Lemon Rice Krispie Treats

Rice Krispie Treats are a favorite around this house.....just as they have been popular in all homes with kids for many years! Since I can make the recipe practically in my sleep, I'm always eager to try something different. I discovered several versions for "lemon" flavored treats on Pinterest and had to try it. This recipe only takes a few more steps to achieve the extra lemon kick....but the extra time is worth it! Especially if you love lemon like we do! I promise that you can't stop at one! 
Lemon Rice Krispie Treats

4 tablespoons butter
zest of 1 lemon
juice of 1 lemon
1 and 1/2 bags of mini-marshmallows (10 oz bags)
2/3 cup Lemon cake mix
6 cups Rice Krispie Cereal

Prepare a 9 x 13 inch pan with shortening or Pam spray; set aside.  In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add in the lemon zest, lemon juice and marshmallows; stir until completely melted. Slowly stir in the dry cake mix. Remove from heat and mix in the cereal.  Then pour into the prepared pan and spread out evenly. Let set for at least 30 minutes and then enjoy!!!

note* I added another heaping 1 cup of mini-marshmallows to the mixture just before spreading it out into the greased 9 x 13 inch pan.
