Festive Fourth of July Rice Krispie Treat Recipe
Rice Krispie treats are an amazing dessert. Low effort, huge payoff. Everyone has had one, and almost anyone can make them. This Fourth of July, we put a little twist on the recipe to salute Old Glory, but making them red, white and blue! Delicious, easy, and very quick to make, you can crank these out last-minute and still look like a hero at the next Independence Day cookout.
- - 6 c. of Rice Krispies Cereal (divided into 3 sets of 2 c.)
- - 1 package of marshmallows (divided evenly into 3 sets)
- - 3 TB butter or margarine (divided into 3 servings of 1 TB each)

- Divide the Rice Krispies, marshmallows, and butter / margarine into 3 equal sets (2 c. of Rice Krispies, around 2 c. marshmallows, 1 TB butter / margarine).
- Melt the marshmallows and butter in a pot over the stove (medium to low heat) until completely melted. Keep 3 sets separate.
