Ingredients:

7 cups corn pops cereal
1 10 oz. bag of large marshmallows
6 tbsp. unsalted butter
Ice cream cones (cake cones – with flat bottom)
Cooking spray

Directions:

In a large pot, melt 6 tbsp. of butter over medium high heat then add the 10 oz. bag of marshmallows. Stir until the marshmallows have all melted. Remove pot from heat and add the corn pops cereal. Mix until all the corn pops are covered in the marshmallow mixture. Using your hands, pack the cones with the corn pop treat mixture. It’s a good idea to butter or spray your hands with cooking spray while packing the cones.

Olympic Gold Medal Froot Loop Necklaces

Supplies:

Froot Loops
Gold medals
Yarn, Twine or Ribbon String
Scissors
Tape

Instructions:
Precut yarn, twine, or ribbon in the length of a long necklace. Tie a Froot Loop to one end so that when your child goes to thread the necklace the cereal doesn’t fall off the string and wrap the other end with a small piece of tape so that it’s easier for your child to thread.

Have your child thread the necklace until it is halfway full of Froot Loops and then thread through the gold medal. Continue adding Froot Loops until full and tie together to form a necklace.

Now we’re ready to cheer on our favorites, including Team Kellogg’s listed below!
