Gluten Free Candy Corn Rice Krispie Treats


For the yellow ring

4 1/2 cups gluten free rice krispies cereal
5 cups mini marshmallows
3 tablespoons butter
Yellow food coloring

For the orange ring

2 3/4 cups gluten free rice krispies cereal
3 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
tablespoons butter
Red and yellow food coloring

For the white center

2 cups gluten free rice krispies cereal
2 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
tablespoons butter

Also needed:
2 8-inch cake pans
Non-stick cooking spray
½ stick of butter (to grease your hands)

Makes 16 candy corns


1. In a large saucepan melt 3 tablespoons butter over low heat. Once butter has melted completely, remove pan from heat and add 5 cups mini marshmallows and stir constantly until marshmallows have melted. Add 3 drops of yellow food coloring and stir till combined. Once yellow food coloring is incorporated add 4 1/2 cups of the  rice krispies to the marshmallow mixture approximatelly 1 cup at a time stirring consistently with a buttered spatula.

Divide the yellow rice krispies in half between the 2 8-inch pie pans. Wipe butter on both of your hands to prevent the krisipie mixture from sticking to your hands. Create a “ring” around the outer edge of the cake pan, approximately 1-inch thick. Work quickly as the mixture becomes harder to mold as it cools.  See image below:

2. Repeat the same process in step 1 with the correct amount of ingredients for the orange ring and then the white center. 

*For orange layer: add 1 drop red food coloring and 2 drops yellow food coloring

Once the 3 different colors have been pressed into the pan allow to cool for at least an hour. Mine sat over night and were VERY easy to remove from the pan. When it is time to cut into the candy corn triangles shape, take a knife and saw around the exterior of the circle and then flip the pan over on a wooden surface. Tap the pan to allow the rice krispie mixture to fall onto the board. With a sharp knife, cut the circle in half and then into quarters  and then once more to create the triangle “candy corn” shape.
