Set aside.In a large bowl pour in 5 cups of Froot Loops cereal, set aside.In a microwave safe bowl place the white chocolate chips (and shortening) and/or almond barkMelt for 1 minute and then stir. Continue to melt in 20 second intervals, stirring after each interval until the chocolate/bark is smooth.

Carefully pour the melted chocolate into the bowl of cereal and fold to combine.Add additional cereal 1/2 cup at a time and fold into the mixture using a rubber scraper (spatula) until the cereal is well coated.
*You may not use all of the cereal. It depends on how well coated you want your cereal clusters.Make sure they are coated enough to stay in a cluster.
Carefully spoon mixture onto prepared baking sheet into tablespoon-sized clusters.Allow to cool completely on counter or in fridge. Once cooled and completely set store in airtight container in a cool dry place.
