Gluten free chocolate, peanut butter Rice Krispie treats

_MG_5631c

I’ve been trying the gluten-free thing the last few days (bit of a challenge!), so I decided to try my hand at making some gluten free Rice Krispie treats (though, to be totally honest, I didn’t actually use Rice Krispies). Apparently, Kellogg does make GF Rice Krispies, but I was unable to find any at my local Albertson’s or Whole Foods. So I used Nature’s Path Organic Envirokidz Chocolate Koala Crisp (man, what a mouthful — there’s a picture below), GF marshmallows, butter and GF peanut butter. These are almost organic, but not quite. (The butter and peanut butter were plain old, plain old.)

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 Tbsp. butter
  • 4-5 cups mini GF marshmallows
  • 6-7 cups GF chocolate rice crisps
  • 2 big spoonfuls of GF peanut butter

Directions

  1. Melt the butter on low heat, stirring.
  2. Put in all of the marshmallows, and continue to stir until they are all melted.
  3. Turn off the stove (remove from heat).
  4. Add two (or three… or four…) heaping spoonfuls of peanut butter, and stir until the peanut butter has melted and is mixed in evenly with the marshmallows.
  5. Add the rice crisps immediately, and stir them into the mixture. (It might start to look like a sticky yet delicious disaster at this point, but keep going).
  6. Once everything is mixed up, dump the mixture into a lightly greased (I used a spray) 13×9″ pan. Push the stickiness around until it’s fairly well molded to the pan, about 1″ thick.
  7. Let sit for an hour or so, and then cut into tiny squares. I put a little too much grease on my pan, so I blotted the bottoms of my treats on paper towels before tupperware-ing them.

Now, let your pan soak for about a million years, and enjoy!
