I have recently discovered a love for the site Pinterest – so many delicious recipes, wonderful ingredients and not to mention hundreds of thousands of recipes under the category (one of my favorite categories) “LEMON”. Most of the pins that I “pin” are that of either chocolate or lemon…and this recipe combines BOTH beautifully. White chocolate and lemon are pared together in this simple (and delicious) “Chex Mix” recipe. I have to credit my Aunt Kami for finding and this sending this recipe my way – thank you!
I had actually already tried the bagged version of this that they sell in supermarkets – but I was disappointed because the taste was “chemical” to me. This version is simple, light and fresh! I will be returning to make this recipe again and again…and I hope you will to!
Lemon Bar “Puppy Chow”
8 cups Rice “Chex” cereal
1 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup lemon curd
1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 – 2 cups powdered sugar
Before starting this recipe make sure you have two CLEAN big brown paper grocery sacks. It is really the easiest way to make it. If you do not – get some before making this recipe. Not many groceries store have these, but I believe Kroger (Pay Less) does if you ask at Customer Service. Meijer too.
Start by combining the white chocolate, butter and lemon curd in a saucepan over low heat stirring constantly until melted together.
Pour the Rice “Chex” cereal into the large big brown paper grocery sack. (I used TWO sacks – one within the other to prevent any potential mess…)
Once the lemon and white chocolate mixture is melted (you do not want the mixture to boil – just melt together) pour it into the grocery sack all over the tops of the cereal.
Fold the grocery sack down and shake to coat evenly.
Unfold the bag and add the powdered sugar. Start with the 1 1/2 cups – if you think you need a little more, add it at the end.
Once the powdered sugar is in the bag, close it up and shake well again.
Spread out the finished mixture on a cookie sheet to cool completely.
Storing this at room temperature in an airtight container will have it last about 5 days.
