Recipe: Peanut Butter Butterscotch Mounds (Gluten Free) :: Easy Like a Sunday Morning
Easy Like a Sunday Morning, that’s how the recipes in my “Easy” category will be. Nothing rushed or frantic, nothing with a long list of ingredients. Something that is so easy, you don’t really need a recipe. Something that almost cooks itself or requires no cooking at all.
I’m in trouble. Here I am trying to avoid sweets but in my pantry, are ingredients like White Chocolate chips and Butterscotch chips. They are left over from my Christmas Baking. What am I supposed to do? Toss them out? No, no I can’t do that…
I decided to use them to make some treats to have at our family gatherings over Easter weekend. The only problem is that I am weak, especially when it comes to doing battle with my insatiable sweet tooth. Oh my, just one little bite…pleeease!
Okay, I had more than just one bite but I’m sure you’ll understand and forgive me once you’ve tried these little morsels yourself.
Made with peanut butter, butterscotch and white chocolate, I set out to make a gluten free version of the haystack cookies I remember my mom making when I was little. She used chow mein noodles, which are not gluten free. I figured I could sub some gluten free corn flakes or gluten free crispy rice cereal for the noodles and I LOVE the results!
Okay, I confess, I did eat more than one of these little mounds but they’re so darn good…trouble…see, I told you I was in trouble
