Pin It  Lemon Puppy Chow Recipe

Have y’all ever tried this in the lemon version?  This is so different from the chocolate/peanut butter recipe.  If you have never tried lemon puppy chow – your time has come.  As I am anxiously awaiting Spring, I have been looking for great new refreshing ideas that will be nice for warmer weather.  We don’t have that much longer to wait y’all.  Spring is almost here.  Woohoo!

Lemon Puppy Chow

The lemon flavor adds a delicious twist when combined with the white chocolate.  This has the same texture and addictive nature as regular puppy chow, but with a lighter citrus-y flavor.  So far, all of my taste testers have loved it – this stuff is good.  This is quite possibly my favorite of the puppy chow recipes.  I hope y’all try it and like it as much as we did.  Make sure you have plenty of people around to help you eat it.  It’s addictive

    Tastes good, but the lemon juice caused the chocolate to seize. I thought that might happen, but I wanted to trust the process. Enough of the oil from the seized chocolate/butter mixture separated that the powdered sugar mixture was able to stick to the Chex, but the chocolate was in one blob. I used my hands to break it apart into smaller blobs and tossed it all together. My boyfriend is still pleased but I’m pretty disappointed with the result.
