10ouncesmarshmallows(about 40 regular OR 6 cups mini)
4 2/3cups Rice Krispies cereal
1teaspoon pure lemon extract (3/4 tsp for milder flavor, 1 1/2 tsp for stronger flavor)
3ouncesvanilla candy coating or candy melts
zest from 1 to 2 lemons
Coat a large bowl with cooking spray and add the Rice Krispies. Set aside.
Line the baking pan with non-stick foil.
In a large, microwave-safe bowl, placemarshmallows and butter, sliced. Microwave for 1 minute on high. Stir, using the residual heat to fully melt the mixture. If needed, microwave for an additional 30 seconds. Stir until smooth.
Add lemon extract and stir.
Scrape the mixture over the cereal and stir well, coating all of the cereal. Transfer to the prepared baking pan and pat evenly with a spatula.
Zest at least one lemon and set aside.
In a microwave-safe bowl, add the candy coating (coarsely chopped) or the candy melts. Melt according to package directions. I microwave for 1 minute at 50 percent power. Stir very well, using the residual heat to fully melt the candy.
When cool to the touch, transfer to the decorating bag or Ziploc bag and snip the tip. Pipe the candy back and forth across the treats. Immediately sprinkle lemon zest on top.
Let set for 2 hours (you may chill in the refrigerator, too).
Cut into 16 squares.
TIP: Spray your bowls and spatulas with cooking spray to make things easier.
