Have your fill of BBQ and booze during the day. But it’s when the sun goes down the celebration really begins. The fourth is really about the fireworks, anyway….right?
Light up your party with this twist on a traditional treat.
Snap, Crackle, POP! treats (Firecracker Rice Krispy Treats)
3 tbsp butter
1 bag of Marshmallows
6 cups crisp rice cereal
3 Firecracker bars
Grease a 9x13 baking dish
Chop the Firecracker bars into bite size pieces
In a large bowl, melt the butter on high for 40 seconds in the microwave, or until melted.
Add in marshmallows, coat with melted butter. Place in microwave for 1:30, or until marshmallows are all melted.
Add rice cereal to marshmallow and butter mixture and stir until cereal is coated. Add ¾ of chopped chocolate into the bowl and stir until chocolate is evenly distributed.
Spoon the mixture into a 9x13 baking dish, with your fingers spread the mixture out evenly.
Sprinkle the remaining chocolate on top of the rice krispies and press down gently.
Let cool for at least an hour for marshmallows to set.
Cut, serve and enjoy
