You wouldn't think this treat would be trouble for us, but alas, it is. The Rice Krispies cereal that gave birth to the Rice Krispies Treat is in fact not gluten-free (malt, ugh). But no worries! Gluten-free rice Chex will do the trick, and these will be loved by the gluten-free AND the gluten-full!
What you need:
- 6 cups GF plain rice Chex
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 package mini marshmallows
- 1 tsp vanilla
- mix-ins if you want to get fancy (I used some candy corn for Halloween and white/dark chocolate chips for a dinner party)
Crunch up the Chex a bit, so they are closer in size to a piece of rice krispy cereal. Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Add marshmallows, melt. Stir in vanilla. Add the cereal gradually. I put in all six cups and they didn't come out quite as mushy and mallow-y as I would have liked, so I would say to use just under six cups. Get the cereal nice and coated and throw in some mix-ins if you so desire. Spread into a greased 9x13" pan. Let sit to cool, then cut and enjoy!
