My goodness this was good! I reduced the sugar to 1/3 cup and even then it was plenty sweet. You don't however want to reduce the sugar too much or you won't have that syrup which is an important part of the recipe. The rice cereal was cooked in less than 8 minutes pointing out that it was cooked on a low simmer. For my serving I threw a few barberries on top and splashed a liitle bit of rice milk around the edges. Let's just say I didn't want to share any of this because I wanted it all to myself! ;) Reviewed for NA*ME tag.
