Glazed Shredded Wheat

Hey everyone, I'm back to work and back to the blog :)

I accidentally bought non-frosted, plain shredded wheat a couple of weeks ago, much to my unpleasant surprise when I went to eat it. I was going to give it away but I thought, perhaps I can get a glaze on there myself and it'll be like frosted shredded wheat, or sweetened at least!
I took the idea from the cracker toffee that I love so much, but I didn't want it so sweet, so I cut down on that. Let me show you!

All of your ingredients! Cereal, butter, sugar- how much easier can you get?
Heat up that butter and sugar for a few minutes in the microwave or on the stovetop- and keep an eye on it!
Then spoon the butter/sugar over the cereal.
Then bake for 12-14 minutes! This is how it should come out looking, or somewhere about here.

 Glazed Shredded Wheat
-6 cups cereal, single layer on greased baking sheet(s)
-1/2 cup butter (you can use less butter if you'd like, perhaps 6 tablespoons)
-1/2 cup white sugar
Microwave butter and sugar together for 3-4 minutes. Stir well and spoon over cereal.
Bake at 350 F for 12-14 minutes.
Let cool, store in an airtight container or bag.
(Keep in the fridge if you have it for a while- no preservatives for that glaze, remember?)

Store in an airtight container and eat like, well, cereal! Enjoy!

Savor it!
love, rue
