We set our sights on the Fourth of July, where the stars and stripes will adorn every piece of home decor, clothing, and dish present at summer gatherings. When it comes to summer events in Texas, we beat the heat by the pool and break out the burgers. The scorching month of July is one where the heat of the grill is the equivalent of the sun, or so it feels that way to us in the Lone Star State.
What does the season of grills and outdoor gatherings mean? Potluck style lunches and dinners, galore. Everyone scrambles to find their best recipe featuring the colors of the Old Glory Sprinkle Mix, arranging them as perfect and precise as Betsy Ross sewing together those beautiful stars and stripes. Regular red, white, and blue sprinkles are neat, but this sprinkle mix also features the stars and bars with gold and silver metallic accents.
Now, I don’t know about y’all, but it is too dang hot for me to be in the kitchen baking when it’s 100+ degrees outside. I want to be the hero of dessert and have everyone sing my praises, but let’s be real here, that heat is no joke.
The bright side is, you can still win the dessert game and keep your cool with these Stars & Sprinkles Rice Krispie Cutouts featuring a fun mix of red, white, and blue sprinkles. BONUS: there’s even a way to prevent sticky fingers on kids and adults alike.
Five simple ingredients can make a fun snack that doesn’t have to stay in the fridge, and needs no dishes for individual serving. There is no better win-win than no dirty dishes at the end of dinner, trust me. Add in some red, white, and blue sprinkles and you have a fun, patriotic treat to share.
