Fourth of July Rice Krispie Treats

How was your 4th of July weekend? We headed up to a lake with friends up in the Sierras that was so charming (some photos here on instagram). Fourth of July is one of my very favorite holidays, falling 3rd in line after Christmas and Halloween. Not only are red, white, and blue my favorite colors but everything about the 4th is quintessential American summer, which is just the best of everything. Today I wanted to share with you these fun rice krispie skewers we made. They’re so simple to make and really festive.

Here’s how to make these Fourth of July rice krispie sticks…


1. Following the package directions on the bag of marshmallows, mix your butter and marshmallows together until smooth. Add in red food coloring (about 3-4 drops) and then mix in the rice krispies until well combined.


2. Pour into square ice cube molds (you could use regular ice cube molds too in a pinch) and press firmly.

3. Repeat with the color blue and also with the natural rice krispie flavor (no food coloring). You can also stick a skewer in each as they harden if you’re worrying about them getting too hard to stick it in afterwards.


4. When they’re cool, pop out one red, one white, and one blue and stick a skewer through them.

5. Serve with your personalized chilled Share-a-Coke drinks. With Share-a-Coke you can personalize these iconic eight ounce glass bottles with the names of your friends and family who are coming to celebrate the fourth with you. Such a great personal touch to your party and Coke’s fit in perfectly with a fourth of July spread.

These are so stinkin’ cute! What a brilliant idea – definitely keeping in mind for future shindigs.
