Lime Buddies Chex Mix

So, I will be 17 weeks tomorrow, which means I should be feeling better by now, but I am not. I am just wishing that this does not last the whole pregnancy. All I want for Christmas this year is for the morning sickness to go away :(

Anyways, we needed to make something easy for a Christmas treat for some of my husband's coworkers/teacher friends at school and I saw this recipe for Lemon Buddies Chex Mix on a box of Rice Chex. It looked so good and we had all of the ingredients except for a lemon. We had a lime though so we figured we'd give it a try with the lime. I am so glad that we did, it turned out so good and it only took 15 minutes!

Chex Lime Buddies
adapted from this recipe

9 cups Rice Chex cereal
1 1/4 cups white vanilla baking chips (we just used 10oz of vanilla candy coating)
1/4 cup butter or margarine
4 teaspoons grated lime peel (about half a lime)
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (about half a lime)
2 cups powdered sugar

1. Measure cereal into a large bowl and set aside.

2. In a 1-quart microwavable bowl, microwave chips, butter, lime peel, and lime juice uncovered on high for 1 minute; stir. Microwave for about 30 seconds more or longer until mixture can be stirred smooth. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated.

3. Pour powdered sugar and cereal into a 2 gallon ziploc bag and seal. Gently shake until well coated. Spread on waxed paper or foil to cool. Store in a resealable container.

Holiday Shipping Deadlines and Other Announcements

Sorry for the blog neglect, I was feeling pretty good for a while, but have had a couple of bad days. I am hoping to be feeling all the way better soon.

In the meantime, I have been busy filling holiday orders and getting ready for my first Ris C party! That's right, if you live in the Lehi, UT area and want to buy some of my jewelry or hair accessories without having to pay for shipping, I will be having a party on Wednesday Dec. 12th from 6:30-8:30. If you are interested, email me at rischandmade[at]gmail[dot] com and I will get you the address. It will be a combined party with my friend who also sells hair accessories and her stuff is super cute! I hope there is a good turn out because I spent over 3 hours sanding the backs of 132 resin flowers for earrings the other night. I was so sore, but it felt so good to get so many done.

Also for those of you last minute shoppers, there is still time to order off my Etsy Shop and get them in time for Christmas. For ready-made items, you have until Friday the 16th to order and today is the last day for custom items like my headbands (although chances are, as long as you order in the next few days, I should be able to get those out on time too.)
