4th of July Rice Krispies

Happy Wednesday! I am so happy to be in my bed right now! I was up for a solid 20 hours yesterday! I woke up at 5:30 to go to work and then had a bible study and then a late night work party! It was such a fun day but I am happy to have little planned today. That is definitely the homebody speaking. :) 
I went today to my college orientation and I am so happy with the classes I am taking in the Fall and my schedule. I am sad that summer is coming to an end but I am SO excited to start chasing my dream of becoming a teacher!

Today I am sharing a cute and simple recipe for your 4th of July festivities. Rice Krispies are always my favorite dessert and you can mix in different candies or top with different frosting's to make them perfect for any occasion.

3 tbsp butter
1 package (10 oz,) mini marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal

For the Frosting:
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 to 2 tablespoons of milk
food coloring of choice

In a large pot on low heat, melt the butter. Add the mini marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Move the pot off of the heat and then stir in the cereal. Press into a pan and let cool.

For the Frosting:
In a standing electric mixer, beat the softened butter on low speed for 1-2 minutes. Slowly add the powdered sugar and then the vanilla extract. Stir to combine. Add in 1 tablespoon of milk and stir to combine. If the frosting needs to be thinner slowly add more milk. Separate into separate bowls to dye with food coloring of choice. Frost cooled rice krispies and enjoy!

There you go! Easy peasy! I hope you can recreate this treat and send my pictures!
