Patriotic Rice Krispies Treat Pops

Growing up, Rice Krispie Treats were one of my all time favorite snacks. They were easy to make and fun to eat.

With the 4th of July just around the corner we took Rice Krispie Treats to the next level and turned them into a tri-colored POP!

Although they are not the “healthiest” treat around, I try allow my children an indulgence every once in a while.

To make them, you will need:

6 cups Rice Krispies Cereal

3 tbsp Butter

10.5 oz Marshmallows

Red Food Coloring

Blue Food Coloring

8-12 Popsicle Sticks

In a medium saucepan, melt 1 tbsp butter over low heat.

Add 1/3 of the marshmallows and stir until completely melted.

Stir in enough food coloring to make the marshmallows bright red. 

Remove from heat.

Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and lightly spray with non stick spray.

Add 1/3 of the Rice Krispies cereal and stir until cereal is well coated.

Butter a your hands or use wax paper to press the mixture firmly into the pan.

In a medium saucepan, melt another 1 tbsp butter over low heat.

Add another 1/3 of the marshmallows and stir until completely melted.

Remove from heat.

Add another 1/3 of the Rice Crispies cereal and stir until cereal is well coated.

Butter a your hands or use wax paper to press the mixture firmly into the pan.

 

In a medium saucepan, melt the last 1 tbsp butter over low heat.

Add 1/3 of the marshmallows and stir until completely melted.

Stir in enough food coloring to make the marshmallows bright blue. 

Remove from heat.

Add 1/3 of the Rice Crispies cereal and stir until cereal is well coated.

Butter a your hands or use wax paper to press the mixture firmly into the pan.
