- 10 oz jar Lemon curd
- 2 cups White chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup Butter
- 12 cups Rice Chex cereal
- 3 cups Powdered sugar
Lemon tastes like sunshine. Not the relentless burning sunshine of a desert summer, of course. Lemon tastes like the light, delightful sunshine that kisses your face on a spring day.
I love lemon bars – but let’s be honest. I rarely have the time and patience to make them. This simplified recipe makes a giant batch of lemony goodness, and the delightful crunch puts them first on my list of sunshine-flavored desserts.
They are not low-calorie or low-sugar, so they’re best saved for occasions when you want to indulge a little. They’re lovely on the table at a book club, luncheon or tea party.
When presenting this treat as a gift (or auction item) I like to fill a mason jar, tie a pretty bow and add a tag. Not only is the jar reusable, but the glass also allows the lemony goodness to really shine through.
Melt the white chocolate, butter, and lemon curd in the microwave for 2-3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds or so until melted and smooth.
Add Rice Chex to a large container with lid, then pour the lemon mixture over top. Place the lid on the container and shake until cereal is evenly coated.
Add powdered sugar to mixture and shake again until cereal is well-coated.
Spread the mixture on parchment paper or two jelly roll pans and allow to cool completely.
Store in an airtight container if you won’t be eating them immediately.
