Kix Crunchy Alphabet Breadsticks
These Kix-coated breadstick letters are easy to make for a fun snack. Or, have an alphabet lesson over soup for dinner. The crushed Kix adds just the right touch of crunchy goodness.
And you don’t have to stick (forgive the pun) with letters. Make any simple shape you like, such as circles, triangles, squares, spirals or zig zags.
To make Alphabet Breadstick Letters:
You will need:
1 cup Kix cereal
1 can (11 oz) Pillsbury refrigerated breadsticks
1 tablespoon butter, melted
Heat oven to 375° F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and set aside. In a zip top bag, place the Kix cereal. Crush the cereal with a mallet or hammer. (Be sure to place a towel or cutting board under the bag to protect the surface beneath.) Pour the crushed cereal into a bowl and set aside.
Separate the dough into 12 pieces. With your palms, roll a breadstick back and forth on the counter to form a log between 10 and 12 inches long. Shape the log into a letter. You may have to cut a few pieces and rearrange for some letters. If so, gently press the pieces together where they meet.
Place the letters on the prepared baking tray. Brush each letter with melted butter and sprinkle generously with crushed Kix. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until golden brown.
