  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Microwave Safe Bowl
  • Ziploc Bag


  • 9 cups rice chex cereal
  • cups white chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 4 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 4 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cups powdered sugar


  • Measure cereal into a large mixing bowl and set aside.
  • In a microwaveable bowl, microwave white chocolate chips, butter, lemon zest and juice uncovered on high for 1 minute; stir.
  • Microwave about 30 more seconds or until mixture can be stirred smooth.
  • Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated.
  • Pour into a 2-gallon resealable food storage plastic bag.
  • Add powdered sugar, seal bag and shake until all the cereal is well-coated.


For this recipe, we don’t really recommend making them ahead of time. Because of the lemon juice in the recipe, it breaks down the cereal a little bit, and makes it a little soggy.
