Ingredients Needed for lemon rice krispie treats

Ingredients Needed

  • Crisp Rice Cereal

  • Powdered Lemonade Mix (such as this one)
  • Zest of One Lemon (I use a fine grater, like this one)
  • White Chocolate and Sprinkles, for garnish, optional

How to Make Lemon Rice Krispie Treats

I like making Rice Krispie treats in the microwave rather than on the stovetop, but you could really do either. First, you’ll melt together the marshmallows and butter and stir until smooth. Then, add the lemonade powder and lemon zest and mix well.

Pour the marshmallow mixture over the cereal and stir until well-combined. Press into a greased square pan (which I find easiest to do with a greased sheet of waxed paper!). Then drizzle with melted white chocolate and top with sprinkles! Let cool for a couple hours to set up…..or if you’re impatient like me, pop them in the fridge for 15 minutes, cut into squares and enjoy!

Store the rice krispie treats at room temperature.
