Key Lime Muddy Buddies

Key Lime Muddy Buddies



8 c. Rice Chex cereal

1 1/4 c. white chocolate chips

1/4 c. (1/2 stick) butter 

1 tsp. lime zest

2 Tbsp. lime juice

1/4 c. sweetened, shredded coconut (optional)

2 cups powdered sugar


Get a giant mixing bowl, and measure out cereal. Set aside. Combine white chocolate, butter, zest, and lime juice in a 1 qt. microwaveable bowl, and microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir. Continue microwaving in 30 second intervals until chocolate is melted and mixture can be stirred smooth. (It will look scary. Just go with it.) Pour over cereal and toss to coat thoroughly. If you're going to add coconut, add it now -- it will stick to the chocolate mixture. Put one cup powdered sugar in each of two gallon-size ziplock bags. Divide the cereal mixture between the two bags, and shake, shake, shake! (An assistant comes in handy, if you can find one.) Let cool, and eat!
