Ingredients
  • 1 c powdered sugar
  • 4 c of your favorite Chex cereal
  • About 1 c (about four rectangular sheets) graham crackers broken into pieces similar in size to the Chex (see Note)
  • 1½ c white chocolate chips
  • 2 T unsalted butter
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 2 t lime zest
  • 1 T lime juice
Instructions
  1. Place powdered sugar in a large zip top plastic bag and set aside.
  2. Gently toss together the Chex and graham cracker pieces in a large bowl.
  3. Combine the white chocolate chips, butter, vanilla, lime zest and lime juice in a bowl and gently melt in the microwave or over a double boiler. If doing it in the microwave, use 50% power and stir every 15-30 second until melted. It may look slightly thick and clumpy.
  4. Pour chocolate mixture over the Chex mixture and gently stir and toss until fully coated, breaking up any large clumps that may form.
  5. Transfer the cereal mixture to the plastic bag with the powdered sugar seal and toss until fully coated.
  6. Pour out onto a sheet pan lined with a nonstick baking mat or wax paper and allow to cool and harden.
  7. Store in an airtight container.
Notes
To make this gluten free, use another 1 c Chex (perhaps try the Cinnamon Sugar Chex), or gluten free graham crackers.
