Okay...so I bought a box of Rice Chex Cereal and as I was throwing the box away this recipe on the back caught my attention. I love lemon flavoring so I HAD to make it! DELICIOUS! My kids liked it too. With school coming up, what a GREAT and somewhat healthy after school snack. And in the words of Betsy herself.....this is "easy, easy, easy!"
|9||cups Rice Chex® cereal|
|1 1/4||cups white vanilla baking chips|
|1/4||cup butter or margarine|
|4||teaspoons grated lemon peel|
|2||tablespoons fresh lemon juice|
|2||cups powdered sugar|
|1.||Into large bowl, measure cereal; set aside.|
|2.||In 1-quart microwavable bowl, microwave chips, butter, lemon peel and juice uncovered on High 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth.
