Happy almost 4th of July. What better way to celebrate the fourth than with some gooey, delicious rice krispie treats. Here is my inspiration pin: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sweetheartcupcake/5902982478/in/photostream, just the picture, no how to.
Obviously everyone knows how to make rice krispie treats, but in case you don’t, here is the recipe:
- 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows
- – OR –
- 4 cups miniature marshmallows
- 6 cups Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® cereal
I doubled mine so it looked like this:
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 2 packages regular marshmallows or 8 cups mini marshmallows
- 12 cups Rice Krispies
Then I cut it into thirds to make the layers, like so:
- 2 tablespoons butter
- About 7 cups
- 4 cups cereal
I added a GENEROUS amount of food coloring because I didn’t want to end up with pink, white, and teal rice krispies.
I started with the red layer, followed by the white, and the blue:
I let them cool in the fridge for a couple hours, cut, removed from the pan and VIOLA!!:
And darn if one wouldn’t fit on the plate so I had to eat it. Ok two! Have a safe 4th of July my friends.
