Happy 4th of July weekend! How are you spending this lovely weekend? We are spending it celebrating the July birthdays at my parents house! I love this time of year because in addition to the July 4th holiday we celebrate my husbands birthday, my dads birthday, my cousins birthday, and my birthday!
Since the 4th of July is tomorrow the Sunday Supper Movement is sharing easy to make patriotic recipes to get you ready for your cookouts and picnics! I had so many ideas on what to share today but since I was busy baking birthday cakes and pies I went for something super easy.
Today I'm sharing Red, White, and Blue Rice Krispies Treats! These are so easy, only require 3 ingredients, and you can have them made and ready to eat in under 20 minutes. They are the perfect dessert to take with you to your July 4th parties!
All you need to do is make 3 separate batches of Rice Krispies Treats. Then you color one red, one blue, and leave the third white. I use AmeriColor gel paste because you only need a drop to get the color you are looking for. I find with other food coloring it takes a whole bottle of red to actually get things to look red.
So once you make the batches you layer the blue Rice Krispies on the bottom and refrigerate for 5 minutes. Then layer on the white and refrigerate for 5 minutes. Finally top with the red and refrigerate for 5 minutes. That's it!
After you are finished cut into squares or use a star cookie cutter to make shapes. It's such an easy recipe but they look really cute. Everyone will have fun eating these during your 4th of July celebration.
