Molly and I were making Rice Krispie Treats for the campers today, and she decided that it would be a great idea to color them red, white, and blue in honor of the fourth of July. Since we couldn’t really doing anything else to celebrate on account of being in the kitchen all day, we decided that that was a great idea and set about making our patriotic dessert. The white stripe went off without a hitch, the red stripe was a tad pink, but workable. Then we started working on the blue stripe and I learned my new thing for the day.
Fun fact: blue food coloring + margarine + Rice Krispies = Easter-Grass Green.
The end result looked something like the Italian flag as imagined by the Easter Bunny.
So, yeah… it’s the thought that counts, right? Buon compleanno anyway, America.
