Five minute rice krispee treats + styled by The Bella Bean for the Fourth.

A festive treat brings together all you need to celebrate a holiday. Can you recall a favorite snack/treat or dessert that you loved during childhood? The one you remember meant it was Summer and time spent outdoors under the sun making lots of memories. That is how I feel about rice krispee treats, the gooey marshmallow, crunch and can't have just one feeling. My mom would make them all the time, extra marshmallowy and for any special occasion, just change the shape and sprinkles and it could be made for any celebration or holiday. It's the super easy recipe for you and your children to make together, but be prepared for sticky fingers.
