  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup honey or brown rice syrup
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 5 cups Dulce de Leche Cheerios™ cereal
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Yoplait® French vanilla yogurt


  • 1
    In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the honey and peanut butter. Stir until well mixed. Toss in the cheerioes and mix until coated.
  • 2
    Press the Cheerio™ mixture into a muffin tin sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Press each cup of Cheerioes™ down firmly, so they are well-packed together, then allow them to cool completely, about 15 minutes. (You can place them in the fridge to speed up this process, if needed!)
  • 3
    Remove the cereal cups from the muffin tin once cool. Place on a piece of parchment or plastic wrap.
  • 4
    In a small, microwave-safe bowl, melt the white chocolate chips and yogurt JUST until melted. Stir together until smooth. Spoon mixture into a Ziploc bag. Snip a small corner off of the bag and drizzle the white chocolate-yogurt mixture over each cereal cup.
  • 5
    Store cereal cups in cupcake wrappers, if desired. Serve for breakfast, afterschool snacks, and fun midnight treats!
