Who cares though, because there are a few gluten free krispies alternatives. I used Nature's Path Crispy Rice, but I sometimes use the chocolate Koala Crisps. Both are delicious options. Kraft Marshmallows are gluten free.
All you need for rice crispy treats are most of a box of crispy cereal, a bag of marshmallows, and a little butter. They're pink today because I used strawberry marshmallows, which are delicious!
a bag of marshmallows
2 T butter
5-6 cups of rice cereal*
Lightly grease a 13x9 pan and set aside. Melt butter, then add marshmallows. Stir until smooth, remove from heat, and stir in the cereal. Spread in the pan and pat down with a lightly greased spatula. Cool and eat, not all at once if you can help it.
*I like to use less cereal sometimes so everything is more marshmallow-y. That's a word, right?
