    How to make lemon puppy chow

    1. Prepare. Pour Chex into a large bowl. Then add powdered sugar, lemon zest and powder in a zip top bag. Shake and set aside.
    2. Melt chocolate. Microwave the white chocolate in a bowl for 1 minute at 50% power. Stir and cook in 15 second increments until smooth.
    3. Mix. Pour the melted chocolate over the cereal and stir until coated. Then quickly pour the Chex into the bag with the powdered sugar and shake until the cereal is well covered.

    Storing tips

    To store the puppy chow, simply pour it in an airtight container or bag. It will keep at room temperature for up to one week. That is, if your family doesn’t eat it before then! ;)
