Tastiest, Idiot-Proof, Gluten Free, Chocolate Rice Crispies Dessert

Gluten Free Chocolate Rice Crispies Dessert


Gluten free desserts are never quite the same, not that they’re necessarily less tasty, maybe just less familiar tasting, which is a problem for many kids. This dessert is so good, I had to restrain and ration both my son and husband from eating it. It’s gluten free, can be dairy free, even soy free.

Here’s a recipe my sister sent me from sunny Singapore. She either only shares the simplest recipe with me, or abbreviates them so I can be somewhat successful in reproducing them.

  1. Grease/butter an 8 inch square dish.
  2. Place about 10 oz chocolate * (chips or buttons or chopped from a block) and about 2 oz butter in a heatproof bowl (pyrex or metal is OK) and set this over a saucepan of gently simmering water until melted. (As it melts, give it stir now and then)
  3. Remove from heat and add about 3 oz rice crispies (one box) and stir till well blended. Tip everything into buttered dish. Spread it out. Take a piece of cling wrap, large enough to cover the dish, and use it to compact  the crispies. Leave the cling wrap on top, chill in fridge for about 1-2 hours, until it is firm.
  4. You can cut it up direct in the dish or turn it out to cut. A bit messy, but tastes good! Store in fridge.

That’s it. Enjoy!

* I used a dairy free, soy free semisweet chocolate.  May use up to 70% cocoa for the antioxidant, anything more would be too bitter, milk chocolate might be too sweet.
