The 4th of July is coming up and I am trying to be especially festive so I came up with this version for a red, white and blue dessert with these Triple Decker Rice Krispy Treats.
The recipe is simple. Butter, marshmallows, rice krispy cereal and food coloring. Just make a batch for each color and voila – you will have a yummy and festive treat!
I hope you try these and have a fun, happy and safe 4th of July!
