GF crispy rice treats!
What is the best quick and easy dessert ever? Rice crispy treats!!! The ones pictures above are ones I made for easter this year. I molded them into little easter eggs with pastel M&Ms. A big mistake for the gluten intolerant? Eating regular Rice Crispies cereal! It's sweetened with barley malt, so it's definitely not gluten free. However, the company announced earlier this year that their cereal will be gluten free by the summer of 2012, yay, success! Until then I'll be sticking with Nature's Path Koala Crisp cereal or other gluten free brown rice cereal.
1 box of Koala or other rice cereal, 11.5 oz
4 T butter
1 bag of mini marshmallows
mix-ins if desired- chopped reeses cups, heath, m&ms...
Melt butter in a large pot on medium heat. Once melted, add the whole bag of marshmallows and stir until melted. Remove from heat and stir in the box of cereal until evenly mixed. Into a regular sized casserole dish, pour the cereal mixture. Wear a disposable glove on one hand, spray that gloved hand with nonstick spray, and evenly pat down the cereal into the dish. So easy and so delicious!
