Happy Chinese New Year!

Celebrating the Year of the Rooster With a Playful Twist on Cereal and Milk!

Pretty cute huh?! I want one now!

So how am I celebrating Chinese New Year with cereal milk ice cream? Well good question, but wait until you see this!

*Gasp!* Not quite the box you grew up with huh? Don’t worry, the original box is still there and the recipe hasn’t changed, but for a limited time Kellogg’s Corn Flakes is introducing their special Year of the Rooster box to celebrate Chinese New Year. It’s a playful way to play with the Corn Flakes logo, and although they’re crisp and enjoyable on their own simply with a bowl of milk, I also decided to have fun with the cereal. It’s a new year, new box, so why not try a new recipe?

Cereal milk ice cream is made “famous” by Christina Tosi at Momofuku Milk Bar in New York. I’ve had it numerous times especially since many places replicate it now, but hers is arguably the original.
