Who says gluten-free goodies don’t taste good? I modified a recipe for Crunchy Butterscotch Treats and came up with a winner. At least my family liked them; when I returned from work all the treats were devoured. These small bites make great homemade Halloween treats for anyone following a gluten-free diet.
Adapting the Recipe for a Gluten-Free Diet
To adapt this recipe from the original one making it gluten-free, I substituted General Mills Rice Chex for chow mien noodles. The other ingredients — chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, peanuts and candy corn for garnish — are gluten-free. Many grocery stores have labels on shelves by items to identify if the ingredient is gluten-free. This makes it much easier for anyone following a gluten-free diet to adhere to the diet and to substitute ingredients. For example, other brands of rice chex or rice cereal could be used in place of the General Mills brand. Other types of chips or nuts could be used in the recipe. Try some substitutions yourself!
