Lemon Cadbury Puppy Chow

Lemon Cadbury Puppy Chow

The Story:

“What happens when two bloggers meet in the woods?”

I don’t know, but what happens when two bloggers go on a date?  Interesting things happen….

I met his grandpa, we went swing dancing in the kitchen, he attempted to flip me over, and somehow I still ended up covered in flour baking for him. [end-story]

Lemon Cadbury Puppy Chow


10 cups rice Chex cereal
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips or melts
1/4 cup butter
4 tsp lemon zest
2 tsp lemon juice
yellow food dye, optional
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 Tbsp. lemon gelatin (powder)
1 bag Cadbury Eggs


1. Place cereal in a large bowl.
2. In a microwave proof bowl place white chocolate, butter, lemon zest and lemon juice.
3. Melt and stir until smooth.
4. Mix in food dye and pour over cereal and gently fold until covered.
5. Pour powdered sugar and lemon gelatin (just the jello gelatin is fine) over the cereal and gently stir. (You can also use plastic bags and shake to cover the cereal in sugar.)
6. Dump onto cookie sheets and let cool.
7. Add Cadbury Eggs and enjoy my favorite flavor combo...lemon and chocolate. Happy Easter!

    I haven’t tried your recipe, but my sister made a version of lemon puppy chow, and after is sets, it gets stale. Any suggestions on what to do to prevent this.

      Hm… Well puppy chow made without peanut butter needs something else in it to keep it from getting stale, so I think the butter in this recipe will help with that. I didn’t notice it being stale the next day.

      I have 3 more puppy chow recipes just waited to be posted, so you will be happy about that! One is seriously TO DIE FOR! But this blogger was a one time date, we decided the blogging world wouldn’t be able to handle it if we stayed together.

    I was wondering if there is something wrong with the E-mailing list messages because for some reason the pictures dont show up anymore and it doesnt show the recipe. I wasent sure if you’ve changed it or if its messed up?

    Hey Lizzy I made one of your Puppy Chow recipes and used Wilton colored candy melts in place of white chocolate and it worked brilliantly! No dye needed plus it really brings out the color. Have you tried this? Maybe you have and I just missed it. But I really like all these! Keep them coming!

      I actually only use melts 🙂 I get them out of the bargain bins at my grocery store and I LOVE them. Some people just may want a little more yellow, so I put it in as an option.
