Tips to Make these Patriotic Rice Krispies

  • You don’t have to start with pre-made treats, but frankly, getting them into nice, clean squares is a pain so if the kids are making these, I recommend the pre-made ones.
  • Put the sprinkles on while the candy is still wet. If you wait too long, they won’t stick.
