By creating tiny cookies that can be transformed into a cereal. Genius, I know.

Justin Schuble has opened our eyes to the wonderful world of tiny cookies.

Jason is the brains behind the popular Instagram account @dcfoodporn, where he shares an array of mouth-watering recipes, both sweet and savory.

His Instagram is full of deliciousness...

And now, it has only gone and got a whole lot better.

Justin has dabbled with breakfast experimentation in the past...

Not too long ago, he shared his pancake cereal recipe, which involved miniature pancakes which are drizzled with butter, maple syrup, and milk.

The miniature pancakes were a roaring success...

So Justin decided to broaden his cereal horizon.

We present to you...

The chocolate-chip cookie cereal! Though it took him 2 attempts, Jason has now perfected his cookie cereal recipe, and he is ready to share it with the world.

For starters...

Jason used a pack of Nestlé Toll House pre-made chocolate chip cookie dough... Though he stresses that, at home, you can make your own if you'd prefer.

He sliced the cookie-dough into thin lengthwise strips...

And then sliced them crosswise to create small squares.

He then rolled each small square of dough into a ball.

Justin stresses that the cookies need to be cut into even pieces. He wrote: "You want to make sure they bake evenly or else some will burn and others will be undercooked. Instead of rolling them into balls, just round the edges. And add an extra chocolate chip on top for a prettier final product."

The cookies are then neatly transferred onto a baking tray, and put into the oven.

They are baked for approximately 7 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Justin notes how they may be a little bit soft upon removal from the oven, but they will gradually harden once left out to cool.

As for the next part...

It's time to eat! To avoid getting all the cookies soggy at once, Justin recommends adding only a few bites to your bowl at a time.

Once the milk is added, the cookies are transformed into a delicious breakfast treat.

But they can also be enjoyed with ice cream as a dessert.

But it doesn't have to end here.

Justin explained that these cereals are a great opportunity to get creative. He wrote: "You can make any type of cookie into cookie cereal. It doesn’t have to be chocolate chip!"
