Have a BBQ and still not sure what to bring? {I don’t call it procrastination, I call it anticipated adrenaline rush}. Try out these fun rice krispies treat! I absolutely cannot take credit for the idea. I stumbled upon it on Pinterest over the weekend.

Supplies are easy peasy: rice krispies cereal (6 cups), one 10 oz. bag of marshmallows, 3 tablespoons of butter and sprinkles.

Make rice krispies treats like you normally do (here’s a tutorial). Instead of pressing the mix into a 13″ X 9″ pan, use a 15″ by 10″ jelly roll pan. While the treats are still very warm, top with red, white and blue sprinkles. You’ll want to press them in with your fingers or back of the spoon.

Let the treats cool for about an hour. Then use a star-shaped cookie cutter to cut shapes. Transfer to platter.

(cool) tip: You’ll have extra rice krispies treat bits after you cut the star shapes. Bake hungry.
