Fall is here.

That means it is time for apple everything. The sweet fruit pairs well with almost everything (have you seen my pork chops??).

Especially desserts. Which is why I could not wait to make this recipe.

Can you believe something so yummy came from a box of cereal??

My favorite way to eat this is to top it with a giant scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. The ice cream melts right into the apples blending the flavors and creating a beautiful blend of flavors.

If you are not a fan of the honey roasted you can try almond or vanilla bunches.

I love how great Post cereals are for creating unique and healthy autumn-inspired recipes.
