This post is brought to you in partnership with Honeycomb cereal.
Did you know that Post Honeycomb cereal is turning 50 this year! Here at Mommy’s Fabulous Finds we’re excited to join the celebration by making a well known party favorite, Monkey Munch. I have been to a few birthday parties in the past where Monkey Munch was served, and in anticipation of our 4th of July party, we decided to add a little red, white, and blue to our Monkey Munch.
Since 1965, Honeycomb’s one-of-a-kind playful shape and sweet honey taste have made the cereal a breakfast classic that is not only great in the bowl, but also a flavorful addition to treats.
Honeycomb cereal is perfect for baking as well as craft projects. In addition to Monkey Munch, we also strung the Honeycomb cereal on a piece of yarn and made cereal necklaces, and we dipped pieces in colored paint and used glue for a colorful art project.
