No-Bake Churro Squares made with Cereal con Cariño


Nothing is better than being with family and seeing our kids laugh and play together! Ever since we moved to Texas that is one part that I miss the most, but I love when I get together with mi amiga Christa that lives here because it’s just like being “home”. Christa and I were neighbors as kids growing up in Detroit, Mi, I actually remember when she was born, so it’s pretty amazing that here we are 20+ years later with our kids playing together in the beautiful Texas sun! But that’s what family and the Dia del Niño tradition is all about… seeing our kids grow and enjoy all the wonderful things in life!

Dia del Niño is a tradition that we as Latinos share in celebration of our children growing, learning and loving one another! I love how no matter the age difference Mariya and Christian can play together for hours just by enjoying each others company and snacking on their favorite cereal Honey Nut Cheerios!  It’s so funny because their age difference is just about the same as myself and Christa, and we use to play outside and make the best of our days just like this!

One thing that these two love to do is read their bilingual learning books from Lil’ Libros while snacking on Honey Nut Cheerios Cereal con Cariño! I really love how General Mills celebrates all the ways people come together by sharing their stories of cariño in the video series that includes two amazing influencers Anjelica and Juan from Juan of Words!

    It’s so wonderful that you have a childhood friend living close to you know so your kids can play together. I’d love to have that one day if I have kids. Those churro squares sound delicious and super easy to make.

  2. This looks delicious! Cinnamon toast Crunch was definitely my favorite cereal as a child. I could see how it’d be a good base for a churro square!

    I have always enjoyed the richness of the Latino culture. This post gives me one more reason why. I love the concept of Dia del Niños. And these no-bake squares sound awesome.

  4. I HAVE to try this! I love churros but they’re so hard to make at home!

  5. Krista Bel says:

    This looks like such a treat! And must be quite interesting to make too.

  6. What a fab reunion! I live in Arizona, and my childhood friend lives here too, now, so I totally get it! Love these little treats you’ve made and can’t wait to try them!

    We love General Mills as well. We have to keep Honey Nut Cheerios stocked at our house. Love this creative snack idea.

  8. I have never tasted a churro square let alone made one. What a treat. I think my little one would enjoy this. This could be a fun treat to make and eat.
