Chex Lemon Buddies

Here is a simple and yummy snack idea I got from tasteofhome.com.  It's a lemony refreshing version of People Puppy Chow (made with peanut butter and chocolate chips).

What you will need:
  • 9 c Rice Chex (this is exactly a 12.8 oz box)
  • 1 1/4 c white baking chips
  • 1/4 c butter or margarine
  • 4 t grated lemon peel
  • 2T fresh lemon juice
  • 2 C powdered sugar
In large bowl measure cereal and set aside.  In a microwavable bowl, microwave chips, butter, lemon peel and juice uncovered on High for 1 minute, or until it can be stirred smooth.  Pour mixture over cereal and stir until coated evenly.  You can either put the powdered sugar in a resealable 2 gall. bag and shake it, or just pour it over the mixture and stir it until it's all covered.  I never have much luck with the bag so I just coated it in the bowl.  Spread out until cool then store in airtight container.
Enjoy!

UPDATE 8/29/12: It seems I left out one of the important ingredients before...it has been updated with the white baking chips
