Lemon Chex

Chex Mix is a popular snack at our house around the holidays. We make it ourselves and use safer ingredients and we love to vary the way we make it. Today we are making a savory chex mix using a Moroccan spice blend and hot sauce and I also made Lemon Chex, which is more my style when it comes to sweets.

4 cups of Rice Chex(other flavors are too strong for this recipe)
1/2 cup of Vanilla Chips
1 1/2 tsp of lemon powder
powdered sugar

The How Tos
Place the Rice Chex(or equivalent) in a large bowl. Melt the vanilla chips in a saucepan. Stir in lemon powder, adding more or less to suit your taste, remembering that the lemon will be offset by the coating of powdered sugar at the end. Pour the melted vanilla chips over the chex and mix well. Spoon the mixture into a gallon ziplock bag and add about a cup of powdered sugar. Seal the bag and shake well to coat the cereal mixture with the sugar. Spread out on a baking sheet to cool. Store in an airtight container.
