Ingredients:

- 6 cups crispy rice cereal

- 1 package (10 ounces) marshmallows

- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter

- Zest of 2 key limes

- 2 tablespoons key lime juice

- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

- Green food coloring (optional)

- Extra key lime zest for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

1. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish with butter or non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

2. In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until completely melted and smooth.

3. Once the marshmallows are melted, stir in the key lime zest, key lime juice, vanilla extract, and green food coloring (if using). Stir until well combined and the mixture is evenly colored.

4. Remove the saucepan from the heat and quickly stir in the crispy rice cereal, mixing until the cereal is evenly coated with the marshmallow mixture.

5. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish and press it down evenly using a spatula or your hands.

6. If desired, sprinkle additional key lime zest over the top of the treats for garnish.

7. Allow the treats to cool and set at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before slicing into squares.

8. Once cooled and set, cut into squares and serve.
