  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 cups Chex cereal your favorite variety
  • 1 cup graham crackers broken into pieces similar in size to the Chex (see Note for a gluten free option)
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons lime zest
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice


  • Place powdered sugar in a large zip top plastic bag and set aside.
  • Gently toss together the Chex and graham cracker pieces in a large bowl.
  • 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.
  • Pour chocolate mixture over the Chex mixture and gently stir and toss until fully coated, breaking up any large clumps that may form.
  • Transfer the cereal mixture to the plastic bag with the powdered sugar seal and toss until fully coated.
  • Pour out onto a sheet pan lined with a nonstick baking mat or wax paper and allow to cool and harden.
  • Store in an airtight container.


To make this gluten free, use another 1 cup Chex (perhaps try the Cinnamon Sugar Chex), or gluten free graham crackers.
