Gluten-Free Rice Krispie Treats

I have had a major craving for Rice Krispies lately. No idea why. Technically they are just puffed rice so I was surprised when I realized the normal box is not gluten free. Naturally I went online and discovered they do make a GF version. So when I got them in the mail a few weeks ago I was so excited to try them!

Unfortunately for some reason when Kellogg decided to make a gluten-free Rice Krispie Cereal they went with puffed brown rice. This led to a substandard gluten-full cereal replacement that combined with soy milk was so unappealing I dumped them down the sink and thanked goodness that we have a garbage disposal. I have yet to try them with cow's milk but I think they might be less yucky.

Marshmallow-y Goodness

Anyway, I really wanted to try to turn the cereal into something edible, preferably sweet, because I had four boxes full of them! On the back of the box there is the requisite recipe for Rice Krispie Treats. The wonderful news is that the gluten-free cereal makes fabulous Rice Krispie Treats! There is no weird after taste from the brown rice!

Gluten-Free Rice Krispies

4 cups of mini marshmallows or 40 regular sized ones
3 tablespoons of butter
6 cups of gluten-free rice krispies

Melt the butter and add the marshmallows. 
Melt the marshmallows and remove from heat.
Add the cereal and stir until all the cereal is coated.
Press the cereal mixture into a lightly buttered bar pan with a buttered spatula or wax paper.
Cut and enjoy!
