{food} 4th of July Fabulous Flag Treats

Have a party to go to where you need to bring a festive treat? These are gorgeous and fitting for a fun summer holiday. Originally posted on Two Hearts Together, here is the creative snack idea:

Look at these fabo red white and blue rice krispie treats using the original household favorite cereal! The trick to getting smooth bright colors for the flag is using tangy Airheads perfect for adults and kiddos!

4th of July Fabulous Flag Treats recipes



* Crispy rice treats
* Airheads Cherry bars
* Airheads White Mystery bars
* Airheads Blue Raspberry bars
* Small kitchen knife or scissors
* Small star-shaped cookie cutter (optional)


1. Cut crispy rice treats into rectangles
2. Cut part of an Airheads® Blue Raspberry bar to make the upper blue corner of the flag.
3. Cut alternating strips of Airheads® Cherry and White Mystery to make the flag’s stripes. Arrange pieces on crispy rice treat. Trim to fit.
4. Using either a star-shaped cookie cutter, or by hand, cut out a star shape from an Airheads® White Mystery bar. Place star on the blue square.
5. Pack into kids lunchboxes or keep them for a great snack at home.

Tip: If Airheads are hard to cut, take them out of their wrappers and place them on a microwave-safe plate. Warm them slightly in the microwave on Low for 10 seconds.


  1. Wow. Those look really good too! My son loves the rice crispy treat bars. I may have to try this one. Thank you!

  2. Did you make the treats? How were they!? I was away for the holiday, so I did not have a chance to make them, but I am going to for sure at some point.
