Firecracker Rice Krispies Treats


Snap, crackle, pop, creamy, marshmallowy, red, white, blue. If you can't find 4th of July Rice Krispies, use regular Rice Krispies and add in a handful of red and blue sprinkles.


 

Bowl #1

15 ounces or about one standard-sized box of 4th of July Rice Krispies (or regular with the addition of sprinkles)

5 ounces or 1/2 bag of mini marshmallows

2 packets of Pop Rocks

In a saucepan:

1 1/2 sticks of butter

15 ounces or about 1 1/2 bags of mini marshmallows

1 tablespoon of vanilla extract

Tiniest pinch of salt


 

1

Prepare a 9x13 inch pan by generously spraying with non-stick spray. It also helps to spray your spatula or wooden spoon with non-stick spray.


2

Toss together the cereal and marshmallows in the first bowl.


3

Over medium low heat, melt together the butter, marshmallows, vanilla, and salt. Keep stirring and cooking until the mix is completely smooth and melty.


4

Pour the melted marshmallows over the bowl of cereal and mix until thoroughly combined.


5

Pour the cereal + marshmallow mixture into the pan and use your spatula to press the treats evenly across the pan. It's helpful to tear off a piece of parchment paper the same size as the pan and place directly on top of the treats. Press down lightly across the top to evenly spread.


6

Let cool for a few hours at room temperature or speed up the setting by place in the fridge for an hour.
