Rice krispy treats using other types of cereals, I have seen them made using fruit loops, cheerios and other types of cereals. I guess it depends on what type of sugary cereal you have.

You could soak them in heavy cream and milk, strain out the cereal and make ice cream. Just use the cereal-flavored milk as the base. I'd follow the genius recipe posted for Jeni's ice cream so that the base uses cornstarch and cream cheese to thicken it rather than eggs. http://www.food52.com/recipes...
Just leave out the lemon.

Wow, brilliant all of you. I would have simply headed for the dumpster.

Heat canola oil, or butter, add some spices like paprika, salt, some crushed dried herbs, blend this flavored oil into the cereals (I'm not sure which particular ones you have in the pantry), layer onto a baking sheet & lightly toast till crisp along with store bought planters nuts for a party mix.

How about crushing them and using them as a coating for a Satay type chicken strips. But with without the skewers and grilling.

Chicken strips..soaked in peanut butter/soy/citrus. Coated with cereal crumbs and lightly fried..or just baked.

All of these ideas are wonderful; Sam1148's response is much like what I would do: crush them and use them as a coating for, say, a variation of monkeymom's handy recipe:
