Who doesn’t love Rice Krispies Treats? I can remember being a teenager and my sister and I would sit down with a pan of them and keep cutting and eating more until we couldn’t fit another one in. I came across a recipe for Cookie’s n’Cream Rice Krispie Treats on the Glorious Treats blog and they looked amazing. Rice Krispie Treats are a frequently-made dessert for my family because they are wheat-free. Wheat is one ingredient that my nephew is allergic to and it is in almost every dessert. It is so difficult to find a dessert that we can all share. When I saw this recipe, I immediately thought of KinniToos, a wheat-, egg-, and dairy-free chocolate sandwich creme cookie. In Toledo, we buy ours at Meijer. By using margarine, instead of butter, you can make these dairy-free too.
Allergen-Free Cookies ‘n’ Cream Rice Krispies Treats
- 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 20 Kinnitoos cookies
- 5 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
- 3 T. butter or margarine
Crush the Kinnitoos cookies in a plasic bag. Melt the butter and marshmallows in a large pot. Add cereal and cookies to the pot and stir to combine. Press into a 9×13″ pan that has been coated with non-stick cooking spray. (I like to use the butter wrapper to press it down evenly.) Allow to cool, then cut with a serrated knife. Enjoy!
Sometime in the future, I would love to try to make my own marshmallows to make these corn-free too! Have you ever made marshmallows in your kitchen?
