Weather looking gloomy? Take a bite of our Sunny Lemon Fruit Bites, 'cause their fresh lemon flavor is like a ray of sunshine.

What You'll Need:
  • 4 cups finely crushed toasted rice cereal
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 (4-serving) package lemon pie filling, prepared according to the package directions (see Note)
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 (15 -ounce) cans fruit cocktail, drained
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
  • 1 (8-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cereal, butter, and sugar. Spread half the mixture into a 9- x 13-inch baking dish, forming a crust. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, until light golden; let cool.
  3. In a large bowl, combine pie filling, sweetened condensed milk, fruit cocktail, and lemon rind; stir to thoroughly blend then spread over cooled crust. Cover evenly with whipped topping then sprinkle with remaining half of the cereal mixture. Cover and chill at least 2 hours before cutting into small squares and serving.

Make sure to use lemon pie filling and not lemon pudding for the filling.

Why is there no picture? I like to see what it is supposed to look like.

Hi there! We're working hard to make sure that each of our recipes has a photo with it. We've been around for a long time, and believe it or not, pictures were not taken every time a recipe was made. We hope to be able to put up a picture soon, and that you'll come back for more!

can this be made ahead, and frozen?

This looks delightful! I love anything lemon. My struggle is, I live in Australia & here we don't have cool whip, any suggestions on what I could use instead?

You can try to make your own whip cream with heavy cream and some confectionary sugar.

What is the cereal name -- that is used? I want to use it for a bible study in 3 weeks. Thank you.

We used Rice Krispies for this recipe. Thank you for your question!

I have made this similar recipe using Rice and Corn Chex cereal. It always makes a big hit in our household.
