The REAL Honey Nut Cheerios

I have always been a fan of Honey Nut Cheerios and never just plain old, boring, bland, tasteless cheerios. Well, looking in my cupboard this morning, deciding what to have for breakfast (the most important meal of the day people!) I see the same two single serving yellow boxes staring at me that have been there for the last three months, and I thought to myself, "I wish they were orange boxes."  BUT THEN, I look directly at the shelf below and see a bag of walnuts from Costco sitting there, and on the shelf above the cheerios is a jar of honey... hmmmmmm.  See where I'm going with this?

I emptied the two yellow boxes (because they're small) into a bowl, crushed up a half cup of walnuts, and then drizzled about two tablespoons of honey on top of that.  Mixed it all up, poured in my milk, and then my first bite of awesomeness!

I am instantly obsessed!  Why I did not think of this very simple (and obvious) recipe before, will haunt me for the rest of my life.  Sure, it's a little more work then just pouring it straight out of the box, but you will reap the rewards with a little extra effort.  Never shall an orange box enter this house again!  Only yellow are welcome now (but must bring its two friends).
