I'll give this recipe 5 stars just for the idea...I knew I would love it before I made it. I LOVE lemon that just pops, so I made a few tweaks.
I made a strong 1/2 batch to try it out...5 cups cereal, plus 1/2 the other ingredients, rounding up a little. I also added about 1/8 t. extra fine salt (found with the popcorn seasonings). I think salt rounds out almost any dish. AND, to add a little zing to the coating, I added 3 packets of True Lemon to the powdered sugar. True Lemon (and lime, and orange) are usually with the juices in the store, or sometimes the tea, or sweeteners. It really added what I demand from a lemon treat. I used a large (wide) stainless steel bowl for mixing and coating, and didn't bother with a plastic bag. I also bake my regular Chex mix in that large bowl...all 18-20 cups of it. Much easier than spreading on sheet pans. I just bake it about 1/2 hour longer, stirring every 15 minutes. Thanks, Chex!
