My friend Tirzah made these for her kids on the first day of school this week and posted about them on Facebook. I am a sucker for ANYTHING lemon, so I gave them a try today since I had a box of Rice Chex that needed to be used, and many packages of white chocolate chips in food storage. These were quick and easy and my husband and I loved how fresh and yummy they were! I think I will make some of this to take on our upcoming trip for snacking! YUMMMY!!!
