It’s Christmas!! And with Christmas comes all of those amazing desserts and squares that Grandma used to make. This was on the table at family events, served at wedding and funeral receptions and a staple at coffee hour after church. We can still find this in truck stops and coffee shops when we travel “home” on holidays.
This is a great one for people in North America who can get cheap peanut butter (yay!), but either don’t have access to gluten free baking supplies or find them financially out of reach. There’s another version of this bar that uses butterscotch chips. Be REALLY careful buying butterscotch chips and read the label! Some butterscotch chips (like Toll House) are flavored with barley and so contain gluten. It says so right on the label. Hershey’s Butterscotch Chips are gluten free so make sure you use them instead. You can click HERE for a complete list of Hershey’s gluten free products. If you see the butterscotch version in a truck stop (it looks like it’s made with just peanut butter), ask what brand of butterscotch chips they used before you buy.
Also, I stick with Kraft marshmallows. Their plain white mini marshmallows are gluten free. I have noticed gluten in some other brands of marshmallows. Again, really read labels on both your chocolate chips and marshmallows. Kraft is really good about listing ingredient sources on their lables. You can find out more about how helpful Kraft labels are HERE.
