Peanut butter + chocolate = awesome. 

Breakfast cereals are among the finest culinary inventions of all time. Just add milk and you’ve got a tasty and (depending on what you buy) nutritious breakfast. But why just stop at one cereal? Once you start combining and customizing, the possibilities really are endless. So start thinking about which cereals you think would combine better than others. The best part? There’s no wrong answer. Here are five mashups to get you started.

Applejacks, Cinnamon Toast Crunch
Apple mixed with cinnamon is always a winning combination, and these cereals don’t have either flavor in short supply.

Count Chocula, Peanut Butter Crunch
Count Chocula is among the most chocolatey cereals on the market, and the only thing better than mixing it with Cap’n Crunch’s Peanut Butter Crunch is the cereal milk left behind!

Banana Nut Cheerios, Cocoa Puffs
You can find Cheerios in a whole bunch of flavors, and the Banana Nut variety tastes just like banana bread. Add in some Cocoa Puffs and you’ll have a truly devilish mashup.

Reese’s Puffs, Special K Red Berries
Reese’s Puffs already combines two classic flavors: peanut butter and chocolate. Combine them with the whole wheat flakes and ample real red berries in Special K Red Berries and you’ll evoke a peanut butter, jelly, and chocolate spread sandwich.

Cookie Crisp, Kix
Adding Kix to Cookie Crisp raises the crunch factor into the stratosphere, and the subtle sweetness of the Kix adds a mellow counterpart to the super-sweet Cookie Crisp.
