I need recipes with Wheaties!

I accidentally bought 2 boxes of Wheaties instead of Frosted Flakes for my hubby. Ooops. Anyone have any recipes they like with Wheaties. I know you can use it in place of bread crumbs. I'm having a birthday party in a week, so recipes that would work for snacks would be awesome! I know I could look at the company website, but I wanted to hear from real people.
