True Lemon Chex Chow

True Lemon Vanilla Chex Chow

A citrus spin on the traditional chocolate puppy chow snack mix. Recipe adapted from Chex.


9 cups of Rice Chex cereal (or similar cereal)
1 1/4 cups white vanilla baking chips (alternate recipe: use chocolate baking chips)
1/4 cup butter or margarine
4 packets of True Lemon dissolved in 2 tablespoons of water (alternate recipe: use True Orange)
2 cups powdered sugar

  1. In a large bowl, measure cereal and set aside.
  2. In 1-quart microwavable bowl, microwave chips, butter, and True Lemon juice uncovered on high for 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. This can also be accomplished by using a double-boiler on the stove.
  3. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring gently until evenly coated.
  4. Pour chocolate-covered Chex into a 2-gallon resealable food storage plastic bag.
  5. Add powdered sugar. Seal bag and gently shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper or foil to let cool.
  6. Store in airtight container.

Makes 24 servings (1/2 cup each).
