  • 5 cups crispy rice cereal squares

  • Place rice cereal into a large bowl.
  • In a large zip top baggie, combine cake mix and powdered sugar. Seal bag and shake to evenly combine ingredients.
  • In a large glass bowl, combine white chocolate and shortening. Melt according to directions on package. I heated mine in the microwave for 30 seconds then stirred, another 30 seconds and stirred again, then continued heating in 10 second intervals and stirring until completely melted.
  • Pour white chocolate over cereal and mix carefully using a spatula.
  • Empty the coated cereal into the baggie with the cake mix and powdered sugar and shake gently until all cereal is evenly dusted. Top with carrot cake sprinkles if desired.
