Are Rice Krispy 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.

This is a post from years ago that we’ve updated to be even better. We took those chinese noodle nests every blogger posts about and made them our own by switching to rice krispy cereal and filling them with a peanut butter cream, much like fudge. We hope you love our peanut butter cream filled mini cadbury egg rice krispy nests as much as we do.

Can Dogs Eat Rice Krispy Treats?

Yes. This rice-based cereal is safe for dogs to eat.

Rice krispie treats wont hurt him, if it does do anything bad he will throw it up, that’s about it.

And we hope you try saying that name 5 times fast, because good mercy it’s a mouthful.

Now, let’s check out our blast from the past and what we had to say about these years and years ago…

A few days before Easter our daughter was really bored and so to pass the time I made up a little Easter treat for her to make. She had so much fun making these Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Nests. We made the nests by hand the first time, but now we form them in a muffin tin and then press down the centers to make them a little bit more uniform in size and shape. She was so proud of making them herself that we didn’t care if some of them were a little lopsided. I can’t believe how much joy can come from such a simple little activity. Plus, who doesn’t love a peanut butter rice krispy treat??

We filled these with a simple peanut butter cream for the cadbury mini eggs to be nestled into. We tried them with and without it and while I tend to like things simple and classic, this new version with the cream is FANTASTIC. I definitely wouldn’t skip it unless you absolutely have to.

How Do You Keep Rice Krispy Treats Soft?

Place your marshmallow Krispies treats in a single layer inside a resealable freezer bag if you need to keep them fresh for longer than two days.

Once the treats are inside the bag, squeeze out all excess air and place it in the freezer for up to six weeks.
