These Red White & Blue Rice Krispie Treats are a perfect dessert for the 4th of July or Memorial Day! Easy, with a classic flavor everyone knows and loves. Top them with patriotic sprinkles for the perfect finish. They're festive, fast, and always a crowd-pleaser!


12 Cups Mini Marshmallows

9 Cups Rice Cereal

9 Tablespoons Butter

Red Food Dye

Blue Food Dye

Patriotic Sprinkles

Nonstick Cooking Spray


  1. Spray a 9x13 pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Place 4 cups of marshmallows and 3 tablespoons of butter in a large mixing bowl. Microwave for about 1 minute and 30 seconds or until the marshmallows are smooth when stirred and the butter has melted.
  3. Add a bit of the red food coloring using a spoon or toothpick. Quickly stir until no color streaks appear. If it’s not red enough, add a bit more until the correct shade is reached.
  4. Add 3 cups of the cereal to the bowl and mix until the cereal is fully coated.
  5. Add the mixture to the greased pan and spread even until it makes a nice even layer, covering the entire bottom of the pan.
  6. Repeat steps 2-5 for the white layer, but skip adding any coloring to it.
  7. Repeat steps 2-5 for the blue layer, but only add about 2 drops of the food coloring to start. It gets bright quickly. If you need more, you can add it, but don’t start with more than 2 drops.
  8. Sprinkle as many patriotic sprinkles over the top as you like, and lightly press down on the sprinkles so they stick to the top of the treats well.
  9. Cover and let sit for about 4 hours or until dry. Cut into squares and enjoy!
