I wanted chocolate. I wanted peanut butter. I bought some Erewhon Gluten Free Organic Brown Rice Crisp Cereal today.
Which means, one of my old stand-bys from back in the gluten-filled day from my handwritten cookbook of all my favourites. Rather than Rice Krispies, this rice crisp cereal works out wonderful in a simple change to Gluten Free.
Peanut Butter Squares
Line a 8x8 square pan with parchment paper
- 6 tbsp butter
- 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup corn syrup
- 2 cups rice crisp cereal
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/3 cup crunchy peanut butter
Pour in the cereal and nuts and stir until coated.
Pour into prepared pan.
Melt chocolate chips and 1/3 cup peanut butter together in small saucepan or melt in microwave 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each interval until melted.
Pour over cereal, spreading evenly.
Chill until firm and cut into whatever size pieces you wish.
|This is the "I can't wait for it to properly set before I have one" look.|
This is always a Christmas party classic square which is when we usually have this. I think I might make it more often now.
|Ahhh, much better!|
