  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup Cocoa Puffs™ Cereal
  • 1 cup Reese's Puffs® cereal
  • 1 cup Cinnamon Toast Crunch™ cereal
  • 1 cup Golden Grahams™ cereal
  • 2 cups whipped cream
  • 1 handful marshmallows
  • 1 handful extra cereal for garnish
  • 1 large batch hot chocolate


  • 1
    Place each flavor of cereal into a SEPARATE plastic bag and seal. Using a rolling pin, roll across the bag, crushing the cereal. When all of the cereal is crushed, pour onto a clean plate. Do this with all four cereals (or however many you are making).
  • 2
    Place 1 cup chocolate chips on a microwave-safe plate and heat in 30 second increments until melted (the chips will still look like they hold shape, but once you touch them they lose shape). Do the same with the white chocolate chips.
  • 3
    Dip your cocoa cup rim side down and spin the rim of the cup into the chocolate.
  • 4
    Then immediately dip your chocolate-covered rim into the cereal plate. In the same way you spun the cup around the chocolate, do the same for the cereal. You many need to help with your hands and push some cereal up onto the sides.
  • 5
    Let the chocolate and cereal set up. You may need to put in the refrigerator to speed up the process.
  • 6
    Flavor combinations to try: Chocolate plus Reese's Puffs®= Peanut Butter Cup. White Chocolate plus Cinnamon Toast Crunch™ = Cinnamon Roll. White Chocolate plus Cocoa Puffs™= Cookies and Cream.
  • 7
    Fill with hot chocolate when you are ready. (Hot chocolate can be made ahead of time). Top with whipped cream and toppings of your liking.

More About This Recipe

  • While almost everyone loves cereal, most people probably wouldn’t think to pair it with hot chocolate. But it makes perfect sense and helps make a yummy flavor explosion in your mouth. At your next party, why not create a Cereal Hot Chocolate Bar? The combos are endless if you really start to think about it. I went with Reese’s Puffs, Cocoa Puffs, Golden Grahams, and Cinnamon Toast Crunch to make my cocoa cereal bar. Don’t forget to have whipped cream and marshmallows on hand as well! Here are the varieties that I used: Cookies and Cream: White Chocolate plus Cocoa Puffs… I added some crushed up cookies as well. Cinnamon Roll: White Chocolate plus Cinnamon Toast Crunch S'mores: Chocolate plus Golden Grahams… just add some marshmallows on top. Peanut Butter Cup: Chocolate plus Reese's Puffs… add peanut butter cups on top of whipped cream Cereal…it’s not just for breakfast anymore!
