Limoncello Rice Krispie Clusters

Limoncello Krispie Clusters

This recipe was sponsored by Paper Eskimo.

It’s almost the end of the school year and that means that it’s teacher gift time.  I am all about food gifts for teachers – accompanied, of course, by sweet hand-written notes from the kids.  Limoncello Rice Krispie Clusters are perfect for the special teacher(s) in your life. Rice Krispie treats take on a whole new bright and summery flavor when you add a splash of limoncello.  Coat the treats in chocolate and you’ve got an A+ dessert.

While you can’t judge a book by its cover, teachers know that presentation matters.  (Surely I wasn’t the only one who got dinged for penmanship as a kid.)  I packaged my Limoncello Rice Krispie Clusters in Paper Eskimo’s Mint to Be treat bags shown above.

    I tried these today, thinking I would sub white chocolate for the dark chocolate. Unfortunately, the scoops wouldn’t stick together enough to dip them, so I had to just press them in a greased pan. They tasted really good, but it just wasn’t the same. :(
