    Red White and Blue Treats

    One of my family’s favorite desserts to make during the Summer is rice krispies! This red white and blue rice krispie treats recipe is a fun variation on the traditional version and will be a showstopper for your Memorial Day or 4th of July BBQs! I made these last year for a get together and all the kids (even adults) LOVED them! Adding the star sprinkles and red, white and blue M&M’s really takes them over the top…they are the perfect festive dessert!

    Red white and blue treats

    While these red white and blue rice krispy treats do take a little more time (and dishes) than your traditional rice krispie treats, they are so worth it! You could definitely still make these without adding any food coloring/ layers and just add the sprinkles and M&M’s on top. This is truly an amazing dessert dish that the crowd will remember and request year after year. I always enjoy making these red white and blue treats…so so fun!

    • 6 tbsp unsalted butter

    • 1/2 cup M&M's (optional)
    • red and blue food coloring

    Instructions

    • Butter a 9×13″ dish and set aside.
    • Place 2 Tablespoons butter and 4 cups of marshmallows in 3 separate microwavable bowls. Cook the first bowl for 1 minute and then stir. Cook an additional 15 seconds if needed and then stir in the blue food coloring. Once the mixture is smooth, stir in 3 cups of krispies until combined. Then press into the bottom of the dish. You can either butter your hands or use a piece of wax paper to push down the layers.
    • Repeat with the 2nd layer and red food coloring. Repeat for the top layer with no food coloring. Top immediately with sprinkles and M&M’s if desired. Cover with plastic wrap until ready to serve. Butter your knife (I find a plastic knife works best) and then cut into squares. Enjoy!
