Cereal Art - Materials and Equipment

Breakfast cereal is available practically everywhere and in abundance as well. You can already do a lot with what you may find in your kitchen cabinets.

Cornflakes are great for flower petals, rice krispies are too and also make good flower hearts and the colored fruit loops broaden the possibilities and bring diversity to every project.

It is more about the inspiration then about what kind of other materials and equipment this art requires. The main things you will need are solutions keeping your creation together and the best options are melted chocolate, in which you press the cereal, and marshmallows.

You actually use the same recipe and directions for making rice krispie treats, but can replace the krispies by any other type of cereal.

You will need 3 table spoons of butter or margarine, about 10 oz. or 40 marshmallows or 4 cups miniature marshmallows and the cereal of your choice.

Melt the butter in a large saucepan on low heat, add the marshmallows and keep stirring until they are all melted and the mixture is smooth. If you rather use the microwave; heat butter and marshmallows on high for 2 minutes, stir well and heat it again for 1 minute. Stir until smooth.

Remove from heat and add in the cereal. Stir well until all of it is coated. Let it set for a while and then form the desired shapes with your hands.

Raisins and M&M's are great for eyes or other garnishments, but I am sure you will have no problem coming up with lots of other tasty solutions!
