Cereal Chevdo

Cereal Chevdo, a recipe that instantly transports me to my childhood. A mixture of all the leftover cereal turned into a sweet, salt, spicy, and delicious snack/ breakfast growing up. My mom still makes this for me and brings it whenever she visits! If you have never had cereal chevdo, you are in for a treat!!! also its lowkey addicting, you just won’t be able to stop eating it!

I use lots of sweet cereals in here, I love the combo of sweet, salty, and spicy together. I can’t explain what is does to my taste buds, but I do a happy dance after each bite. If you also grew up eating this, the cereal chevdo recipe will take you down memory lane. Super easy & quick to make. Store it in an airtight container and it will stay fresh for weeks, although don’t think it will be devoured so quickly!! If you make this recipe don’t forget to tag me @zheelicious.
