Hello! Boy oh Boy do I have a great (and super fast) recipe for you today! Red, White and Blue rice Krispy treats! the 4th of July (if you live in America) is just a eek away, so whether your BBQing, heading to see some fireworks or just taking the holiday easy, this recipe is a perfect way to get your ‘murica on.
Super fast, I whipped these baby up in about 15 minutes, and once set (about another 15minutes) you can dig right in! I got the red & blue rice Krispy cereal from my local target (on sale too!) but you can get them at and regular grocery store, or online!
Of course, I added in some extra marshmallows (duh…) and sprinkles from sweetapolita.com but you can use whatever you happen to have on hand to decorate these cuties — red, white and blue icing would look so good on the tops of thee stars! I also used a standard star cookie cutter to cut out my star shapes, but squares or any other shape that you like works too!
I hope you enjoy these little treats and comment down below what you’ll be whipping up for the 4th of July!
See ya next time,
Red, White and Blue Rice Krispy Treats

In a large heavy pot, melt butter over low heat. Add the bag of regular marshmallows and allow to melt, stirring occasionally.
Turn off the heat, and using a rubber spatula, stir in rice Krispy cereal. Mix until combined. Add 1/2 the bag of mini marshmallows and stir.
Turn out into a lightly oiled 13x9 baking pan and using your fingers, press into all four corners of the pan. Top with desired sprinkles.
