Chocolatey Peanut-Butter Crispy Rice Treats (Gluten-Free)

Ingredients:

  • 3 Tablespoons butter or butter substitute
  • 1 (10 oz) bag gluten-free marshmallows
  • 1/2 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla extract
  • 1/5 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free peanut butter
  • 5 cups gluten free crispy rice cereal
  • 1 cup gluten-free chocolate chips (optional)
  1. Grease an 8×8 square glass pan.
  2. Melt the butter in a large pan or dutch oven over low heat. Add the marshmallows, vanilla, salt and peanut butter, stirring constantly until melted and smooth; this takes several minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and add cereal, stirring until well mixed. Scrape the mixture into the prepared pan and press it into the pan with a greased spatula (or you can place a piece of waxed paper over it and press down).
  4. If you want to add a chocolate coating on top of your crispy rice treats, place chocolate chips in small, microwave-safe bowl and heat in 30 second intervals until melted; stirring as needed.
  5. Spread melted chocolate over the bars and allow to set completely, about 2 hours at room temperature ( you can also place them in the refrigerator or freezer to speed up this process).
  6. Cut bars into squares and serve.

Sounds great! Would like to know, though, calories per serving and breakdown of carbohydrates, fat, etc.

Hi Allan,

There are a variety of gluten-free rice cereal substitutes, so you will have to find one that works for you. I use the Enjoy Life Foods crunchy rice, but Rice Chex is gluten-free, and makes a great substitute, and I believe Barbara's makes a rice cereal free of gluten ingredients also.

I also would like a carb breakdown if possible, as our son has celiac disease and diabetes.
