Some creations are so easy, but so irresistible. Some, such as these Gluten Free Millionaire Rice Krispie Treats should also come with a warning.
Sticky, crispy, chewy, and oh so gooey. There’s something timeless about a rice krispie treat. They’re pure childhood nostalgia, but they seem to taste even better as an adult. These are the childhood favorites you loved given a glamorous makeover.
Over the Top Decadence
You are going to feel like a million bucks when you make these Gluten Free Millionaire Rice Krispie Treats. I am warning you now though, set at least one aside for yourself because these disappear fast!
When anything starts with melted Dairy Free butter and marshmallows, you already know it’s going to be good. Throw in molten drippy chocolate and that rich flavor of caramel and you have the ultimate confection.
The combination of chocolate and caramel takes these rice krispie treats to the next level, and also gives them their name. Millionaire shortbread, and millionaire candy, combines the classic duo.
Unlike many recipes for caramel this one comes together easily with just a single ingredient, Dairy Free condensed sweetened milk. Made with coconut milk, it simmers until it turns a beautiful glossy golden blonde and then is allowed to cool until it thickens.
In addition to the caramel, I am using a Dairy Free semi-sweet chocolate. Use your favorite for this recipe. Part of the melted chocolate and caramel sauce are combined for that final luxurious drizzle.
