Ready In:


  • 10 ounces white almond bark (can also use white chocolate)

  • 5 cups Chex cereal (any variety)
  • 1 12 cups cake mix (funfetti or preferred flavor)

  1. Pretty tasty! I did back off the powdered sugar a bit. We added edible glitter and called it Bunny Bait!
  2. This was good, but a little to sweet for my liking. If I make this again I would cut the funfetti cake mix down to 1 cup and leave out the powdered sugar altogether. The kids did enjoy this as there afternoon snack, but could only eat about 2 bites because of how sweet it was. I made this for Spring 2013 PAC.
  3. This was VERY well received at our Thanksgiving party! FYI - This recipe can be doubled to use up all the cereal and most of the cake mix. I didn't double the powdered sugar and it was still sweet enough. Thanks for posting!
  4. I only made a half batch of this as was not sure how I'd like it and must say I'm glad I did as it's addicting, I found myself continuously going back for just one more bite. Other than making a half batch. It is sweet, but you only eat a small piece at a time. I also used the white melting discs but was surprised when I went to use them to find they were Marshmallow flavored. I had no choice but to use them anyways as it's all I had - but that turned out to be a great mistake also as the flavor was great in this. I can't wait to make this for my grandkids but when I do it'll be the full recipes. Made for Spring PAC 2014
