Last weekend when I headed to Walmart to do my grocery shopping I headed straight to the cereal aisle and instantly saw the SING National Sweepstakes on select Post cereal boxes. Have you seen the previews for SING yet? Oh.My.Gosh!! A movie that will have our whole family singing and dancing in the theater, I cannot wait to see it in the theater. I may be more excited for it than the kids.
So, when I saw that some of our favorite cereals had this SING sweepstakes I knew I had to pick up some extra boxes. The SING sweepstakes gives you a chance at SING movie tickets OR $100,000!! WHAT!!?!? And the best part? It is a sweepstakes that is super easy to enter - simply Enter codes that are printed inside the box into the sweepstakes website.
After unloading my groceries I noticed that I may have bought more cereal than we really needed so my creative recipe brain got to thinking. What sounds amazing on a cold winter weekend (like super cold - Colorado had a deep freeze)? Warm apple pie...yes please.
I am not a fan of making pie crust so I decided to think outside the pie pan. Instead I went for some Baked Caramel Crumble Apples made with a non-traditional crumble. The crumble included Grape Nuts from Post. Made the house smell absolutely amazing and these apples were to die for. So perfect for this time of the year.

For the Apples:
4 medium apples (any kind)
3/4 cup caramel baking bites
1 tsp cinnamon
For the Topping:
1/4 cup Grape Nuts cereal
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet by placing a layer of foil on it.
2. Make apples into a little bowl. Slice the tops off of the apple, do not remove too much apple, just make the apple flat on top.
4. Prepare the Grape Nuts crumble by combining grape nuts cereal, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and butter into a small mixing bowl.
6. Using the caramel bites, divide them up and place into the apples, top caramel bites with cinnamon.
9. Serve and enjoy nice and warm!
I have always loved Grape Nuts but honestly never thought of them as anything but cereal. For this crumble recipe I replaced my normal rolled oats with the Grape Nuts, honestly, this might be my best crumble I have ever made. The Grape Nuts add some extra flavor and lots of crunch, even after being baked.
You can find these specialty marked Post Cereal boxes at your local Walmart. Make sure you enter the SING National Sweepstakes once you purchase your cereal too.
Once again, I am reminded that cereal is not just for morning breakfast, cereal gives me opportunity to get creative with recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and dessert! Check out your pantry and see what creative dishes you can think up. Cereal Anytime!
