Gluten Free Rice Crispy Treats with Sprinkles
What kid doesn't love rice crispy treats? I think it's safe to say most adults love them too. They are so gooey and delicious and the perfect treat to take to any party, activity or to just enjoy at home. When we first went gluten-free I just assumed the traditional rice treats were gluten-free, but unfortunately that is not the case. Rice Krispies are actually made with malt, which is derived from barley so they are in fact not gluten-free. Finding a gluten-free rice cereal was harder than I had expected, but we were finally able to find a couple that were certified gluten-free. Now we can make and enjoy the classic treats we all know and love. I hope you enjoy!
