These Rocky Road treats are a twist on your usual rice krispy treat! Warning: They are addicting! They are also super easy to make and delicious! Chocolate & peanut butter…. what more could you ask for!
These rocky road treats are Gluten-free! Just BEWARE of the marshmallows that you use. If you use Jet Puffed (as shown below) you will be good to go. I say beware because some marshmallow companies use a wheat starch so that would make them non gluten friendly.
Just like rice krispy treats these are no bake! You simply melt almost everything in a large pot and then add the cereal and marshmallows and voila! you have yourself a delicious snack!
After you remove the pot from the heat and stir in the cereal, let the mixture cool for a couple minutes before adding in the marshmallows. This will ensure that the marshmallows stay chunky like the image to the left instead of melted into the batter like the image on the right (which were still delicious).
You want to refrigerate the mixture for at least 15 minutes until they are cool. Preferably 30 minutes or more. They will slice nicely when cool and as long as you spray the baking dish, very easy to get out of the pan!
Hope you enjoy this yummy dessert as much as we do!
