Firecracker Rice Krispie Treats

Celebrate the Fourth of July this year with this super simple Fourth of July recipe that is sure to please, Firecracker Rice Krisie Treats!
Course: Dessert
Servings: 12


  • 3 TBS Butter
  • 1 10 Ounce Mini Marshmallows
  • 6 Cups Rice Krispies Cereal
  • 1 Cup White Melting Chocolate
  • 1 Pkg Red Pop Rocks candies
  • 1 Pkg Blue Pop Rocks candies
  • 4th of July Sprinkles


  • In a large pan, melt the butter over low heat.
  • Once the butter is melted, then add the marshmallows to the pan and stir slowly until melted, keeping heat on low. Melting the butter and marshmallow slowly is the SECRET to perfect rice krispie 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 krispies into a greased 9x13 pan. The firecracker rice krispies 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 9x13 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 genious with the drizzle.
  • Then gently pour both packages of poprocks evenly over the chocolate. Again, use as little or as much poprocks 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!
  • If you are in a hurry to eat (or cut) this easy fourth of july recipe, you can pop them in the fridge for a few minutes to harden the chocolate, but don’t leave them in there for too long!
