Lemon Puppy Chow

I’m guessing most people are familiar with puppy chow – chex mix coated in a mixture of chocolate and peanut butter then covered in powdered sugar. But I’m also guessing that you’ve never tried a lemon version! This lemon puppy chow is a recipe that’s perfect for Summer. It has a bright citrus flavor, but it has the same texture and addictive nature of regular puppy chow.  I couldn’t seem to stop eating it! Everyone I’ve shared it with has felt the same way – this stuff is so good! You can bet that I’ll be making this again and I hope you try it and enjoy it as much as we did. But I’m warning you – you should only make this if you have plenty of people to share it with – it’s too dangerous otherwise!
