Pink Lemonade Rice Krispy Treats

So after two months in Europe, I am back in the USA. This week, I have spent a lot of time telling people about my adventures in Germany and how it was a truly was an incredible experience. I have so many stories about the people I met and the places I visited - and I did learn quite a few things about the German culture. More specifically, the Germans have no idea what a Rice Krispy Treat is.

Homemade Rice Krispy Treats with a Twist

In the US, these marshmallow treats are considered a staple in every home. There is no baking involved, the process is super easy to make, and they are DELICIOUS. I even did a "How To" project about then in 7th grade.

But somehow, Germans missed the memo on these. So when I started melting marshmallows at the treatment center, they all looked at me like I was crazy. When I presented them with the final product their minds were literally BLOWN. They were all gathered around me watching me cut them like I had just shown them the most amazing thing they had ever seen. It was hilarious. And the kids LOVED them.

So today, I have put a little summer spin on the delicacy that is the Rice Krispy Treat. For me, there is nothing better than an ice cold lemonade on a hot summer day, so I created some Pink Lemonade Rice Krispy Treats! A little food coloring and a a hint of lemon extract give the traditional treat a sweet summer makeover!

I might be the only person in the history of the world that has ever been grounded from baking. That's right. When I was a teen, it wasn't the computer, or the phone or the tv that got taken away. For me, it was the unsalted butter.

Can I substitute lemon juice or something else for the lemon extract

Lindsay Nathanson

You will need to use a lot of lemon juice (and probably some lemon zest) in order to get enough lemon flavor.
