• 1 (8- to 9-inch) frozen cheesecake, slightly thawed
• 2 cups frozen strawberries
• 1 cup frozen blueberries

1. Cut cheesecake into 1-1/2-inch squares, place on platter, cover, and return to freezer.

2. In a medium saucepan, combine strawberries, blueberries, and 1/4 cup sugar. Cook over medium-high heat 15 minutes, or until fruit breaks down and sauce has thickened, stirring occasionally. Let cool and refrigerate until chilled.

3. Meanwhile, in a shallow dish, combine cereal, remaining sugar, cinnamon, and butter; mix well.
