Gluten Free GF Mock Rice Krispy Treats

One of Alex's most missed foods is Rice Krispy Treats. Thanks to a suggestion from the Silly Yaks Yahoo group we found a great substitute and the best part is that Alex can make them himself!

2-4 T. butter or margarine
30 large marshmallows
1 tsp. vanilla (optional)
8-10 ounces of your favorite gf cereal

We used Panda Puffs but you could try O's, cornflakes, or whatever you like.

Spray a 9 inch square pan with Pam. Melt the butter or margarine in a large bowl in the microwave. Add the marshmallows and vanilla, stir to coat marshmallows. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir. Repeat until marshmallows are puffy and you can no longer see individual marshmallows. Stir in cereal, you have to decide how much to use. We like it with lots of marshmallow and less cereal. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Spray your hands with Pam and press cereal down till firm. Let set 1 hour.

It contains barley malt, which has gluten.
