gluten-free-halloween-rice-krispiesNow that there are Gluten Free Rice Krispies available at the main stream grocery store, my family will be making these classic treats for many occasions.  The kids LOVE helping to make these sweet treats and they couldn’t be any easier.  4 ingredients and you are done.

5 Tablespoons butter or non-dairy butter (we use Earth Balance Buttery Sticks)
1 bag of 40 marshmallows
7 cups of Gluten Free Rice Krispies by Kelloggs
Icing or Frosting for decorating

In a large pot melt the butter over medium heat.  Add the marshmallows and stir until melted.

Slowly add the cereal and stir until combined.  Transfer to a spray-oiled 9×13 pan.  Press into the pan.  Allow to cool and then cut into pieces.  Decorate if desired.

    I have had celiacs disease my whole life. Rice Krispie cereal has always been gluten free. I know this because it was one of the very few cereals I could eat. It is made from rice, which has nothing to do with gluten. Sorry, but as someone who has dealt with this lifestyle my whole life, I get kind of frustrated when stores and manufacturers come out left and right and start labeling things gluten free. The Bigger problem is that people dont even know what gluten really is. Many products now have been labled “gluten free” that have always been, naturally. You just have to read the lables, and know what it is you are really looking for. Sorry for the Rant, but I see this all the time. Rice Krispie treats are awesome, and have always been gluten free!
