For Fourth of July or other patriotic parties, I want something that is “no fuss”. I don’t want to have to worry about slicing a cake, or whether my cupcakes are piped beautifully.
I want something that I don’t have to turn on my oven for, and that guests can just grab and go. This Rice Krispie recipe fits both of those criteria!
