Lemonade Chex

Happy 2nd of July!!  Only roughly 1 1/2 more days until one of the best days of the year.  BBQ’s and Budweiser make the USA the best place ever.  Any excuse to get together with friends and family and just enjoy the sun and some laughs is a good day.  It is hard to decide what to eat on the 4th because you could make a bunch of wonderful crowd pleasing food, or you can just get all kinds of American and take the easy way out.  I’m talking chips, dips, hot dogs and hamburgers.  Maybe cut open a watermelon if you are feeling really crazy.  A quick snack to have around that you can make a couple days before (like tonight) is this lovely lemony chex mix.  It is so simple to throw together, it is sweet, and it is just lemony enough.

First melt your chocolate and get you ingredients ready.

      Hello Cyndi!
      When you are melting the white chocolate in a small bowl, it tends to get clumpy and thick, adding shortening once it is melted will help to smooth and thin the white chocolate and makes it easier to pour over the chex. Hope that helps!
