Red White & Blue Rice Krispie Treat Cheesecakes


If there are two things that I adore it’s a Rice Krispie treat and a slice of good cheesecake. There’s just something about the treats that send me back to my childhood and cheesecake? Well I think most women would agree with that one (or at least most of the ones that I know would). That’s why when I saw this recipe for these Red White & Blue Rice Krispie Treat Cheesecakes? I just KNEW that I had to try them! I mean why not combine 2 of my favorite desserts into one? Even better? They’re red, white and blue making them the perfect 4th of July treat!

 

Quick, easy and delicious, these Red White & Blue Rice Krispie Treat Cheesecakes are the perfect patriotic dessert! You'll wow at the BBQ with this one!

 

The cheesecake portion of these can be topped with anything that you want. I love strawberries so that’s what we used, but cherries, blueberries or even a dollop of peanut butter would taste just as amazing! Of course if you’re making these as a 4th of July dessert or a Memorial Day dessert, you’ll want to stick with a red colored fruit to complete the red, white and blue color theme. We like to make these as mini-cheesecakes, but they could also be done as a larger one if you needed.

Onto the Noms!
