Gluten Free Lemon Cereal Bites


My daughter’s best friends mother made the Chex™ Lemon Buddies one day and they were REALLY good. A nice sweet lemony tasty snack. Today I decided I would try my hand at them. But of course I have to always do my own little twist on things. Nevertheless, the kids said they were good so that is all that matters, right?
