Okay, not technically Rice Krispies treats due to the malted barley flavoring Rice Krispies seems to believe it needs, but Barbara's Organic Gluten-Free Brown Rice Crisp Marshmallow Treats didn't sound quite as good to me.
and for all intensive purposes, these are most totally Rice Krispies Treats.
wait for it....
IN THE CROCKPOT!
and they were terribly easy and didn't encompass standing over the stove telling young children to stand back so they aren't scalded with high fructose corn syrup gooeyness.
Instead, they were plopped together and left to melt unattended while dinner dishes were cleaned, bath was had and books were read.
the stuff they tell you to use to make Rice Krispies treats.
--put butter in crockpot
--cover with the marshmallows
--cover with cereal--swat children's hands as they try to dig for marshmallows
--cook on high for 1 hour, stir all ingredients well.
--If it doesn't look done, cook for another 20-30 minutes.
--Spread into a prepared 9 x 11 pan or pyrex.
--Use Reynold's Release to press down so the marshmallows don't stick to your fingers or to a spatula. The real recipe says to use waxed paper, but I have had the wax paper stick miserably to my treats before providing much emotional and psychological distress.
--cut into squares when fully cooled.
or eat hot right out of the pan while watching reruns of The Office.
