4th of July Star Rice Krispies Treats Recipe Ingredients

Gather all of your ingredients listed below. You can use any holiday sprinkles you have on hand! 

4th of July Star Rice Krispies Treats Recipe Melting Pot Almond bark

If you are using a Melting Pot to melt your almond bark, start melting it now so it’s ready to use when you are. 

In a large microwaveable bowl, melt the butter. Start with 15 second increments so that it doesn’t pop in the microwave and make a mess. 

Stir in the marshmallows (all but 1 cup) and then melt in the microwave in 45 second increments, stirring between. You want your marshmallows completely melted. I like to spray my spatula with cooking spray so the marshmallows don’t stick. 

Add in the remaining marshmallows. They will melt a little, but not completely. 

Slowly fold in toasted rice cereal until combined. This is a great time to add the holiday sprinkles to your krispie treat mixture.
