Grab a box of cereal and a bag of marshmallows and let’s get cooking. After all, in under 30 minutes you could be biting into one of these sweet, marshmallow rice krispie treats. A classic recipe that everyone loves.

Update

Since we posted this recipe in March of 2013, we have added another layer to these already delicious marshmallow krispie treats. Lemon Meringue Pie just isn’t Lemon Meringue Pie without the meringue part, right? It would just be a lemon pie. Well we decided the Lemon Meringue Krispie Treats can’t or shouldn’t be called “meringue” if there isn’t a meringue somewhere in the recipe. Soo we topped the krispie treats with a meringue!! Genius!!
