Ingredients

  • 4 cups Banana Nut Cheerios cereal
  • 4 cups plain popped popcorn
  • 1 cup banana chips
  • 1 12- ounce bag white chocolate chips 1/2 cup reserved
  • 1/2 cup creamy almond butter
  • 2 Tablespoons sliced almonds

Instructions

  • Line a large baking sheet with wax paper or a silicone baking sheet.
  • In a large bowl, combine the Banana Nut Cheerios, popcorn, and banana chips.
  • Set aside 1/2 cup of the white chocolate chips, and place the rest in a small bowl with the almond butter. Set the bowl over a pot of simmering water and stir until melted and smooth (see Note).
  • Pour the white chocolate and almond butter mixture over the cereal mixture, and toss with a spatula until evenly coated.
  • Spread the coated cereal mixture on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer and allow to cool slightly.
  • While it is cooling, melt the remaining 1/2 cup white chocolate chips in a bowl over a simmering pot of water or in the microwave (see Note), then drizzle over the cereal mixture on the sheet. You can transfer the chocolate to a plastic bag and cut off the very tip to make it easier to do a thin drizzle.
  • Sprinkle the sliced almonds over the top, tapping down the pan or pressing them in as needed so they stick to the chocolate.
  • Allow to cool and harden for several hours at room temperature before breaking into pieces and storing in an airtight container.

Notes

You can also melt the white chocolate in the microwave at 50% power, stirring every 15-30 seconds until melted, but it does tend to be more smooth when melted on the stove.
