Fruity Cupcakes--Kid Approved

I tried something a little different after watching an episode of Chopped on the food channel. I love Chopped BTW.

So I had some cereal leftover from the grandsons visit.  Not one I particularly care to eat.

So I found a way to use it . . .

On Chopped they had taken cereal and ground it up. So I thought why not put in my cake batter? I searched for a recipe and found one in my old stand by cookbook . . .
Betty's recipe called for a lemon cake mix and frozen orange juice. 
I had a white cake mix and no orange juice.  So I thought why not use the Fruit Loops cereal that was sitting in my pantry?  
It was a bit of a challenge  pulling out the marshmellows but smashin' up the cereal and adding to the cake batter turned out great!  

I frosted with just a simple butter frosting.  Everyone loved them!

Do you have some cereal that needs to be eatin?  Why not try something a little different with it?
