Mini Doughnut Fried Cheerios


  • 4 cups Cheerios
  • 1/4 cup butter 
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


In a small bowl, mix cinnamon and sugar, set aside.

Using a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat then add vanilla, stir well. Next, add cheerios, coating evenly in butter. Cook for 3 minutes, until cheerios are lightly toasted. Remove from heat and pour the sugar cinnamon mixture evenly over Cheerios, coating evenly. Allow to cool for a few minutes. Enjoy!


These can be served warm or at room temperature. I actually like them best at room temp.
