Gluten-free Christmas Treats

This wreath is made from one batch of Rice Krispie treats. I added green food coloring to the melted butter and marshmallow batter before adding the cereal. After it cooled down a little bit, I buttered my hands and formed the sticky mess into a circle. Then I added peanut M & Ms and green sprinkles to help it look more like a wreath. This was a hit!

I stopped eating anything containing Gluten (wheat, rye or barley) last February. I’m not really sure if I’m actually allergic to Gluten or not, but had been kind of “sickly” on and off for a couple of years, and once I cut Gluten out of my diet I have felt really good ever since. Maybe it’s just a coincidence, but I like feeling healthy again so I’m sticking with my Gluten-free lifestyle for now.

This photo shows one batch of "regular" Peanut Butter Blossoms (in front of Tim) and one batch that is Gluten-free. The GF version was made using Pamela's Baking Mix and they tasted just yummy to me!

This chocolate cake is also gluten-free. I used one of the new Betty Crocker gluten-free cake mixes. I thought this was also quite delicious!

We decorated the "Birthday Cake" on December 24th, and then ate it on Christmas Day.

These were not so good. I tried making little Christmas trees from Rice Krispie Treats. It was a huge mess. They turned out looking OK, but the gum drops make them sickeningly sweet. They got kind of gooey from all the butter I had to put on my hands too. Oh well... it was worth a try!
