Gluten Free Chocolate Krispy Treats
6 Tbsp butter (real butter, not margarine)
1 (16 oz) bag large marshmallows
1 (13 oz) box Cocoa Pebbles cereal
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Spray a 9x13 pan and a spatula with nonstick cooking spray.
In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the bag of marshmallows, stirring constantly, until they are almost completely melted (there should still be some semi melted marshmallows). Remove from heat and add the entire box of Cocoa Pebbles cereal. Stir well to incorporate. Pour into the 9x13 pan and press down with the spatula. Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top.
I am a rice krispy treat junkie, a true addict. Why oh why do they put malt flavoring in rice krispies? It's like some kind of cruel joke. But, here is an alternative. These are chocolaty and krispy and marshmallowy. Very yummy. Please use real butter, it makes a world of difference. And use the large marshmallows, they don't melt as fast giving the treats the perfect gooey consistency. I dare you to not eat it out of the pan like I do, with a big wooden spoon, marshmallow coating your fingers. Mmmmmm.
FYI-I called about the Cocoa Pebbles and the people at Post basically said, if it doesn't say wheat, barley, oats, or rye, it's gluten free, without actually saying they were gluten free. Hmmm...I'm assuming they don't want a lawsuit. Anyways, there is no gluten in any of the ingredients listed on these or Fruity Pebbles. I've had Fruity Pebbles treats as well, which are good but a little fruity.
