Since participating in the Easter Rice Krispies® challenge, I’ve had fun creating other fun flavor combinations when making our treats lately and couldn’t wait to share this recipe with you.

While this recipe is not submitted as part of my team’s official challenge, it was just too good to not share with you guys.

It’s one of those treats that immediately makes you think of those orange creamsicles that we love during the summer.

Orange creamsicles were my favorite ice cream snacks when I was growing up. We’d spend a few weekends on the lake with friends of my parents and the nearby convenience store always had a supply of these babies waiting for me and my sister. We’d quickly tear into the paper and carefully lick and lick and lick some more. In the hot sun, they would continue to melt and long drips of creamsicle would slowly run down onto our fingers to the sound of giggles and squeals.

Luckily, these treats bring back those memories without the sticky drips – although those are a lot of fun, too.

Now, here’s how I make these treats.

  1. My favorite thing to do in the summer is swimming! I also love taking walks right before the sun goes down for the night.

  2. Actually my favorite thing to do is actually something to do multiple times a day. Walk the dogs! It is just so much more enjoyable in the summer and I like to sit on our stoop or at the park so the dogs can have more outdoor time and/or “hunt” squirrels (they are never successful thanks to their leashes). We live in the city so outdoor time is much more limited. When it is nice out we like to take advantage of it!
    I can’t wait to make these treats. I love me some rice krispies!

  3. our fave summer time activity, is having cookouts, and hanging out at the pool! we love the water, and try to go as often as possible!!

  4. I love the site and like your FB page as well. As far as summer activities, My favorite by far is every Saturday night when weather permits, we have a huge bonfire in tha backyard and grill out.

  5. My favorite part of summer is that free feeling my husband and I have to do whatever we want even though we still have work the next day. Here in Washington state it stays light until 9 pm so we get a lot of daylight during the summer.

  6. My favorite summer activity is attending all of the wonderful food and music festivals! Thanks for the great blog and wonderful giveaway!

  7. In the summer, because of the outside heat, I try to find indoor projects
    to get involved in. I also read as much as I can find time for, love reading
    my cookbooks. Also, love the beach, the lapping waves on my feet, love the
    mountains.
