These Lemon Meringue Krispie Treats are actually flavored with a pudding mix! Mixing pudding right into the marshmallow base is a super easy and delicious way to flavor your krispie treats!
I am officially spring obsessed.
Yes, it’s still 30 degrees at my house today, and yes I suffer ridiculously from Spring allergies, but right now there is nothing more that I want than a 65 degree day and a handful of tissues.
I believe this is the never-ending winter. Never. Ending.
So what I have decided, is that I am going to crank up my heat, wear shorts around the house and eat citrus flavored food until May.
Because that is the most rational thing to do.
Anyhow, let’s start out the warmer days with a fun spin on a 2 classics! These are Lemon Meringue Krispie Treats AND I used a pudding mix to flavor the krispie treats! How fun is that? Honestly the possibilities are pretty endless, right?
AND I decided that they couldn’t be lemon MERINGUE unless there was meringue frosting involved. So yeah…these are everything you could hope for in a krispie treat.
Start you krispie treats like you normally would…melted butter, marshmallows…
BUT when the marshmallows are melted this time around go ahead and pour in your packet of dry pudding/pie filling mix.
Just stir the mix right into the melted marshmallow.
Then add in your cereal, like you normally would and stir.
Press that into a lined pan and let it cool.
Next up, make your topping.
It will require a candy thermometer. Sorry about that.
You beat some egg white and sugar in your bowl until they form soft peaks and then heat a sugar/corn syrup/water mixture until it reaches 230°.
Drizzle the hot mixture into the egg whites and beat it for 7 minutes.
Just spread than on your krispie treats.
And if you have one you can use your kitchen torch to toast the frosting…
If you don’t have a torch, no worries…just pop it under the broiler for a few seconds.
When you’re ready to cut it into squares easily remove it from the pan using the foil lining and cut!
I love the flavor of the lemon in these! Not over powering at all…just enough!
So many flavor possibilities! Can’t wait to make pistachio krispies! Look for those in the next few weeks!
