Looking for a Patriotic Dessert?
Hey everybody and Happy Memorial Day! I just wanted to do a quick post today to share this awesome Patriotic Rice Krispies Cake with y’all. It’s a super easy recipe. I brought it to a pool party yesterday and the kids really loved it! It’s perfect for a July 4th party too!
I shared a similar cake for Valentine’s Day cake in February. It was a Strawberry Rice Krispies Cake, so I used the same method to make this cake except I left out the strawberry Jello and changed the candy melt colors on top.
What is a Patriotic Rice Krispies Cake?
This is such a fun cake for a party and you can change it to fit any holiday. It’s simply a double recipe of Rice Krispie Treats poured into a greased Bundt pan. Then you press it down really well and let it cool completely. Invert the pan and decorate with red, white and blue candy melts, plus sprinkles.
How to Make a Patriotic Rice Krispies Cake
- Start by making a double recipe of rice krispy treats (recipe follows).
- Pour into a well greased Bundt pan. Then press it down really well and let it cool completely.
- Invert the pan on to a serving plate and voila, a perfectly shaped Bundt cake.
- Melt colored candy melts (red, white and blue) and pour into disposable piping bags. Cut a small corner of each bag and drizzle over the cake, alternating colors.
- Add your patriotic sprinkles to make it look even more all American.
How to serve your patriotic Rice Krispies Cake
Let the drizzled candy melts cool and set before slicing into this baby. You can stick it in the refrigerator to speed up the process, if needed.
Cutting this cake is easy. Just cut into it with a sharp knife as if you were cutting a regular Bundt cake which will give you a perfect portion of what is basically a dressed up Rice Krispies Treat.
Did I mention that it’s really tasty too!
If you’re a fan of Rice Krispie Treats, then you will most definitely love this Patritotic Rice Krispies Cake! It’s a great dessert for all ages, but especially the kiddos.

Happy Memorial Day!

Patriotic Rice Krispies Cake
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter (or one 4 oz stick)
- 8 cups mini marshmallows (or two 10 oz packages)
- 12 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 1/2 cup red candy melts
- 1/2 cup white candy melts
- 1/2 cup blue candy melts
- 3 tablespoons sprinkles
- Spray a Bundt pan generously with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
- Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add marshmallows. Stir until melted and completely combined. Add cereal and stir until it's combined with the marshmallow mixture. Quickly pour into the prepared pan. Press it down into pan with greased fingers or a greased spoon. Smooth top so it's level. Let cool about 1 hour.
- Invert cake onto a large plate. Melt red candy melts in a small microwave safe bowl with the microwave set on high for 30 seconds. Stir, then heat another 30 seconds (if needed). Stir until smooth. Pour into a disposable plastic pastry bag. Cut the tip of the bag to create a very small hole. Drizzle red candy melts over cake. Repeat process with remaining candy melts. Add sprinkles to the top right away before the candy melts set. Slice and serve. Store covered at room temperature for 24 hours or in the refrigerator for a few days.
