I love playing around in the kitchen. Although I must admit, sometimes things don't turn out exactly how I plan. This cereal, for example, falls in the category of happy accident. I was trying to develop some kind of homemade cocoa puffs. I love the flavor of these, but they do not have the consistency/texture of cocoa puffs. So I'll have to try again on that front. This cereal is more like tiny chocolate nutella cookies. So that's pretty awesome. Pretty unhealthy. But I never said this was a health food post. 🙂Nutella Breakfast Cereal, makes 2 large servings.
1 1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup corn syrup or honey
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons NutellaIn a large bowl combine all the ingredients and stir until a thick and somewhat crumbly dough forms. Lightly cover your hands in flour and pinch off very small pieces of dough. Roll into tiny balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. The smaller the balls the better. 🙂 Bake at 350°F for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and rotate the balls so they don't burn on one side. Bake for an additional 12-15 minutes until crunchy but still a tiny bit soft in the center.Now pour on the milk! If you don't end up eating all of the cereal, then store in an air tight container for 2-3 days. If you wanted to make a larger batch, I bet these could freeze fairly well. If you try that let us know your results. Have fun experimenting! xo. Emma
I tried this out and it ended up hard and not tasting like nutella at all 🙁
YUMMY! That looks scrumptious.
Seriously!? Must make this
Obviously these look beyond AMAZING, but I can’t help but imagine some cookiebutter ones mixed in with these!!!
The nutella craze is so great! Being Italian/Mexican, Nutella was a part of our childhood, but only recently have I been seeing it pop all over the place and the recipes are super creative. Thanks for sharing!
This looks so good! I’m trying to eat healthier though, but chocolate seems to be popping up everywhere I look!
How good does that look?!? And it may not be “healthy” but it has to be healthier than boxed cereal, right? 🙂
I would love to try this!
When you say cocoa – are you using cocoa powder or cocoa for hot chocolate? Making this morning for my kids – before they wake up!! Thanks! It’ll make a great Saturday surprise and make mom cool for 2.5 minutes! hahah
Hello nutella! Great breakfast idea – I never knew you could make your own cereal. Mind blown!
I’ve never, ever, ever thought to make my own cereal! I love this!
And I was on a diet until now.
I absolutely love this idea, Emma! I love Nutella and I can’t wait to try this at home!
This cereal looks wonderfully delicious! My daughter sent me the link to this recipe. Both she and I have Celiac Disease. Every time I bake something I know my young grandsons will love to eat I have to make it gluten-free by default so that my daughter and I can eat it, too. I will make this cereal gluten-free, of course, with a combination of almond flour and some other gluten-free flour (probably sweet rice flour, so that that the dough will have a bit more hold). Your recipe is a super creative use of Nutella!
My boyfriend is a fanatic about both Nutella and chocolately cereal. This is definitely something I’ll be surprising him with. We had a tiff yesterday and I think this is just the thing to help make it up to him, along with a good apology 🙂
Mm they do look fab!

I love so much the idea of making your own cereal. I know that it’s easy to make the healthy oats and grains stuff, but I’ve never considered making the not-so-healthy, incredibly delicious puffed chocolate ones! Thanks for sharing.
I love chocolate. and chocolate makes happy.
These cereals or cookies, whatever, look really delicious!!:)
everything is so simple, but looks so god damn chic and soo delicious. Your photographs are definitely something else:)
P.S.I have my first giveaway on the blog, so i invite everyone to sign up for it.
Wow, I never knew you could make something like that yourself! What a great idea!
