Dessert for breakfast? Yes, please!!

With the new Dulce de Leche flavored brand of Cheerios coming out this month it’s an absolute possibility. And I already have some great ideas on how I can plug them into some Weight Watchers Dessert Recipes!

The nutritional stats are pretty decent – each 3/4 cup serving is just 3 Points. Granted, it’s not Dulce de Leche ice cream, but hey, for just 3 Points, it’s a pretty decent substitute. I can already see myself just eating handfuls of them when my late night sweet tooth kicks in.

Sweet and crunchy is a great combination. I’ll definitely be grabbing a box or two of these Dulce de Leche Cheerios as soon as they hit my grocer’s shelves!

    Skinny Cow makes Dulce de Leche Ice Cream in mini buckets.  They are only 4 points for the whole things and sooo rich that I can never eat more than half at a time.
