Monday Muncher- Lemon Chex Mix

OK I haven't had a gluten free monday muncher in a while! My husband loves everything lemon! So I decided to try a spin on "puppy chow".

You will need:
1 1/2 cups of Vanilla Chips (I used Hershey)
1/4 cup of butter
2 lemons (to make lemon zest)
1/2 tsp of lemon juice
9 cups of Chex Mix Cereal (I got GF rice chex)
2 cups of powdered sugar

First measure out 9 cups of Chex Mix!
Zest the lemon with a lemon zester. Then chop in half and get 1/4 tsp of lemon juice.
( If you don't have a zester, you can find one in any utensil aisle! It's worth the purchase because lemon zest provides so much flavor to so many recipes!)
In a separate bowl, mix the lemon zest, lemon juice, vanilla chips and butter.

Once you mix it all together it looks like this!

Mix with the powdered sugar in a large baggie and place on wax paper to cool off!

Seal it in an air tight container to eat for later!

Nice thing about this recipe is clean up is a breeze!

This mix makes for an easy (and frugal) giveaway mix for gifts during the holiday season! Buy a cute container or those cute baggies and give for teachers/SLP's/students!
