Lemon Dessert

As I looked in my kitchen, I saw a box of Cherrios that had been there for quite some time. I decided to find a recipe using Cherrios. http://www.cheerios.com/recipes/Recipe_detail.aspx?RecipeId=41922&CategoryId=309. 

3cups Cheerios® cereal
1/3cup butter or margarine
1tablespoon sugar
1teaspoon ground cinnamon
2/3cup boiling water
1box (4-serving size) lemon-flavored gelatin
3containers (6 oz each) Yoplait® Original 99% Fat Free lemon burst yogurt

1.Heat oven to 350°F. Finely crush cereal. Stir together cereal, butter, sugar and cinnamon; reserve 2 tablespoons. Press remaining cereal mixture in ungreased 8-inch square baking dish.
2.Bake 9 minutes; cool.
3.Pour boiling water on gelatin in bowl; stir until gelatin is dissolved. Place in bowl of ice and water 2 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until chilled but not set. Stir yogurt into gelatin mixture until blended. Pour over baked layer. Sprinkle with reserved cereal mixture. Refrigerate 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until firm. For bars, cut into 4 rows by 3 rows. Cover and refrigerate any remaining dessert.

The verdict is that it was only ok. It actually tasted like lemon flavored cheerios LOL.
