Chex Lemon Buddies

"I would like to make an assortment of buddies/puppy chow. This is the first lemon one I've heard of. Its got fresh lemon juice, peel and white chocolate chips. I got this recipe from one of those grocery store recipe cards my Dh is always bringing home. I would suggest holding back a cup or so of chex until you have seen how much coverage there is on the cereal. I ususally like a bit more stuff on my cereal than the recipe calls for."

    I've had puppy chow before and always loved it, but this is a first with lemon and it won't be the last, so addicting, I've already had the recipe requested twice and passed it on. Love the lemon with the white chocolate,

    These are so very good and so very easy! To increase the lemony-ness, I tossed it in 1.5 cups of dry lemon cake mix and appx 1/4 cup powdered sugar instead of straight powdered sugar. Thanks for posting!

    This is totally AMAZING!!!!!! I made a triple batch to send with our daughter and son for 'girls night' and 'guys night' - now i just want to keep it all for myself! It is absolutely perfect!!!

    This stuff is addicting! I've made it two days in a row. Finally had to put a lid on the container to keep me from grabbing another handful every time I walked past it. Very nice variation on the puppy chow/Muddy Buddies concept.

    If you like lemon and you like puppy chow - this is the recipe for you! Made as is and wouldn't change a thing. I found that 1 large lemon yield the perfect amount of zest and juice called for in this recipe. Thanks!


<p>I am a stay at home mom with&nbsp;5 wonderful children. When I have time I love to scrapbook and journal. I also crochet and do cross-stitch and enjoy reading my Bible. Sometimes I am all into trying new things then other times I only want old standbys. I like to get veggies into my picky kids by sneaking them in where they were not expecting them. I've learned that its improtant to try new things 2 or 3 times before you can really consider it rejected. Sometimes the second time you offer it to them they will scarf it down, when the first time they barely got down the mandatory taste bite. Go figure.</p> 8725182"
