Lemon Buddies ... YUMMY!!!

Ever since I saw Lemon Buddies earlier this year I have wanted to try them.  I love the chocolate peanut butter version and I love lemon so I knew it would be a huge success. 

Well, I finally decided to give them a try for our trip.  Here is the actual recipe, as provided on the Chex website.  Only problem was, I did not have vanilla chips and I didn't have a lemon for the zest.  So of course, I improvised - a trait I have learned from my Mom who has always used a recipe as a guide!  {love you mom}
I substituted a bag of yellow vanilla candy melts for the vanilla chips and lime zest in place of the lemon zest.  I used some bottled lemon juice as well as some lemon extract as well.  My other alteration was I used the entire box of Rice Chex as it was only slightly more than the 9 cups.

They were yummy!  Can't wait to snack on them in the car on our way to California!
