Rice Krispie treats are so simple to make & they go fast. I wanted to dress them up for the 4th of July, so I decided to do a red, white & blue icing drizzle. They turned out so pretty. I was planning on cutting these into star shapes, but couldn't find my cookie cutter. I'll post a new picture if I find it between now & Saturday.
Find the recipe for Rice Krispie treats here.
1 cup confectioner's sugar
2 teaspoons milk
2 teaspoons corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
Red & Blue food coloring
Stir sugar and milk together in a bowl until icing mixture is smooth; beat in corn syrup and vanilla until icing mixture is smooth and glossy in appearance. Divide into 3 equal amounts, add red & blue food coloring to desired shades. Drizzle alternately over prepared treats.
Coming up on Friday - I'll share the recipe for a delicious cinnamon walnut coffee cake. It's perfect for breakfast or dessert.
And on Saturday - oh my goodness, wait until you see this perfect warm-weather dessert. I can't wait to share this recipe.
