Loved this! I bet this would be great with some dried strawberry pieces mixed in, too. Other flavors of Jello in the coating would probably be good, too, like lemon or lime. My white chocolate/butter mixture was more of a paste than a liquid, so I had some trouble coating everything evenly without breaking up the delicate cereal, but the broken pieces tasted just as good as the whole ones. Because the broken stuff wasn't holding as much coating as the whole squares, I just sieved the mix from the bottom of the bowl to remove the excess sugar mixture. Even DH enjoyed this, which is surprising because he's not a sweets eater, and this is pretty sweet. Very nice snack, thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 09

I make Puppy Chow (Muddy Buddies) often so I was excited to see this strawberry version! A little handful really satisfies me when I "need" something sweet. My Hershey's white choc. chips melted smoothly but then got a bit grainy and didn't thoroughly coat the cereal, but when I coated with the "powdery pink sugar" you couldn't tell a bit! My daughter loved it in her lunch today. Thanks so much, Nonnie4Two, for posting! Roxygirl
