Sweet and chewy Rice Krispies with a hint of tangy lemonade flavor.

Is it my imagination or does pink lemonade taste better than regular lemonade? I know its simply a matter of dye, but it always tastes slightly sweeter to me!

In addition, it looks so much prettier in the glass (because that’s important right?).

I love cooling off on a hot day with a tall frosty glass of sweet and tangy lemonade. That was the inspiration for these rice krispy treats. They capture the flavor of summer whether it is July or January.
