Gluten-free Rice Crispy Treats

I was lamenting at a gluten-free event how I was sad Gluten-free Rice Krispies were no longer being sold in the USA.  The person looked at me like I had been living under a rock.  “ALDI’s Crispy Rice cereal is gluten-free” she said.

 

I went to ALDI that day!  At the time I did not shop at ALDI much.  The last time I had been there there was not much of a selection for my family.  The new gluten-free line of products is good, there is soy flour in the cookies which makes them a “No” for us.  The Crispy Rice Cereal however was a “Yes”!  So were the marshmallows!

Rice Crispy TreatsTo make the treats I followed the directions on the marshmallow bag, and used Earth Balances Soy-free spread in place of butter.

I also used a tricked learned from one of our favorite teachers.  Heat the marshmallows and butter in a glass (or your favorite Pyrex) bowl in the microwave.  I don’t use my microwave very often, but this is one of my reasons for loving them.  There are no after pictures because we ate them so fast.  Next time I will melt some dairy-free chocolate chips on top.  Yum.

I hope you enjoy this school time treat as much as we do.  SB
