As many of you know we are gluten free which means we are forced to eat rice crispy treats all season long while everyone else gets to chow down on a variety of cookies full of gooey chocolate peanut butter goodness. Not this year my friend! I decided to ward of the gluten free holiday blues by adding some a peanut butter pizzaz and a chocolate kick to the standard crispy treat. I call them the Cocoa Crispy Coal Treats!
Ok, so they don’t look like black coal but when you put them inside a parchment paper christmas stocking anything can look like lumps of coal! Check out the parchment paper stocking DIY and other fun stocking crafts here.
Cocoa Crispy Coal Treats Recipe
- Box of Cocoa Crispy cereal
- Package of marshmallows
- Half cup agave syrup
- One cup of peanut butter (We use Skippy natural)
- Greased pan
Bring agave syrup to a simmer then quickly stir in peanut butter, marshmallows and cereal. The trick is to stir fast to keep them from burning. Once it’s all mixed nicely pour into greased pan and wait for it to cool.
The end result is gooey yummy peanut butter chocolate marshmallow goodness! Take that glutenoids!
