DIY Dinosaur Eggs Oatmeal
If you ate breakfast in the '90s, odds are you remember this stuff. Dinosaur eggs oatmeal was probably one of the few ways to get kids to eat lumpy grey porridge (whether it was healthy is a whole other thing). If you made the meal yourself, assembling a bowl of dinosaur eggs oatmeal may have been your first experience with mindful cooking. You’d rip open the instant oatmeal packet and sprinkle the oats and pale white candy eggs into a cereal bowl. You’d stare at the kettle as you waited for the water to boil. You'd add a glug of water into the oats and then patience. Suddenly, a brightly colored dinosaur would emerge from one of the eggs. Then another. Soon, you were shoveling those dinosaurs into your mouth, happy as a clam.Dinosaur eggs oatmeal is harder to find these days, so why not make your own? Melt white chocolate until smooth, then dollop it into a piping bag (a plastic baggie with a snipped corner works in a pinch.) Pipe small white chocolate eggs, then dot each with a dinosaur sprinkle. Cover the dinosaurs with more chocolate, then freeze until firm. Shake hardened eggs in a bag with powdered sugar, then pour them into a creamy brown sugar and cinnamon-kissed oatmeal. As you stir the warm oats, keep an eye out for hatching dinosaurs. DIY Dinosaur Eggs OatmealKitchen gear kindly provided by our partners at Jet.com.
