I brought this to a family Christmas gathering, and it seemed to be enjoyed, mostly by the kids. I admit I made a change or two: I used orange-flavored dried cranberries and also added a bit of orange essence to the white chocolate drizzle. (Careful with the orange essence! Since its water and alcohol based, more than a couple drops will ruin the texture of your melted chocolate.) I think my problem with this recipe is that it doesn't taste cohesive - it tastes like rice krispies and cranberries and white chocolate. It's missing that element of magic that turns 'ingredients' into a harmonious dish. However, if you're looking to impress some hungry kids, this is a keeper. One note I'll give on preparation: Timing! Because of the rapid cooling of the corn syrup mixture and also the white chocolate drizzle, you have to be quick on the draw. (For example: Spread out the rice krispie mixture the second its thoroughly mixed.) It worked out for me, but I almost had a mucky mess on my hands!
