1/2-1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 ounce coarsely crushed pork rinds, or enough to fill the bowl

Pour the cream, water and Splenda in the bottom of a cereal bowl; stir well. Stir in the cinnamon. Don't worry if the cinnamon clumps up a bit. Add the pork rinds and stir until completely moistened. Eat quickly with a spoon before it gets too soggy.

This sounded so strange that I just HAD to try it. Amazingly, it really does have the texture and flavor of soggy Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal. I tweaked Sofresh's recipe a little and give more precise amounts than she did. I increased the sweetener quite a bit, but you can taste the cream mixture before adding the pork rinds to get it the way you like it. I also increased the cinnamon quite a bit, but again, use it to your taste. I made mine with microwave pork rinds which are quite dry and not greasy like the ready-made kind. I don't know how much of a difference the pre-made kind would have. They might also be a little saltier. I weighed out an ounce of pork rinds on my food scale, but you could just pile some into an empty cereal bowl to measure. I then placed them on a big cutting board and chopped them with a knife to about the size of real Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal. If you have the microwave pork rinds, it took nearly about 2/3 of the bag to make one bowl of "cereal". This makes a very unusual snack, but one that I will most likely make again.
