Lemon Bar Buddies

The mountains have opened and it is officially snowboard season! We’re going to need something to munch on while riding the many chairlifts to the top. Muddy Buddies are great, but these bad boys are better…

Lemon Bar Buddies
-  9 cups Rice Chex cereal
-  1 1/4 cups white vanilla chocolate chips
-  1/4 cup butter
-  4 tsp grated lemon peel
-  2 tbsp lemon juice
-  1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Well Melissa loves white chocolate…. I think she’s nuts. If you’re like me, just the thought of white chocolate puts a sour taste in my mouth. Don’t worry, if you didn’t know there was white chocolate in these, you couldn’t even tell.

After the lemon was zested and juiced, everything but the Chex and powdered sugar were combined and melted in the microwave.

In a large bowl, the mixture was folded in with the Chex and tossed in powdered sugar.

Nothin’ wrong with turning some healthy breakfast cereal into a sweet, delicious and melt-in-your-mouth snack
