Ingredients

  • 8 tablespoons butter unsalted
  • 2 packages (10 oz each) Jumbo marshmallows
  • 6 cups Miniature marshmallows
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 box rice Krispies cereal

Optional:

  • Blue gel food coloring
  • Red gel food coloring
  • 5 ounces red chocolate melts
  • 5 ounces blue chocolate melts
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • 2-3 tablespoons star sprinkles

Instructions

  1. In a large saucepan melt butter over low heat.
  2. Add the Jumbo marshmallows and stir until completely melted.
  3. Stir in Miniature marshmallows and remove from heat when the miniature marshmallows are not yet fully melted.
  4. Add the Rice Krispies cereal and stir until well coated.
  5. For Red, White and Blue Bars:
  6. Divide mixture into 3 large bowls.
  7. Add about 6 drops of blue gel food coloring to one bowl, and using a spatula mix into the rice kripsy treats mixture until fully combined and blue.
  8. Using a buttered spatula, press the blue rice krispy mixture in a 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray or layered with parchment paper. Layered with parchment paper is better, as it makes removal from pan much easier.
  9. Press the uncolored bowl of rice krispy mixture on top of the blue layer.
  10. Add about 6 drops of red gel food coloring to the remaining bowl, and using a spatula mix into the rice kripsy treats mixture until fully combined and red. If mixture starts to harden and is hard to work with, microwave for 1-2 minutes.
  11. Press the red bowl of rice krispy mixture on top of the white layer.
  12. Melt the red and blue candy melts in separate bowls per package instructions.
  13. Drizzle on top of the rice krispy treats.
  14. Top with white chocolate chips and start sprinkles.
  15. Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares.
  16. Best if served the same day.
