The school year is already in full swing around here, and it seems like we are on-the-go all day long. However, when it comes to unwinding at the end of the day, my husband and I love to play a game or two on the Nintendo Switch. We recently got this gaming system and we absolutely love the versatility of the console & the amazing graphics. Today, I am sharing the recipe for Layered Strawberry Parfaits made with Honey Bunches of Oats® Strawberry cereal. Also, keep reading to learn more about how Nintendo has partnered with Post® Consumer Brands and find out how you could be entered to win 1 of 500 Nintendo Switch consoles!

Start by packing a few tablespoonfuls of the cereal & butter mixture into an oven-safe glass. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes, or until the crust is a firm golden brown. My glasses happen to be oven-safe, but if you don’t have oven-safe glassware, simply use ceramic ramekins or other oven-safe vessels.

After the glasses have cooled, top with some whipped cream, sliced strawberries, strawberry syrup and Honey Bunches of Oats Strawberry cereal.

I actually made a set of three of these babies! I have a friend coming over to play one of my favorite games on the Nintendo Switch. Did you know that Nintendo Switch combines the power of a home console system with the mobility of a handheld? I love that this means I can play the game in the comfort of home on the big screen, but I can also take the game on the go with me!

We have been getting so much enjoyment from our Nintendo Switch. With so many iconic classic games and numerous newer games, you’re sure to find a game you love! Notice the controllers (called Joy-Cons) in the picture below. They make it easy-peasy (and totally fun) to control the characters on the screen!

I, too, am totally immersed in the process of getting our characters to advance to the next level. Can you say marathon gaming session after the kids go to bed?!

One game I’m really looking forward to is Super Mario Odyssey (it’s available on October 27), which is a fun globe-trotting adventure that takes the characters throughout exotic destinations. In this game, the goal is to collect Moons to power up the airship (the Odyssey) and rescue Princess Peach from Bowser (I remember Bowser from previous Mario games). Packed with secrets & surprises, this game is sure to delight players of all ages. Mario’s new friend, Cappy, even lets Mario tackle a wide variety of new moves & techniques! How fun!
