Spring Fling Day 2: Spring Rice Krispie Treats (Gluten Free!) from One Creative Mommy


Hi everyone!  Welcome back to our Spring Fling Series!  Today, we have a good friend of ours joining you.  We love Heidi's blog because it has so much to offer- crafts, delicious recipes, and some great educational tools for your kids.  Here she is:

Hi, everyone! I'm Heidi, from OneCreativeMommy.com, and I'm thrilled to be guest posting today on one of my very favorite crafty sites. Valerie and Laura are such great crafters! On my site, I share crafts, DIY projects, printables, and gluten free recipes. (One of my kiddos has Celiac disease, so I've been learning all about cooking gluten free.)

Today I'm sharing a quick and easy treat that is yummy with or without gluten.



Quick and Easy Spring Rice Krispie Treats with Chocolate Frosting {Easily Gluten Free}

Begin with the basic Rice Krispie Treat recipe. (I bet a many of you know it by heart!)

Ingredients:
  • 3 T butter or margarine
  • 4 cups mini or 40 large marshmallows
  • 6 cups *Kellogg's Rice Krispies Gluten Free Cereal (or any crispie rice cereal for non gluten free)
*If you do not need to eat gluten free, you may use any generic crispie rice cereal. For gluten free, you must use the Kellogg's brand Rice Krispies that say "Gluten Free" on the box. There are several different flavors. Only the brown rice version is gluten free, so be sure to check.

Hint--If you will be using a mold like I did, I suggest preparing only half of the recipe at a time. It gives you more time to mold the shapes before the marshmallows begin to harden. If you plan just to cut the treats into shapes, go ahead and make the full recipe.



Directions:

Melt the butter over low heat, and add the marshmallows. Stir until marshmallows are completely melted. Remove from heat and add rice krispies. Stir gently until completely blended.

Use a buttered spatula or wet fingers to transfer the mix to molds. (Clean, wet fingers work best for me, but be sure to let the mixture cool a little bit first.) Empty the molds onto waxed paper.

Pour mixture into a 9x12 baking dish, allow to cool, cut into shapes, and place the shapes on waxed paper.

Easy Chocolate Frosting

Quick and Easy Gluten Free Spring Rice Krispie Treats--Easy method for turning chocolate (or any flavor chip) into fast frosting. {OneCreativeMommy.com}

Place one cup of any flavor chips into a plastic bag. Microwave unsealed bag up to one minute. Using scissors, snip off a tiny corner off of the bottom of the bag. (The larger the hole, the larger your stream of frosting.) Carefully hold the bag (chocolate will be hot) with two hands. While your bottom hand slides down toward the chocolate, gently pull up with your top hand. The chocolate should flow slowly out of the hole.

Draw designs on your treats. Repeat with another flavor/color of chips. If desired, add sprinkles before the chocolate hardens.

To make treat pops, place the treats in the fridge or freezer to harden, and then insert a lollipop stick into the base of each treat.

  2. Those are adorable! I try to send allergy friendly treats into school for different things like birthdays and such, and those would be a very welcome treat! My middle kid's birthday is in a few weeks, so maybe I can do something similar for him, though if it is warm enough (you never know here) we might do popsicles. We shall see! Either way, I am going to try something like that real soon! It's too fun not to! :)
