Wheat and Gluten Free Easter Treats

Three simple, inexpensive and easy recipes that our teens and tweens group put together as an Easter treat basket to share.

1) Gluten Free Rice Krispie square shaped bunnies and eggs

2) Easy Chocolate Truffles

3) Chocolate covered peanut butter cookies

Most things you will have in the larder plus a couple of items from the dollar store:

1 box gluten free rice krispies

1 pack marshamallows

Vanilla Essence

Butter or Margarine

I large bag plain chocolate chips

Heavy cream (for ganache)

Peanut butter

1 x Egg

Sugar

Grated orange zest to flavour truffles (optional)

Easter basket/bags or plate to assemble and present treats on

Truffles:

Ganache: Heat 1 cup heavy cream and stir in 2 cups dark chocolate chips until smooth. Place in fridge or freezer and allow to set. Optional add orange zest, mint or for adults a liquer such as baileys or cointreau.

When ganache is set roll into balls and coat with coconut, coca powder or melted chocolate. Put on wax paper or foil and place in fridge to set further.

Rice Krispie Shapes:

melt 1.4 cup margarine or butter, stir in 300g of marshmallows and 6 cups rice krispies plus 1 tsp of vanilla...Take heaping spoonfulls of mixture and shape into eggs, bunnies or other shapes or flatten and cut with shaped cookie cutters. Sprinkle with coloured sugar or add cocolate chips and icing to decorate.

Peanut Butter Cookies, decorated with melted chocolate

Mix together I cup peanut butter crunchy or smooth, 1/2 cup sugar and one egg. Roll into balls and poke hole in the top. Bake 10mins at 350. Leave to cool and set on baking sheet - cookies will be soft and need to harden before removing. Place on foil and decorate using melted chocolate, candies and coconut or sprinkles.


I haven't had a chance to make this treat yet but I received this link from a friend - sounds quite yummy and another easy option for wgf guests that you may be hosting this Easter: http://www.damyhealth.com/2012/03/orange-creamsicle-tarts/

Please be aware that the rice krispie recipe does use ingredients which some may refute as suitable for serious celiacs due to processing plants.
