Directions for Firecracker Rice Krispie Treats:

Once the butter is melted, then add the marshmallows to the pan and stir slowly until melted, keeping the heat on low. Melting the butter and marshmallow slowly is the SECRET to perfect Rice Krispies treats! When you melt the butter and marshmallow slowly it makes a perfectly soft delicious treat, but if you try to rush it… think microwave or high heat you will end up having hard Firecracker Rice Krispie treats, and no one wants that!

Once the marshmallows are melted, add the cereal and stir until thoroughly combined.

Next, press the firecracker Rice Krispie treats into a greased 9×13 pan. The firecracker rice Krispie treats will be sticky. A great way to manage the stickiness is to either butter a spatula or spray it with cooking spray to combat the stickiness. By doing this it makes it so much easier to work with!

After you have smoothed your Rice Krispies into the 9×13 pan then you will melt your white chocolate.

On low power, melt the white chocolate in 15-second intervals. Stir carefully between each interval and continue until chocolate is completely melted.

Gently drizzle the white chocolate evenly over the Rice Krispies. You can use as little or as much chocolate as you desire. For me, I love white chocolate so I am very generous with the drizzle.

 

Then gently pour both packages of Pop Rocks evenly over the chocolate. Again, use as few or as many Pop Rocks as you desire and like.

Next, it is time for your red, white, and blue sprinkles because it’s not a Rice Krispie treat in our home without sprinkles!
