Gluten Free Dessert: Caramel Crunch Recipe

A quick and delicious gluten free dessert for that special someone with an allergy to gluten or some other foods. This recipe can also be made dairy free.

(GFCF depending on the cereal used)

1/4 cup GF margarine

1 tablespoon corn syrup

1 cup light brown sugar

4 cups rice cereal (like rice Chex or GF rice


Heat margarine and syrup over a low heat until the margarine is melted. Add the sugar. Stir briskly until smooth. Continue heating slowly without stirring until the mixture is all foam and twice the original volume. After it reaches this point, heat for exactly two more minutes.

While still on the burner, add rice cereal all at once. Stir until each piece is coated. Pour onto a greased cookie sheet. Spread out over the entire cookie sheet with buttered hands or a buttered spatula. The mixture will form a lacy pattern.

When the preparation has cooled, break into bite-sized pieces. This is very sweet and makes about 5 cups.

Popcorn could be used in place of rice cereal.
