  • Mixing Bowl
  • small bowl
  • 8x8-inch baking pan
  • Non-stick Cooking Spray


  • 1⅓ cups flour
  • 1 cup Rice Krispies Cereal coarsely crushed
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup butter flavored shortening
  • ½ cup milk
  • teaspoons cinnamon
  • cup sugar
  • cup butter melted


  • In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, crushed cereal, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • Then cut in the shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Stir in milk just until moistened. (The mixture is kind of dry, but if it's way too dry add an extra 1 teaspoon of milk so it's all barely moistened.)
  • Shape into 1 inch balls.
  • In a small bowl combine the cinnamon and 2/3 cup sugar.
  • Dip each ball into butter, then roll into cinnamon/sugar mixture.
  • Arrange in a single layer in an 8 x 8 baking dish that has been lightly sprayed with non stick cooking spray.
  • Bake at 420 degrees for 15 to 17 minutes.
  • Makes 2 dozen breakfast bites.
