Lemon Muddy Buddies

I am always looking for a quick treat to take to social events, vacations, or on hikes.  We are known for "popcorn" or "Chex" desserts in our neighborhood, and so I offer  yet another great option that anyone can make.  For those of you who have gluten-free friends, whip this up and they will adore you.  Just make sure you buy the Gluten Free Chex from General Mills - other brands still contain gluten.  I got this recipe from the Chex web site.

Lemon Muddy Buddies
4 1/2 c. Rice/Corn Chex
1/2 c. + 2 T. white chocolate chips(Guittard are my favorite)
2 T. butter
2 t. lemon zest
1 T. fresh lemon juice
1 c. powdered sugar
In a microwavable bowl, microwave chips, butter, lemon peel and juice uncovered on High 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Add cereal to mixture and stir until well coated.  Place powdered sugar in a large ziploc bag and  pour in Chex mixture.  Shake until well coated.  Spread on waxed paper or cookie sheet until cool.
