Lemon Buddies

This yummy snack is like a tasty, springtime version of  the Muddy Buddies we made a couple months ago.  It's really easy to make and tastes sort of like little, crunchy lemon squares.  (Plus, you get to zest/grate a lemon, which always makes me feel like I'm some kind of fancy cook! ;)  )

Oh, and since we usually call Muddy Buddies "Monkey Munch", the kids thought this snack should have an animal name as well.  They've dubbed these "Lemon Shark Snack Squares".  Their new name is a little bit long for me, but whatever you want to call them, they're yummy!

Here's the really easy recipe (from the Chex website)


  • 9 cups Rice Chex
  • 1 1/4 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 4 tsp. grated lemon peel
  • 2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

Here's what you do:

1.  Measure your cereal into a large bowl and set aside.

2. Grate your lemon and squeeze out your fresh lemon juice.

 3. Put your lemon peel, lemon juice, white chocolate chips and butter in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 1 minute.  Stir, then microwave another 30 seconds or so until it's all melted and well combined when you stir.

4. Pour the lemon mixture over your cereal and stir gently to coat the cereal.

5.  Put about half the cereal mixture in a gallon size Ziploc bag, add one cup of powdered sugar, then add the rest of the cereal and the other cup of powdered sugar.

6. Tightly seal up the bag and shake to coat the cereal with sugar.

7.  Spread on waxed paper to cool, then store in an air-tight container.

This snack is really tasty and would make a cute little gift if you packaged it up in a pretty bag.

  27. لقد اثبت الدراسات والبحوث ان العيش في بيئة مغلقة ورديئة التهوية يعد من الأسباب التي تتسبب في الاكتئاب والإحباط للكثير من الأشخاص وهو ما يزيد في حالة كون المنزل غير نظيف لطلب شركة نظافة بالرياض وليس فقط سيء التهوية لذلك يحاط الأشخاص بطاقة إيجابية حينما يتواجدوا في بيئة صحية ونظيفة شركة تنظيف بالرياض وخاصة وأن الطاقة الإيجابية تدفع للانتهاء من كافة أعمال التنظيف وانجاز الأنشطة الآخرى في وقت قصير وبذلك تتحسن الحالة النفسية بتحسن النظافة.
