How to Make It

Use a double boiler or microwave to heat the white chocolate chips slowly, until melted.

I prefer the microwave method for melting. Heat in 30 second increments, stirring in between. If needed, add a little bit of Crisco or coconut oil. This helps to keep the chocolate from seizing.

Pour the melted chocolate over top of your cereal mixture.

Use a spatula to mix the chocolate around to coat all of the mixture.
