and boom! A smore’s cereal is born.   Step 1: Head over to the spreads by the toaster and place no more than a palm’s worth of marshmallow spread in a bowl.  Less is more when it comes to this stuff; it is sticky, filling and addicting.  Portion control is critical here.   Step 2: Over by the soft serve machine, drizzle on some chocolate syrup over the marshmallow spread.  Nothing too difficult here, especially since aesthetics are not a concern for this dessert!  It’s that… Read more »
