Marshmallow treats

I love Rice Crispies treats, and the originals aren't safe in terms of cross-contamination, so, I
just had to make my own! I used my GF rice cereal and they were great. Then the light-bulb went on! I used some of my "Bakery on Main" granola and my "treats" have moved into another universe of delight altogether. Calorific as heck, but, hey, life is short!
Use the recipe on the back of the original cereal box and just substitute any crunchy cereal! Great to pop in your bag when going somewhere and you don't know if there will be a munchy that's "safe". Carry these and some GF pretzels along as well as some fruit if it's going to be a long day with breaks and meals. The annual Sacred Harp convention, which is on today's agenda, includes the trad "dinner on the grounds., with the equally-trad fried chicken, etc but you can be pretty sure there will be some ham and other things in the "safety zone," When dessert-time rolls around, it's nice to have something of your own to eat and not feel left-out, so the treats and the fruit will "do it for you."
I have looked at the ingredients in the new Tesco GF bread and am going to try and duplicate it in my kitchen. Wonder how many doorstops I will bake up before I get it right????
