A post on the “I Can’t Eat That” Group on Ravelry asked what you miss the most since you found out you can’t eat whatever it is that you can’t eat. Well, for me, one thing I really miss is Rice Crispy Treats. I can’t eat Rice Crispies because that have that pesky barley malt in it, and as we all know, barley malt contains GLUTEN. Rice anything should not have that additive in it, so we who are gluten intolerant can eat it without fear.
Anyway, after I read that post, I got to thinking, “Hey! I have a box of the newly gluten free Rice Chex, AND I have a bag of marshmallows!” I can make Rice Chex Treats. And you know what? They taste pretty dang good.
Rice Chex Treats
8 cups Rice Chex
1 bag marshmallows
1/3 cup butter or margarine
Butter or spray with olive oil a 13″ X 9″ casserole dish. Crush up the Rice Chex a little bit so that you have 6 cups of crushed cereal from the 8 cups you started with. Melt the butter or margarine on low heat in a large non-stick pot. Add the marshmallows and stir constantly until they are completely melted. Add the cereal to the melted marshmallows and stir until all the cereal is coated. Using a buttered or oiled spatula or waxed paper, spread the mix into the casserole dish. Eat and enjoy! mmmmmmm
