I’ve been doing cereal milk ice cream for a while now, but I don’t think any have come out quite as delicious as this flavor!
It even prompted one of my roommates to offer to invest in an ice cream shop that only sold cereal milk varieties.
I think it’s actually a pretty good idea. You could make batches of all your favorite cereal-flavored ice creams, have crushed up cereals as the toppings, and even have some fun confections like the Cheerio Brittle I made for this recipe.
Seriously though, this Honey Nut Cheerio Ice Cream recipe is amazing. It has just the right sweetness, a strong honey flavor, and a beautifully creamy and dense texture. On top of all that, there are no complicated custards to make or eggs to temper. Just mix the ingredients and go!
First mix the milk and cream with the Cheerios and let it sit a while. Then drain out the cereal and mix in the sugar and milk powder.
After letting it fully cool, mix in an ice cream maker. Yum!
I wanted a nice garnish to go with this special ice cream, so I whipped up a Cheerio Brittle.
It looks best if you lay them all out flat.
Pour the candy sugar over the Cheerios nice and slow. This was brought to a “soft crack” temperature of 280, so when it cools it will be like glass.
A sheet of Cheerios!
A light drop and it broke into nice pieces.
Nothing like a cone of Honey Nut on a sunny afternoon!
Best way to cool down on hot summer nights? It’s no contest. Try these refreshing ice cream creations, from cream pies to pops. Quick! It’s dripping!
