Gluten Free Chocolate Crispy Brownies

These Gluten Free Chocolate Crispy Brownies are a welcome addition to any cookie platter, as they’re a great change of pace from your regular cookie fare or brownie fare for that matter. My kids love rice krispies treats and brownies as well so why not put the two together for a divine dessert!

BAKE 30 to 35 min. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out with fudgy crumbs. (Do not overbake.) Allow to cool completely in the pan.

While the brownies are cooling, make the crisp rice layer. Place the crisp rice cereal and salt in a large bowl, and toss to combine. Set the bowl aside.

In microwave-safe bowl heat butter and marshmallows on HIGH for 1-1/2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute. Stir until smooth. Microwave cooking times may vary.

Pour the marshmallow mixture into the bowl of crisp rice cereal and stir to coat the rice cereal completely in the marshmallow mixture without crushing the cereal. Transfer the cereal mixture to the pan of cooled brownies and press firmly into an even layer on top of the brownies. Allow to sit at room temperature until set (about an hour).
