"I made for our 4th of July celebration for all the kiddos, but was pleasantly surprised what a hit it was for all the adults. I had a 2" piece of Styrofoam that I wrapped with patriotic ribbon and I stuck the krispy stars in. Will definitely make again!"

"You can't go wrong with rice crispie treats! And these are just so cute. The candy coating and decorations are great and can be adapted for any occasion."
