If you like caramel corn, you’ll love these super-easy, super-tasty bars. We usually eat them plain but for a special treat you can add a layer of melted chocolate, popcorn or dried fruit. They can even be cut or sculpted into fun holiday shapes – think leaves or jack-o-lanterns for fall – and decorated with icing and candy.
This recipe is adapted from one we found on the inside of a Kellogg’s Rice Krispies box years ago.
What you’ll need:
170 g gluten free caramels (we use 25 of the square Kraft caramels)
1 Tablespoon butter
1 Tablespoon milk
2 cups gluten free crispy rice cereal (we use nature’s path)
Optional Add Ins: ¼ cup chocolate chips, candies, nuts, dried fruit – you get the picture.
What you’ll do:
Place caramels, butter and milk in large microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for one minute. Remove and stir.
Repeat step one until the caramels are melted. Our microwave takes 2 minutes.
Remove from microwave and add crispy rice. Stir until coated.
Let cool slightly and stir in any add ins.
Cut or sculpt into shapes or press into lightly greased 9 x 9 pan and let cool.
