Gluten Free Rice Krispies Lemon Bars


These lemon bars are so crazy delicious, GLUTEN FREE and super easy! When Kellogg's contacted me about their new Gluten Free Rice Krispies I was so excited! I have several friends with Gluten sensitives and I really wanted to create a yummy recipe they would love! Our Lemonade Stand/Bake Sale for Competition #2 really inspired me (made me crave lemon bars) so I figured I'd give it a try! Why not substitute a cookie or pastry crust for Rice Krispies! And holy deliciousness did it ever work!


Ingredients & Directions:

CRUST:

6 cups Kellogg's Rice Krispies
4 cups Mini Marshmallows
4 tbsp Butter
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Place Rice Krispies in zip-lock bag and crush to a medium fine grain. Melt butter over low heat and add marshmallows, mix till smooth. Remove from heat and add Rice Krispies. When completely mixed press evenly into buttered pan. Let cool.



LEMON FILLING:

4 Extra-Large Eggs
1 1/2 cups Sugar
3/4 cup Fresh Lemon Juice (About 4 Lemons)
1/3 cup *Gluten Free All-Purpose Flour
1 Lemon, Zested
Confectioners Sugar

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Heat oven to 300 degrees. Wisk eggs & sugar till smooth, then add lemon juice, flour and zest. Pour filling mixture over Rice Krispies crust and bake in middle of oven for 30min. Let cool, sprinkle with confectioners sugar, cut up and enjoy!


Cool Trick: While baking the lemon filling mixture will sink to the bottom floating the Rice Crispy crust to the top! So I supposed technically they are "Upside Down" Gluten Free Rice Krispies Lemon Bars!

Rice Krispies Challenge #2: Summer Pastimes & Stuffed Peanut Butter Pops

It's that time again!! We are SO THRILLED to share our display for the Kellogg’s™ Rice Krispies™ Making Memories Challenge.
This challenges theme was:
FAVORITE SUMMER PASTIMES

We decided that one of our fondest Summer Memories was having a Lemonade Stand and Bake Sale.
What kid hasn't had a lemonade stand and loved it? Especially with this custom Lemonade stand we made from scratch.
For our main recipe we were thrilled to come up with something not only ORIGINAL and KID-FRIENDLY, but something SUPER DELICIOUS!
What's great about goodies on a stick is it really minimizes the mess, which is always a BONUS!


Speaking of bonuses, check out the INSIDE of our treat! They are stuffed with white chocolate peanut butter cups. They are beyond delicious.
Here's how you can make these UNIQUE and DELICIOUS pops...
Rice Krispies Stuffed Peanut Butter Pops
yields: approximately 24 pops

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 7 cups Kelloggs Rice Krispies
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • White chocolate peanut butter cups
  • White Chocolate Almond Bark
  • Long Lollipop Sticks
DIRECTIONS:
  1. Pour Kelloggs Rice Krispies into a large bowl.
  2. Bring peanut butter, sugar and corn syrup to a boil on medium heat.
  3. Pour mixture over Rice Krispies and stir making sure all cereal is lightly coated.
  4. Let cool for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Let your kids grab a handful of Rice Krispies mixture and add Peanut Butter cup to the center and roll into a ball.
  6. Insert stick to the center of the ball and press around. Do the same for all pops.
  7. Melt white chocolate bark in a pan on low heat stirring constantly.
  8. Drizzle white chocolate over the pops and let cool.
It was so much fun to join forces in building a lemonade stand and creating all sorts of YUMMY Rice Krispies goodies for the table.
