Making this recipe as directed results in soggy chex mix! For my second batch, after adding the powdered sugar, I spread the mix on a baking sheet and backed for 30 minutes at 250 degrees, stirring at 10 minute intervals. This resulted in nice crispy, lemon chex! Delicious!

I made this for a group meeting and everyone loved it. They were all trying to guess how it was made. For a change I added some dried cranberries to it...it disappears everytime.

Well, shoot. This stuff is awesome. Now we can't quit eating it. I understand why a previous reviewer said it was "soggy", but perhaps that person didn't spread it out to cool first. The Chex doesn't stay as crunchy as it is out of the box, but it will be fairly crispy after cooling. I didn't have zest, so it wasn't as lemony as it should have been, but it isn't slowing my family down....
