easy lemon treat

Lemon Rice Krispie Treats
Makes a 13″ x 9″ pan
6 cups of rice krispie cereal
4 cups of mini marshmallows
3 T. butter
2 large lemons
Yellow food coloring

In a large pot over medium heat, melt the butter and add marshmallows, stirring until they begin to melt.  Add the zest from the lemons and a few drops of yellow food coloring.  One the mixture is completely melted, add the cereal and stir to coat well.  Spread into a buttered 13″ x 9″ inch pan and allow to cool completely.  Cut into squares and dust with powdered sugar.
