Rice Krispie Treats are one of our favorite treats to make. They’re gluten-free and just plain yummy. I’ve loved them ever since I was a child. Abby and I have had a lot of fun experimenting with different flavors and shapes over the past several months. We’ve made dark chocolate cherry treats, and heart shaped treats with pink candy drizzle for Valentine’s day. For the summer I wanted to try something with a bit of a citrus twist and I was dying to use my DoTerra essential oils… could it work?
Why lime, you might ask?
Plus, it just tastes great, right? I’ve been putting a drop of DoTerra lime essential oil in my water every morning to cleanse my body and I love it. It’s refreshing and it tastes great! I thought it would taste so good paired with coconut, so I combined the two in a Rice Krispie Treat! Here’s how I did it:
-Combine 3 TBSP of unsalted butter and one 16 ounce bag of mini marshmallows in a large stock pot. Heat over low-medium heat until melted. Remove from heat.
-Stir in 3 drops of lime essential oil to the marshmallow/butter mixture, stir well.
-Add 6 cups of Rice Krispies and unsweetened shredded coconut to the marshmallow mixture and combine well. I think I added about 3/4 cup of coconut (I didn’t measure it. Add as much as you like.)
-Press mixture into a lightly greased 9×13 Pyrex or glass baking dish. Press flat with wax paper and allow to cool. Cut into squares and enjoy!
These turned out to be so delicious! The lime flavor is not overwhelming, but definitely noticeable. It makes for a really yummy summertime treat! I hope you like them!
