Kelly and I were chatting once again, trying to think up a new and creative recipe tutorial for this summer. The love our Basic Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe, which is both eggless and gluten-free, and we wanted to do something with it! We were thinking ice cream sandwich somethings.
I mentioned to Kelly that I wanted to invent a gluten free cookie or container to hold the ice cream with. I thought of rice krispies treats because they could be formed around the ice cream, but I knew they contained gluten. But, Rice Chex cereal is gluten-free, and wondered if they could be crushed and used instead of Rice Krispies. We both thought it could be done, and we discussed making a bowl shape or another type of shape from our own recipe. I wrote a Rice Chex Treats Recipe and sent it to Kelly.
Now people who can't tolerate gluten have a yummy alternative to waffle cone ice cream bowls. Kelly formed the recipe into a bowl shape and filled it with her luscious Peanut Butter and Fudge Swirl Ice Cream. And, yes, certain brands of maraschino cherries are gluten-free - just double check to make sure.
