Lovin' lime?
If you love limes, you're in for a treat, this is a tart lime flavor. If lime peel puts you over the top, leave the peel out, the limeade concentrate gives enough flavor without the peel.
Preparation Directions
1.In large microwavable bowl, measure cereal and pistachios; set aside.
2.In 2-cup microwavable measuring cup, microwave butter until melted, about 30 seconds. Stir in brown sugar and juice concentrate; microwave on High 30 seconds; stir. Microwave 30 seconds longer or until mixture is boiling; stir in lime peel. Pour over cereal mixture, stirring until evenly coated.
3.Microwave uncovered on High about 3 minutes, stirring every minute, until cereal is glazed. Spread on waxed paper to cool. (Cereal will crisp as it stands.) Store in airtight container.
