Prep: 25 Minutes

Green paste food coloring
2 1/2 cups coarsely crushed mini shredded whole wheat cereal biscuits (we tested with vanilla creme-flavored Frosted Mini Wheats)

Microwave vanilla candy coating in a medium bowl at MEDIUM (50% power) 3 minutes, stirring after every minute. Stir in desired amount of food coloring. Add cereal, stirring gently to coat.
