Patriotic Rice Krispie Treats Recipe

Our Patriotic Rice Krispie Treats Recipe will get you and the kiddos in the mood for yummy summer-time treats! We love them all year round actually and today, we’re dressing them up a little patriotic for summer.  They’ll be a hit at all the kid-friendly parties we will be attending this year! Everyone loves our recipe because our rice krispie treats are made in the microwave and they STAY SOFT! Rice Krispies, marshmallows, and a dab of butter in a microwave safe bowl and you are on your way! The kiddos love to help or maybe they can even make them on their own too since there’s no stove involved it’s really awesome!

Patriotic Rice Krispie Treats + Summer = Happiness! 

I’m SO crazy excited that summer is FINALLY here… Yee-haw!!   Can y’all believe it? Did you know that Rice Krispie Treats can be made in the microwave?  They’re so simple to make that way and since there’s no stove necessary the kids can help too. I found my cute star sprinkles at the local grocery store bakery… they will sell them by weight if you ask and they usually have super cute ones too.
