Rice Krispie Treats are one of those things that are super easy to play around with!  You can add all kinds of toppings (like caramel, pecans and chocolate for Turtle Rice Krispie Treats) or even stir in fun add ins (like Oreos and dip them in chocolate).  I think this citrusy lemon flavor might be one of my favorites though!

Not only are these no bake treats easy to make, but adding a little bit of lemony goodness makes this go-to recipe a flavor that is nothing short of luscious!  Perfect as dessert or to fill the lunchbox.

It is fresh, light and almost addictive! Be warned, you probably won’t be able to have just one of these! I like to add yellow candy melt to the top of my Lemon Rice Krispie Treats to give it an extra splash of special! While this step is optional, I highly recommend you give the candy topping a try!

You can also use any type of lemon candy or topping but I used Lemon Slices and cut each into 3. (Lemon Drops would be cute too)
