Mini Microwave Berry Crisps

As prepared by tbspSusan,

Berries and Cinnamon Chex cereal hook up in a most unexpected place: the microwave!


It read like a produce-section personals ad:

Beautiful berries seek sweet, rich companion. If you've got the right crunch, meet by the micro.


Oh, they met alright. By my microwave oven! It went something like this:

Diced strawberries, whole blackberries and raspberries meet each other. Luuuuuuve at first sight.

They mixed it up a bit in a bowl with some cornstarch and brown sugar.

Then they bopped into the micro to dance 'til they were all hot and bubbly.

While they cooled off a bit, Cinnamon Chex cereal showed up with its butter buddy.

The berries split up into 4 little cups, each with an eye on that Chex.

The butter melted, the Chex crunched up a tad, and they did a samba that made a sensational streusel topping. Luckily, there was enough to go around.

Whipped cream and a dusting of cinnamon made this 15-minute dessert a done deal.

Mmmm! The perfect pairing!

Fresh or Frozen Berries?


Berries are starting to arrive on produce shelves (helllloo spring!), and this recipe works great with fresh berries. But if you live further north like I do, it may still be hit and miss to find good ones.

No worries! Cascadian Farms sells frozen berries that rival the taste of fresh! Look for them in the freezer case at your grocery store. If using frozen berries, thaw them in the microwave on half power and drain completely. I used a combination of fresh and frozen berries in the pictures above.
