Combine first 4 ingredients in a heavy saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring until morsels and butter melt. Place cereal and crackers in a large bowl; add melted white chocolate mixture. Stir until well coated. Let cool slightly.

Place powdered sugar in a gallon sized zip lock plastic bag. Add coated cereal mixture in batches; seal bag, and toss well to coat. Combine sugar coated cereal mixture, almonds, and remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Stir gently to blend. Store in an airtight container.
