Cheerios* Lemon Dessert Recipe
3 cups (750 mL) CHEERIOS* cereal, finely crushed
1/3 cup (75 mL) butter or margarine, melted
1 tbsp (15 mL) sugar
1 tsp (5 mL) cinnamon
2/3 cup (150 mL) boiling water
1 pkg (85 g) lemon flavoured jelly powder
2 cups (500 mL) lemon or vanilla flavoured yogurt
Heat oven to 350°F (180°C). Stir together cereal, butter, sugar and cinnamon. Reserve 2 tbsp (25 mL). Press remaining cereal mixture into ungreased 8 or 9- inch (20 or 22 cm) square baking pan. Bake 9 minutes. Cool.
In medium bowl, pour boiling water on jelly powder and stir until gelatin is dissolved. For fast chilling, place this bowl inside another larger bowl that has ice and water in it and let sit for 2 to 5 minutes or until chilled. Stir yogurt into gelatin mixture until blended. Pour over baked layer.
Sprinkle with reserved cereal mixture. Refrigerate 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until firm. Serve immediately or refrigerate until needed.
