Red White and Blue Rolo Candy Treats
These tasty treats are easy enough for the kids to help make them and the clean up is a breeze. Just use some parchment paper on your baking sheet. Then all you have to do at the end is toss the parchment paper out and the Rolo wrappers and you're DONE with the clean up.
Any desert with no clean up is an A+ in my book! Not to mention, the kids have hands on in the kitchen and they will have so much fun.
Throw these Red White and Blue Rolo Candy Treats in your picnic basket and take them to the park or make a bunch for the 4th of July while watching the fireworks go off with your family and friends, take them to the beach for a hand held snack, bring them or make them for parties. The possibilities are endless with this recipe.
Another great idea is to put these Red White and Blue Rolo Candy Treats into mini tins and give them as festive gifts for teachers, family and friends. Especially when the kids are helping make them, they really enjoy it because this is one of those treats that they can make with very little adult supervision, and they love to show off their culinary skills.
I was so happy with the Flag Rice Krispie Treats Recipe that I shared with you all earlier this week – I mean, it came out really cute and did well with you guys, my sweet readers!

I am always seeking quick and EASY dessert recipes when I have any one over.

This treat is not only delicious, its sweet, salty and savory, but you can put it in little cups and do this for any celebration, 4th of July, Birthdays, Labor Day or heck, any day. And I don't know about you, but Rolo Candy always reminds me of going to the movies as a kid. We used to throw them into the popcorn sometimes and have that sweet and salty treat, while watching our favorite movies. This reminds me so much of them.
The salty goodness of the pretzels (the square ones work best because they are hearty and will give you just enough room to add the Rolo Candy and the M&M's), mixed with the sweetness of the Red, White and Blue Chocolate candy on top of melted chocolate gooey Rolos. I swear this recipe makes me want to stand up and sing the Star Spangled Banner right here in my living room!
