4th of July Rice Krispie Treats

The 4th of July will be here before we know it. Soon we will be hearing fireworks going off and having BBQ parties. So, I was trying to think

So, I was trying to think of a fun treat that the kids would love. Since my son likes rice krispie treats, I decided to make some that were 4th of July themed.

These Rice Krispie Treats are star-shaped with sprinkles and some are drizzled with red, white, and blue candy melts.

My son loved them! He liked the shapes and the different colors. He studies each treat and debates on which color of rice krispie treat he is going to eat. It’s so cute!

I was able to get 12 stars out of this recipe. The number of stars you get from your recipe will depend on the size of your cookie cutter.

If you are planning to use these treats for a party or family picnic, you can place the stars on paper straws. They are a fun way to display the treats.

When I drizzle the candy melts, I used a sandwich bag. Place the melted candy melts inside, then cut a tiny hole in the corner of the bag. When you are done, just toss the bags. Easy cleanup.
