Fourth of July Rice Krispies Treats


- 6 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
- 1 package marshmallows
- 3 TB butter
- Food coloring (red and blue)

  1. Divide Rice Krispies and marshmallows into three parts.
  2. Put one part of the marshmallows and 1 tablespoon of butter in the microwave for about a minute. Depending on your microwave it might take less than a minute to "melt" them. They should be super soft. Take a large enough bowl otherwise they will overflow.
  3. Remove from the microwave and mix in the blue food coloring first. Then add the cereal to the mixture. Once they are well mixed, put them in a greased tray. Flatten them using a piece of wax paper.
  4. Repeat step 2 and 3. Don't add any food coloring to the middle "white" layer.
  5. Once they layers are all on and pressed, let it set for about 10 minutes before cutting them.
The more food color you add, the brighter it will be. I obviously didn't add enough didn't like the idea of you girls eating too much food coloring. It just doesn't seem natural to eat red and blue treats! Yes, that's why they look like that.
