We’re about to make your life a little more colorful! We took some of our favorite cereals from our childhood and put them into our dessert to make Cereal Killer Cheesecake. If you think about how sweet these cereals are, they’re better suited for dessert anyway!
We first saw this idea from Popsugar Food. Then we noticed that they got their inspiration from the Pie Hole’s Cereal Killer Pie. We liked bits and pieces from both of their ideas and so made our own.
First we liked how Popsugar made everything easier. They removed the baking aspect of it. That was cool. They processed their fruity pebbles for the filling, which makes sense since a soggy cereal texture isn’t the most popular. We didn’t process our cereal and to our surprise, it didn’t make much of a difference! I liked the look that the Pie Hole’s pie had, so I mixed in full pieces of fruity pebbles. They get soggy, but that texture blends well with cheesecake. The Nilla wafer crust sounded better than a fruit pebble crust and so we opted for making that, even if that meant turning on the oven.
We turned our pie into 3 individual tarts with this recipe.
