Rice Crispy Treats for Fourth of July

I made rice crispy treats with my daughters for the fourth of July.  We forgot to add the food coloring to the melted marshmallows, so we had to improvise and add them when we were mixing in the rice crispies.  They still turned out alright and we had fun!

12 oz rice crispy cereal
10 oz marshmallow
1/3 cup butter
blue and red food coloring

1. In medium heat, mMelt the butter in a big pot
2. Add the marshmallow to the butter and stir until all melted, then remove from the stove
3. Add the blue and red food coloring and swirl into the melted marshmallow, but don't overmix
4. Add the rice crispies into the melted marshmallow and stir
5. Line baking pan with plastic wrap and mold the rice crispies into the pan
6. Use more plastic wrap to pat down and mold the rice crispies into the pan
7. Let cool before slicing into squares

Pana Cotta with Berries

I made these Pana Cottas for a prayer that my parents held in their home.  These are simple pana cottas with fresh raspberries and blueberries lightly drizzled with apricot syrup.  The pana cottas are not very sweet and these are best served when chilled.  They are refreshing deserts on warm summer days.  I will have a video on how to make these very soon.
