Gluten Free Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats

Before I received my Celiac Diagnosis, I was sick all the time. Without much information, I deemed myself lactose intolerant.

It sort of made sense with the connections I made. Anytime I ate pizza, I would get SO BLOATED. Must have been the cheese. I would have never even thought that it was the crust! Plus when I ate ice cream I would also get sick. Must have been the dairy…EXCEPT…

it was Cake Batter ice cream!

Yep. I frequently indulged on ice cream WITH GLUTEN in it! Eesh.

Luckily my diagnosis saved me from making mistakes – now I know what I can and can’t eat. But you know what….I miss CAKE BATTER!

I LOVE that flavor. Rich, sweet, and oh so creamy. After perusing Pinterest for recipes, I finally hit the motherload:

gluten hates me cake batter

Gluten Free Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats

Oh yeah. I will never make “regular” rice krispie treats again!

Best part? They are EASY to make!

Gluten Free Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats

You’ll need:

6 tbsp. butter

6 cups Gluten Free Rice Krispies

1/2 cup Gluten Free Yellow Cake Box Mix (I used Betty Crocker)

1 10 oz. bag of mini marshmallows (I used Jet Puffed)

Start by melting the 6 tbsp. of butter in large pot over medium heat. Once completely melted, add the entire bag of mini marshmallows and stir until completely incorporated.

Once the marshmallows are completely melted – no lumps – remove the pot from heat and stir in the cake mix. Keep stirring until the cake mix is completely incorporated, again – no lumps.

Finally, add in the 6 cups of Gluten Free Rice Krispies. Stir and Stir and Stir until the mix is coated on the krispies. Then transfer the coated krispies to a butter coated casserole dish and spread out evenly.

Add sprinkles to the top for fun and allow the krispies to cool and set before cutting!

I took these yummy treats to our Christmas Decorating party at work this past Sunday, and they were a huge hit!

Plus, I LOVE how easy they are to make!

I will definitely be making this recipe again!
