Lemonade Chex Mix

Last weekend, we made our own lemonade stand, complete with two types of lemonade and various lemon treats. The most popular treat that we sold was this sweet and sour lemon Chex mix. Not only is it a super yummy treat, it is also a super easy treat to make. You owe to it to yourself to make some! Here is the delicious recipe:

  • Pour the lemon mixture over the cereal and then gently stir until the Chex cereal is evenly coated
  • Transfer the Chex mix into 1 gallon Ziploc bags
  • Add the powdered sugar to the bag and shake until everything is evenly covered

How To Store Lemon Buddies Chex Mix

If you haven’t devoured the entire batch in one day, you’ll want to store any leftover mix in an airtight container and place them in the refrigerator. While regular Chex mix can stay fresh for several weeks if stored properly, this lemon mix won’t last nearly as long because it’s been covered in lemon juice, sugar and chocolate.

Stored properly, this mix should stay fresh for about two weeks after preparing it. However, if my kids see any of this in the fridge, it won’t last nearly that long.
