Easy Rice Krispies Treats for July 4th

These easy Rice Krispies treats are so fun to make for fourth of July.  There is a happy medium for me between spending hours baking goodies from scratch and buying everything already premade.   It’s like I want cute and tasty desserts that match the theme of holidays and parties, and look homemade, but without all the work.  So, I like to make easy no bake desserts.  That’s how I roll!

By changing the color of the straws, chocolate or sprinkles, you can make this easy rice krispies treat for any holiday or party! Or make them for little ones, just because.  The paper straws won’t let little hands get sticky!

Heres what you need:

  • Rice Krispies treats
  • White chocolate melts
  • Patterned paper straws
  • Assorted Sprinkles

You can make your own rice Krispies treats, or if you are in a hurry, buy them already made!

First, cut the paper straws in half.   Next, insert the straw at least an inch into the Rice Krispies treat as shown.

Melt the chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds.  It usually melts in one minute. You can add food coloring if you want the icing to be colorful.  Place the rice crispy side down into the melted chocolate.  Cover all sides in chocolate about an inch or two up. Two chocolate squares covered 8 rice crispies.

While the chocolate is still melted, cover with sprinkles.  I usually pour the sprinkles over a paper plate, so I can fold the plate and pour the extra sprinkles back onto rice krispies.  Don’t forget to cover the bottom in sprinkles, so it won’t stick to the plate. Allow the chocolate to harden. It usually takes less than 5 minutes.

I love easy recipes that my kids can make without creating a big mess. This is so quick to make & cleanup.

Rice krispies treats are one of my daughter’s favorite desserts to eat and make. She loved this spin on the easy rice krispies treats, because sprinkles always make it better! And it is so easy, kids can do it!
