Lavender Lemon Rice Krispy Treats

Crispy, floral, zesty lavender lemon rice krispy treats will delight all of your senses. Super light with fluffy marshmallow and the crunch we all love, paired with lavender + lemon, I think we created the perfect spring treat.

Rice krispy treats are one of those things I didn’t know I was a huge fan of until I started making them from scratch at home. Like buttercream, once you taste them made fresh, and realize it’s so simple to make, you’ll never be able to get them from the store again. Plus, I had some leftover Lavender Honey Marshmallows and wanted to do something creative with them!

Microwave instructions:

In microwave-safe bowl heat butter and marshmallows, vanilla extract, lemon zest and lavender on high for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Follow steps 2 and 3 above.

How To Garnish:

I simply melted some white chocolate into a honey comb mold, and broke it into pieces after it cooled to place on top of the rice krispy treats for a fancy feel. I also added a few pressed pansies! Finally, I added in some wooden candy sticks to make them look like whimsical wands!
