      I'm so glad I came across this recipe! I made it as a snack for my son's birthday party and the kids really enjoyed it. I plan on making it again soon!

      Very tasty, but I had a bit of difficulty with the white chocolate part. I had put some white chocolate chips in my double boiler to melt while I was making the sugar/butter mixture. Once the sugar/butter mixture had reached temperature, the chocolate hadn't fully melted yet. I added the sugar/butter to the cereal, mixed it in, checked the white chocolate and found that the chips had turned into more of a dough than a liquid (maybe I seized the chocolate?). I discarded the "dough" and moved on to melting some flaked white chocolate from a bar of Callebaut that I had around. The Callebaut melted much better, but by the time it was ready, the cereal mixture had hardened up quite a bit. For better coverage with the white chocolate, I transferred the cereal to a large baking sheet and broke up some of the bigger chunks of cereal before drizzling the white chocolate and adding the sprinkles. By the time I finished mixing everything, it was looking pretty scraggly, but the flavor was lovely. Oh, and I used half vanilla extract and half lemon extract for the flavoring, which made it taste vaguely like Froot Loops. I'd like to try this again using KAF's princess cake flavoring -- maybe it would make this taste more like birthday cake. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2012
