I thought this would be a fun easy way to celebrate the 4th of July. I love rice krispie treats and I feel like they are so easy and perfect for barbecues or large get togethers. I’ve altered the recipe from the normal rice krispie treats because I really don’t feel like it calls for enough marshmallows. Plus I hate when you make rice krispie treats and the next day they are hard as a rock. So in this recipe there is a little extra butter and marshmallows and I add karo syrup to keep the treats from hardening. They still will if you don’t put into an air tight container, but it will take a couple of days for them to harden instead of a couple of hours. Not to mention all the extras make these treats so gooey and yummy!! Then I just piped some white chocolate and chocolate with peanut butter over the top to dress things up. You can also use cookie cutters to cut your treats into shapes. Enjoy!
- 4 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 2 tablespoons light karo syrup
- 1 (10 ounces) package plus 1 cup regular marshmallows (mini marshmallows are the best)
- 6 cups Rice Krispies
- red, white, and blue chocolate wafers, or 6 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips with 1/2 tablespoon peanut butter
Pipe over cooled rice krispies treats. For instructions on how to pipe chocolate easily click here. I like to cut the sheet of treats before I pipe the chocolate, just to make it easier, but either way works. Store in air tight container.
