Make these delicious Fourth of July Rice Krispie Treats for your next Patriotic gathering.
The perfect kid-friendly recipe.
I live for Rice Krispie Treats and I love to personalize them any way I can. These are the perfect addition to any patriotic get-together and combine the Red, White and Blue seasonal Rice Krispies with the patriotic M&M’s. They’re not too sweet and that’s why I love them. Begin with melting your stick of salted butter and a 10 oz. bag of marshmallows in a deep pan. Once they are melted together, turn off the heat and add your cereal. Stir well to combine it all. On a sheet pan, spray it with some non-stick spray and pour your package of red, white and blue M&M’s and spread them out evenly. Once your cereal is combined with the marshmallows and butter, pour it over the top of your M&M’s. I like to take either wet hands to press it down or place a piece of parchment paper over the mixture and use a measuring cup to press it down. Allow our mixture to set until it is cool. Turn it over onto a sheet of parchment paper and cut it up into squares and serve. They’re so fun, especially for the Fourth of July. Leave a comment and let me know if you’ve tried this recipe yourself and what other combinations you’d like to see. Thanks so much for following along and have an awesome Summer season. Have fun making these Patriotic Fourth of July Rice Krispie Treats!

I love using foil iron-on and Cricut by far makes some of my favorite iron-on vinyl. We’re fortunate enough that my kids get to celebrate two cultures. Fireworks play a huge role in their American heritage and their Tongan heritage. For this post, since we’re here in Utah, I’ll be making a DIY Patriotic Shirt and sharing with you the Cricut Explore cut file.
The foil iron-on is just as easy to use as the standard iron-on but it is a little thicker so you have to use your custom settings on your Smart Set Dial. It will be available in the drop-down menu where you select your custom material and use the Neon Iron-On setting. Be sure you remember to mirror your image or you’ll hate yourself for wearing a backwards shirt ;).
You’ll want to follow this method for using Iron-On, warm up your shirt first with the iron and then place the Iron-On where you desire. This starts the bond almost immediately and you won’t get lifts that are almost always problematic if you’re not used to this material. Make sure your iron is set on medium heat with no steam and be sure to allow it to cool for a few minutes before peeling off the carrier sheet.
The shirt is going to be the background color so that is why I chose a white shirt. I laid my red iron-on first and let it hand under the heat for about 10 seconds using a lot of pressure. Peel up the plastic and then do your blue iron-on, making sure I didn’t touch the hot iron to the red foil. You will now match up the silver to form the USA. I have already sliced your image so it’s set to go and you don’t have to worry about any of the designing.Once all your foil is on the front of the shirt, turn it inside-out and press really well on the back to ensure a tight seal of the foil. When you care for your shirts, wash them inside out on gentle.
Now enjoy the DIY Patriotic Shirt and party the night away. Happy Independence Day!!This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.
