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?

I am the HUGEST CHOPPED fan! I just know we were destined to meet this past week, Grantham!

And I'm all set for the CHOPPED marathon tonight!

But isn't it strange that I'm not all that into my kitchen ...
