  • 4 cups Cinnamon Toast Crunch™ cereal
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 packets unflavored gelatin
  • 1/2 cup very warm water
  • 2 packages (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 container (4 oz) Yoplait® Original Yogurt Vanilla
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 box (2.7 oz) Betty Crocker™ Food Color Gel Neon


  • 1
    Place cereal in a food processor. Pulse until very finely ground, then add melted butter. Pulse until fine crumbs form, then press into the bottom of an 8x8-inch baking pan.
  • 2
    In a small bowl, dissolve gelatin into warm water. Add to a large stand mixer along with cream cheese, yogurt, and sugar. Mix until smooth. Spread half of the cream cheese mixture on top of the cereal crust. Even the layer out with a spatula.
  • 3
    Divide remaining half of the cream cheese mixture into even amounts among 4 small bowls. Tint each with a different color of Betty Crocker neon food coloring. Stir until the color is evenly mixed in each bowl (use your discretion on color amounts, depending on how deep you want the colors).
  • 4
    Place dollops of each color like a checkerboard across the top of the white cream cheese layer. When all of the colored mixture has been spooned on top of the white cream-cheese layer, tap the baking pan several times against a hard surface to flatten the colored layer. Draw a knife across the mixture in several directions to swirl the color.
  • 5
    Refrigerate for 1-2 hours before slicing and serving.
