How to Make It
Melt 1/4 cup butter in a large Dutch oven over medium-low heat. Add marshmallows, stirring until melted. Remove from heat. Stir in 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract. Add orange cake mix, blending well. Stir in cereal and white chocolate morsels until well coated. Spread mixture into a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch pan. Cool completely (about 30 minutes). Meanwhile, stir together powdered sugar, 6 Tbsp. softened butter, orange juice, 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract, orange extract, and desired amount of peach food coloring gel. Spread over cereal mixture. Let stand 1 hour before cutting.
I liked the idea of this recipe, so I followed the directions exactly. I am sorry to say that it was horrible. It was so bad that the kids at the party didn't even like it. The fellows each tried a bite, and while trying to be polite, the laughed and said it was the worst dessert they ever tasted.
This was a huge hit at my potluck dinner tonight! My kids enjoyed making this with me and we already had a lot of the ingredients in our pantry. We will make this again soon! I didn't tint the frosting.
