Springtime Bunny Bites (Jello-Chex Mix)

This is a mixture between Muddy Buddies and Jello popcorn. There are endless flavors and combination possibilities. I can't wait to try them all. For this picture, I made combined pineapple, berry blue, and tropical fusion flavored Jello. The pineapple was the best!

Springtime Bunny Bites
6 cups rice chex cereal 
1/2 cup light corn syrup 
3 tbsp sugar 
1/4 cup white chocolate chips 
2 tbsp butter 
1/4 cup packaged jello, any flavor or flavor combinations* 
3/4 cup powdered sugar
Powdered food coloring, if desired (I didn't use this)

      In a small Ziploc bag, mix together powdered sugar and a small amount of food coloring.
      Until desired shade is reached. Set aside.
In a large bowl place cereal. Set aside.

In a medium sized sauce pan, stir together syrup and sugar. Cooking over medium heat, stir in butter and chocolate. Stir until smooth and melted. When it begins to simmer around the edges, remove from heat, and add powdered jello and stir until it is dissolved.

Pour over cereal and stir to coat well.

Spoon mixture into a large Ziploc bag. Add powdered sugar mixture. Seal and shake to evenly coat. When well coated, spread evenly on parchment covered baking sheet to cool.

Keep in an airtight container.

Flavor combination suggestions, Substitute 2 tbsp of each flavor for the 1/4 cup amount of Jello in the recipe.

Orange Apricot
Lime-Berry Blue
Pineapple-Tropical Fusion

Makes 6 cups
