Key Lime Pie Rice Krispie TreatsPosted by Cupcake Kelly on May 9, 2012 in Brownies & Squares | 7 comments
These Rice Krispie Treats are so much fun! I made them awhile ago using my leftover Kool Aid Pop Rocks Marshmallows but they seem more suited to spring and summer. I sprinkled the top with crushed meringues to make them look like little key lime pies.
The Kool Aid really gives the squares a strong lime flavor. I didn’t add any extra food color but some green could be added to make them look more like pie.
If you don’t want to make your own marshmallows stir in a packet of lime kool aid after melting some regular marshmallows. The end result should taste the same.
3 tbs unsalted butter
3 cups Lime Marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies
Crushed meringues (I bought a package at the store and crumbled up a big handful)
- Lightly grease a pan with cooking spray. In a large pot melt the butter. Toss in the marshmallows and stir until melted. Add the Rice Krispies and stir until coated.
- Pour into pan. Press the crushed meringues on top. Cover in cling film until set and cut into squares.
