Chocolate Cheerios Review and Giveaway...

Thanks to MyBlogSpark I was able to try the new Chocolate Cheerios! I had these for breakfast this morning and really like them! They are better than I thought they would be! My hubby and boys also like them!

If you love chocolate, your taste buds will be delighted with new Chocolate Cheerios-with a perfect balance of whole grain goodness and a delicious touch of
chocolate taste in every bite.

Chocolate Cheerios is low in fat, heart healthy*, has 100 calories per serving, contains at least 8 grams of whole grain per serving (at least 48 grams recommended daily), and is a good source of calcium and vitamin D. Made with real cocoa, Chocolate Cheerios can help your fam
ily start the day off right with a delicious and nutritious breakfast that is sure to make you smile!

In addition, check out these great
recipes using Chocolate Cheerios...

Chocolate Cheerios® Marshmallow Hearts

Crust
1 cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1 cup Chocolate Cheerios® cereal, crushed

2/3 cup light corn syrup

2. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from oven. Immediately sprinkle with marshmallows. Return to oven;
bake an additional 1 to 2 minutes or until marshmallows just begin to puff. Cool while preparing topping.

3. In large saucepan, place all topping ingredients except cereal and sprinkles. Heat over medium-low heat just until chips are melted and mixture is smooth, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in 4 cups cereal. Immediately spoon warm topping over marshmallows; spread to cover. Sprinkle with candy sprinkles. Cool completely, at least 1 hour.

I've seen those. I'm not quite sold that they would actually taste good. It's good to know that they tasted better than you thought they would. Maybe I will try them someday.
