Ki Tavo Cereal Bowl

What is this? A parsha project for Ki Tavo that gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “a bowl of cereal.”

Right side up, it is a bowl for fruit. Upside down, it is Mt. Eival and Mt. Gerizim

Parsha Ki Tavo:

And it will be, when you come into the land which G-d gives you for an inheritance… that you shall take of the first of all the fruit of the earth. And you shall put [them] into a basket and go to the place which your G-d will choose to have His Name dwell there.

And it will be, when you cross the Jordan, that you shall set up these stones, [regarding] which I command you this day on Mount Ebal, and you shall plaster them with lime.

When you cross the Jordan, the following shall stand upon Mount Gerizim to bless the people: Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Joseph, and Benjamin. And the following shall stand upon Mount Ebal for the curse: Reuben, Gad, Asher, Zebulun, Dan, and Naftali.

The way that you make this is by spreading cereal bar mixture on top of a foil covered bowl. Drizzle over melted chocolate, chill, and then take out the bowl and peel off the foil. Voila! Cereal bowl.

Cereal Bowl Mixture

6 cups of cheerios
1 cup sugar (brown or white)
1 cup corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter
6-12 ounces of chocolate chips, melted with a little coconut oil (or without)

Heat the sugar, syrup and peanut butter until warm and smooth. Mix with the cereal. Spread in a 9×13 pan or over a foil covered bowl. Drizzle with melted chocolate. Chill to get hard if making bowl.

This works with cornflakes, too.

    Oh my goodness–I used to absolutely adore the peanut butter/cheerios variation on Rice Krispy Treats! Haven’t had it in years, though. This is too cute!
