Gluten Free Rice Krispies Treats

      When I first found out about my son’s multiple allergies and was searching for affordable snacks, I instantly was drawn to his favorite — Rice Krispies Treats.  I mean what could possibly go wrong? It was made of puffed rice anyway right?
       Oh well, after a few investigation (label reading that is), I realized that the ready made Rice Krispies Treats aren’t as safe as I thought it was. One big reason is that the packaged ones contain SOY. 

        So I decided to make the treats from scratch. With just 6 easy steps, I’m pretty sure the freshly made rice treats are definitely worth every bite.  This version with a little melted chocolate drizzle not only takes these humble bars to the next level, it also becomes a fun dessert even for grown ups.



3 Tbs. Earth Balance Soy Free Buttery Spread
1 10z package Marshmallows
7 cups Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Gluten Free Cereal
2 Tbs. Enjoy Life Semi Sweet Mini Chocolate Chips
1/2 tsp. canola oil
1. Line a 9x 13 pan with foil. Using a pastry brush, grease the foil with the canola oil.  Set aside.
2. In a big microwaveable bowl, combine marshmallows and buttery spread. Heat for 30-50 minutes on high until the marshmallows are very soft.
3. Stir in the rice krispies until well coated with the melted marshmallow mixture.
4. Transfer to prepared pan. Using a spatula, spread the mixture evenly.
5. In a another microwavable boil, melt the chocolate chips on high in 10 second intervals.  Make sure you don’t overheat or else the chocolate will be clumpy.
6. Drizzle on top of the rice krispies. Let it set for about 1 hour before cutting into bars. Enjoy!!!
