Rice Krispy Treats are almost as American as Apple Pie.
I remember my mom making them in a big pot and letting us use spoons to scoop out what got left behind. I do that as a mom and my kiddos, regardless of their ages, still fight over the bits and pieces left behind. So time to make some for the 4th of July holiday, but let's make them festive!
As good as the original! I just added some freeze dried strawberries and blueberries so that my rice krispy treats are "wearing" red, white and blue.
Here's what you need
You will need 3 Tbsps butter, 6 cups of rice krispy cereal, 1 10 oz package of miniature marhsmallows, 1 package of freeze dried strawberries and 1 package of freeze dried blueberries.
Melt the butter over low heat. Once melted, add the marshmallows and stir until melted.
Remove from heat and add the cereal and the freeze dried fruit. Stir until well mixed.
Press the mixture evenly into 2 buttered bread pans. Cool and cut.
I love how the freeze dried strawberries and blueberries add a fruity flavor to the rice krispy treat.
Also lovin' the red, white and blue color going on...totally festive!
What a great, quick dessert to add to your celebration!
