Step by Step Method

Step 1

Smear a 13 X 9 inch pan with some butter. Set it aside.

Step 2

Over low heat, melt the 4 1/2 tablespoons butter; adding the lemon zest and the lemon juice. Add the marshmallows, stirring until they're melted. Next, stir in the cake mix.

Step 3

Remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the cereal. Either butter your hands or a spatula. Press the cereal into the buttered pan and let it cool for 30 minutes before cutting them into squares.

I have overlooked this recipe a few times, because of the cake mix ingredient. But once and for all I decided to bite the bullet and give this recipe a go, and can I say "I am so pleased I did!" This is a really delightful and tasty recipe, its like a taste of spring in your mouth! These Krispies have the perfect combination of sweet and sour flavours, from the lemon, cake mix and marshmallows. These ingredients are like they are a match made in heaven! They also look so pretty on the plate and are a great recipe that I will be making again for sure!

Wowzers! I've made lots of different types of Rice Krispie Treats, but this is probably my favorite! Hubby thought these were a little "girly", but he took them to his men's Bible Study, and they were wolfed down. Compliments and not complaints! That being said, these are so good and pretty; they would be perfect for a ladies luncheon or a baby shower. Decorated with an icing flower? Thanks for sharing - this is a keeper!
