Lemon Puppy Chow

This recipe is a refreshing dessert for summer; it's lighter than the original peanut butter and chocolate Puppy Chow. Mike absolutely devoured this and is begging me to make it again (he's a huge lemon fan)! I thought it was really good as well; however, as a chocaholic and a peanut butter lover, I still prefer traditional Puppy Chow.

Lemon Puppy Chow
·2 cups Rice Chex cereal
·¼ cup white vanilla baking chips
·1 TBS butter
·1 tsp grated lemon peel
·½ TBS fresh lemon juice
·½ cup powdered sugar

Measure cereal into a large bowl and set aside. In a microwavable bowl, microwave vanilla baking chips, butter, lemon peel, and juice on high for 1 minute. Stir and microwave about 30 seconds longer (or until mixture can be stirred smooth).

Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Add powdered sugar and stir until well coated. Allow mixture to cool before storing in an airtight container.

Recipe slightly modified from Chex®

I made this and it taste good but my sauce didnt come out as evenly, it was kind of thick so I dont think it covered as much cereal as I had hoped. Is there something I did wrong?

Blue Lou - I'm not sure exactly what went wrong, but you could have over-melted the white bakIng chips or let the mixture sit too long before mixing with the cereal.
