Recipe by Lord Bezoar

This is an adaptation of an Alton Brown recipe. I don't recall which episode it was, but I must say that these have become one of our favorites. We will often serve these with the Mac-Daddy Mac and Cheese recipe We have found that you can fine tune the sweetness of the breading by altering the Captain Crunch to Rice Krispies ratio. Have fun with this and Enjoy!
