How To Make Ice Cream Cones Out Of Cereal And Marshmallows, And Win At Life

Summer may be over, but if you think that means it is time to put away all ice cream cones, you are terribly mistaken. Spoon University has devised a brilliant recipe for ice cream cones made from cereal and marshmallows that are way better than anything you will pick up from the store. Not only that, but these aren't just a dessert-only treat. Fill these homemade cones with Greek yogurt and fresh fruit, and you have a decently healthy and delicious breakfast on your hands, too. You do not need many materials — just some cereal, marshmallows, butter, and of course your filling of choice. Then, it's go time. Just because the warm weather is leaving us, doesn't mean our ice cream has to go with it.

Imagine taking your favorite cereal, and combining it with marshmallows to create an epic and extremely impressive cone. Yeah, that’s exactly what we did.

We crushed up Van’s new Blissfully Berry and Cocoa Sensation gluten-free cereals, and added some butter and marshmallows to ’em, shaping our creation into the ultimate ice cream cone… Made out of cereal. #yasss
