Ingredients

  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 4 1/2 cup marshmallows
  • 3 3/4 cup Rice Krispies
  • 2-3 drops red, white, and blue food coloring

Instructions

Red Layer

  • Melt down 2 tbsp of butter over medium-high heat, then add in the 1 1/2 cup of marshmallows. Once the marshmallows melt down, add in a couple drops of red food coloring, then mix, until the mixture is completely red. Sprinkle in 1 1/4 cup of Rice Krispies, and fold in until everything is well incorporated. Butter a pan, and add in the red layer. Be sure to spread it throughout, and pack it down to prevent any air pockets.

White Layer

  • Melt down 2 tbsp of butter over medium-high heat, then add in the 1 1/2 cup of marshmallows. Melt down the marshmallows. Sprinkle in 1 1/4 cup of Rice Krispies, and fold in until everything is well incorporated. Add the white layer on top of the red layer. Be sure to spread it through out, and pack it down to prevent any air pockets.

Blue Layer

  • Melt down 2 tbsp of butter over medium-high heat, then add in the 1 1/2 cup of marshmallows. Once the marshmallows melt down, add in a couple drops of blue food coloring, then mix, until the mixture is completely blue. Sprinkle in 1 1/4 cup of Rice Krispies, and fold in until everything is well incorporated. Layer the blue on top of the white. Be sure to spread it through out, and pack it down to prevent any air pockets.
  • Let it cool down completely before cutting, and enjoy!
