Gluten Free, Dairy Free
Peanut Butter Chex Treats
These peanut butter crispy rice treats are one of my all time favorite indulgences! They are quick and easy to make and soooo delicious to eat! And best part? It's a super quick and easy gluten free and dairy free treat you can whip up whenever a craving strikes....or...you know...you just need a treat for the kids.
1/2 cup Peanut Butter
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 tsp butter
(or dairy free butter like earth balance vegan buttery sticks or Best Life Buttery Sticks)
3 cups rice Chex
Heat the peanut butter, corn syrup, sugar and "butter" over low heat in med-large pot and stir. Bring to a boil and then quickly remove from heat. Add the Rice Chex (or other crispy rice cereal) and stir with a spatula till cereal is coated and then press into an 8x8 inch pan. For topping, In the same pot while it is still warm, I like to add a rounded tablespoon of peanut butter and about 1/3 cup dairy free chocolate chips such as ghirardelli semi-sweet or 60% chocolate chips and stir till smooth and pour and spread over the peanut butter crispy treat.
I like to line my pan with parchment paper so it's easy to remove and cut.
