Now I understand. All these years I've thought it was a little silly when parents said that their duty was to embarrass their kids, and while I still think that's a tad ridiculous, but I totally think it's necessary sometimes. As are these Gooey Fluffernutter Rice Krispies... ohsweetbasil.com

Now I understand. All these years I’ve thought it was a little silly when parents said that their duty was to embarrass their kids, and while I still think that’s a tad ridiculous, but I totally think it’s necessary sometimes. As are these Gooey Fluffernutter Rice Krispies…

What is Fluffernutter?

Fluffernutter is a wonderful concoction of Marshmallow Fluff and peanut butter in a delightfully tasty sandwich!

Yesterday I drove the girls to school.

In My bathrobe. It’s white. NBD.

I don’t usually drop off in the mornings so it was a last minute thing.

And then the girls were kind of having a quiet morning and I could tell it wasn’t going to be an awesome day. So I did what any of you would do, I threatened embarrassment.

Are Rice Krispies Treats Gluten Free?

I’m baffled that a cereal made from rice contains gluten, but it does.

Yep, Kellogg’s Rice Krispies contain malt flavoring, which is derived from a barley grain.

Barley is not gluten-free and therefore Kellogg’s Rice Krispies are not gluten-free.

I turned up the music, sang (I CANNOT SING) at the top of my lungs and threatened to roll the windows down at every stoplight unless they sang with me.

It was amazing. At first they tried to ignore me, but then they could see a red light ahead. Oh the terror!!

Suddenly everyone was giggling and singing but it wasn’t loud enough so as we approached the school I threatened to sit in the drop off line and really get into it. They died. They started singing so fast and loud in between every giggle and you know what? We all had a pretty dang good day after that. I guess happiness really is a choice. And you’d better choose to make these peanut butter marshmallow krispies because oh my goodness, it’s like gooey perfect. Scotcheroos combined with rice krispies combined with marshmallow fluff. It’s what heaven will one day be made out of, as well as jiggly thighs and bellies. You’re welcome.

How Long Will Rice Krispie Treats Keep?

Rice Krispie treats are best the same day.

You can keep them from getting too hard by really sealing them well with Saran Wrap and keeping them air-tight and they will be ok for 2-3 days but they are just so much better-textured the same day.

  • This is off topic (although these rice krispy treats look like a dream) but when is your cookbook coming out? The last thing I remember reading was an option to pre order coming soon. I CANNOT wait for it to come out and would love to know when it’ll be in my hands so I can start making ALL the things!!
