Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350°F.
Mix cream cheese and granulated sugar until blended. Spread each of 4 bread slices with 2 Tbsp. cream cheese mixture. Cover with remaining bread slices to make 4 sandwiches.
Spray baking sheet with cooking spray. Whisk eggs and milk in shallow dish until blended. Place crushed cereal in separate shallow dish. Dip sandwiches, 1 at a time, into egg mixture, then cereal, turning to evenly coat both sides of each sandwich with each ingredient. Place on prepared baking sheet. Press cereal gently into sandwiches to secure.
Bake 20 min. or until golden brown. Cut each sandwich diagonally in half; top with fruit. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve with syrup.
