6. Patriotic Rice Krispies Treats Pops
Have you ever met a kid (or an adult) who doesn’t like Rice Krispies Treats? Doubt it. We love this classic treat, but we suggest you use a natural, plant-based food coloring such as Color Garden, which can be found at Whole Foods, and uses ingredients such as beet juice, grape juice and turmeric to achieve vibrant colors.
