Edible Snack Bowl
Ingredients
  • 8  cups  bite-size rice and/or corn square cereal
  • 1/2  cup  butter
  • 2  tablespoons  Worcestershire sauce
  • 1  teaspoon  seasoned salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon  onion powder
  •  Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2  egg whites
  • 2  tablespoons  water
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Place 8 cups cereal in a roasting pan. In a small saucepan heat and stir butter, Worcestershire sauce, seasoned salt, and onion powder until butter melts. Drizzle butter mixture over cereal mixture; stir gently to coat. Bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. Spread on a large sheet of foil to cool.

2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Coat a 3-quart oven-safe bowl with nonstick cooking spray; set aside. In a large mixing bowl combine egg whites and water; beat on high speed of an electric mixer until soft peaks form (tips curl). Add cereal mixture; stir gently to coat. Transfer cereal mixture to the prepared 3-quart bowl. Using several thicknesses of foil, form a smaller bowl; generously coat the outside of the foil bowl with nonstick cooking spray. Press the foil bowl into the cereal mixture, forcing the mixture up the side of the larger bowl to make a bowl shape. Bake about 30 minutes or until cereal mixture is set. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Carefully remove the foil; cool for 30 minutes more. Using a flexible long metal spatula, carefully loosen side of cereal bowl from oven-safe bowl. Invert onto a wire rack and let cool.
