Summer is here!  Along with the anticipated arrival of summer we celebrate the cheer of the season and my little prince Lucien with the creation of a half birthday dessert featuring Cheerios™

1S9A5451I rolled my eyes at the idea of a 1/2 Birthday.  But the new mom in me said to go for it.  I set the scene of Prince Lucien’s half Birthday kidnic on the Turtle Pond lawn of Central Park.  It set the perfect summer day to enjoy a picnic at le Château de Lucien.  I created a no hassle menu, including a tasty & fun dessert with Cheerios™.  Children easily acquire food allergies.  This was my biggest fear and concern in selecting menu choices.  Instead of a traditional cake, I went for a kid safe dessert experience for Lucien and his royal court.

Realizing that Cheerios are usually the choice of a lot of parents for their children; I prepared a sweet potato pie utilizing Cheerios as a crumble.  Plated on an appetizer spoon, I sprinkled a crumbled mixture of honey nut cheerios™, apple cheerios™ and graham cracker atop the sweet potato.  What a beautiful interpretation of a classic dessert and an everlasting summer memory we created with our family, friends and Cheerios™. #SummerOfCheerios

To achieve this royal dessert you can head to your local Walmart for a wide variety of Cheerios flavors (Cheerios™, Honey Nut Cheerios™, Fruity Cheerios™, Multi-Grain Cheerios™, Frosted Cheerios™, Apple Cinnamon Cheerios™, Chocolate Cheerios™).  I purchased all of the listed ingredients at Walmart and found coupons to save on my shopping here.
