Here’s a delicious, fun and summery flavor twist on rice krispie treats!
This recipe below calls for yellow food coloring and lemon extract for the flavoring. If you’re an essential oiler person, you could sub the lemon extract for a few drops of lemon essential oil or Jade lemon essential oil. (That will keep you from needing to buy lemon extract, if you don’t have it on hand.)
This pan of rice krispies didn’t last long at my house!
Yum, yum, yum!
