Magic Milk Bowl

Magic Milk Bowl

Everyone at the breakfast table will do a double take when they witness this deliciously deceptive ruse. Concocted by reader Linda Ann Daffron of Ramsey, New Jersey, the trick makes milk change color when it's poured on top of cereal.


  • Liquid food coloring
  • Dry cereal
  • Milk


  1. To set up the trick, squeeze several drops of liquid food coloring over the bottom of a bowl, then pour in dry cereal to conceal the droplets. When a family member sits down to his cereal and adds some milk, he'll think he's entered a Technicolor twilight zone.
