Chocolate Cereal Bites

I love whipping up quick treats that are definitely going to be a crowd-pleaser, and these Chocolate Cereal Bites for sure fit the bill. They make such a good snack, they're the perfect sweet little pick-me-up, and who doesn't love cereal?! It's totally a nostalgic take on something that's a childhood favorite for a lot of people, and I got to play with my own love for cereal, so I couldn't be happier. On top of all that, these little bites are the perfect mix of sweet and salty, making them even more satisfying and absolutely delicious.

To throw these Chocolate Cereal Bites together, I used some of my favorite trusty products from Inspired Organics: their Honey Toasted O's, Almond Butter, Creamy Peanut Butter, and Honey. The Honey Toasted O's are Inspired Organics take on a truly classic cereal and they are delish! I also love to use the nut butters from Inspired Organics, because they're so simple -- the only ingredient is dry roasted nuts! -- but they're so good, and the texture is always on point. And finally, my fave organic wildflower honey! If you want to see where you can pick up these Inspired Organics products and more, check out their store locator

Here's what you need for these Chocolate Cereal Bites:

NOTE: I used a mini muffin tin for this one and filled 12 spots. If you want to make them large, double the recipe and use a classic size muffin tin!
