Yep, I’m still just a girl trying to bring back the nostalgia of rice crispy cake 😂

And obviously, just a plain rice crispy cake is pure heaven in my eyes, but these… these are out of this world. And incredibly easy to make.

As they’re no-bake, it just involves chilling at each stage for the three layers. But of course, as each layer is chilling… you can chill too!

So what do my gluten-free snickers millionaire’s rice crispy squares taste like?

The base is a melted chocolate, rice crispy/marshmallow combo that’s crisp, chewy, sweet and infinitely more chocolatey than when using coco pops.

Next, you’ve got a thick layer of set caramel, packed with nuts – just like you’d get in a Snickers bar! Lastly, the top layer is a marbled milk/white chocolate final touch, topped with slices of Snickers.

Every bite is like nothing you’ve tasted before and needless to say, this doesn’t taste gluten-free AT ALL.

So I thought I’d kick things off with a little frequently asked questions section – if you just want the recipe, then keep scrolling.

But I’ve thrown in some tips here that will be really helpful if this is your first time baking this, or you want to adapt it. So here they are!

Gluten-free Snickers millionaire’s rice crispy squares recipe: Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make this recipe gluten-free?

It is gluten-free, though nobody would know just by tasting it – trust me!

Bear in mind that minimising cross-contamination is hugely important if you’re Coeliac or making this for someone who is. Here’s some tips from Coeliac UK on minimising the risk of cross contamination.

Also, make sure that all ingredients used don’t have any gluten-containing ingredients. Then make that that they also don’t have a ‘may contain’ warning for gluten, wheat, rye, barley, oats (which aren’t gf), spelt and khorasan wheat (aka Kamut).

Here’s some more info from Coeliac UK on identifying safe gluten-free products.

Can I make your gluten-free Snickers millionaire’s rice crispy squares recipe dairy free?

Unfortunately, this is one of those recipes where, by the time you made all the swaps to make this dairy-free… it would be a different recipe entirely!

You’re more than welcome to give my jammy dodger rice crispy cakes a go as they’re much easier to make dairy-free.

Can I make your gluten-free Snickers millionaire’s rice crispy squares recipe vegan?

Sadly, the same goes for making this vegan, as I mentioned above.

You’re more than welcome to give my jammy dodger rice crispy cakes a go as they’re much easier to make dairy-free/vegan.

Is your gluten-free Snickers millionaire’s rice crispy squares recipe nut free?

Sadly not as Snickers contain nuts.

Is your gluten-free Snickers millionaire’s rice crispy squares recipe low FODMAP?

Unfortunately, this recipe contains a lot of dairy, so you won’t be able to attempt this until you’ve successfully reintroduced dairy.

Are Snickers gluten-free?

Yes! At the time of writing, in the UK, Snickers have no gluten-containing ingredients and no ‘may contain’ gluten, wheat etc. allergy warning. Here’s a link to them so you can check for yourself.

According to Coeliac UK, if a product has no gluten-containing ingredients and no ‘may contain’ warning for gluten, wheat etc. then that makes it safe for Coeliacs and those on a gluten-free diet.

Which rice crispies are gluten-free?

Believe it or not, rice crispies aren’t always 100% free from gluten because they often contain barley malt extract.

However, some of these products are actually certified by Coeliac UK as being safe to eat, even despite containing barley. That’s because they contain less than 20 parts per million of gluten, which according to Coeliac UK, that makes them safe for people with Coeliac disease.

But don’t take my word for it – if you look on the Coeliac UK app (you have to be a paying member to view it) it actually shows that the below products are safe to eat.

So here’s a list of all the rice crispies which are safe for us to eat, including those that are free from barley entirely, if you’d prefer. Bear in mind that the barley-free products are more expensive and sometimes not quite like regular rice crispies – they seem to be flatter and less puffy.

Just as a note, a lot of Tesco’s own brand cereal also used to be certified by Coeliac UK as being gluten-free, despite containing barley. However, they’ve since been removed from the Coeliac UK app (without explanation), so I won’t be recommending them anymore.

Can I make this without the marshmallows?

Sadly not as the marshmallows are what binds the rice crispy cake together and gives it a lovely, sticky finish and sweet flavour.

Plus, for example, unlike using honey as a binder, mashmallows will bind the rice crispies together without having to bake them.

Can I make this using a tin of caramel?

No – tinned caramel will never set, even when chilled. When you go to cut these, you’ll end up with a huge mess!

Can I use a food processor or stand mixer to make this?

Both are total overkill for this recipe, especially since a food processor would blend the rice crispies instead of mixing them!

I’d definitely advise making this purely by hand to avoid crushing the rice crispies are they’re being mixed. So get a good silicone spatula or wooden spoon and get mixing!

Do I need any special equipment to make your gluten-free Snickers millionaire’s rice crispy squares recipe?

As I mentioned, you should definitely make this recipe by hand, so you certainly don’t need any crazy appliances or anything like that.

What you will need however is a 9″ square baking tin – here’s the one I use. Apart from that, you’ll just need a little baking paper too!

Do I need weighing scales to make your gluten-free Snickers millionaire’s rice crispy squares?

In short… yes, yes and yes! And I wouldn’t advise attempting any my recipes without them.

A lot of work went into fine tuning ratios and quantities and for me, baking is all about consistency and precision. I want you to make this recipe and for it to turn out EXACTLY like mine did.

I’d recommending using digital cooking scales like these so you know you’re getting an accurate measurement and replicating my recipe as accurately as poss.

How can I tell when my gluten-free Snickers millionaire’s rice crispy squares are ready to cut?

Until the marshmallow and butter have had time to set in the fridge, the bars will be loose and sticky.

Once they’ve had long enough in the fridge, they should be solid and sturdy, ready to be cut into bars. If you get them out too early, simply pop them back into the fridge for a little longer.

How long can I keep my gluten-free Snickers millionaire’s rice crispy squares for?

I’ve kept them for about 4-5 days in an air-tight container with no problems. If you need to keep them any longer than that, I’d highly recommend freezing them (see advice below for doing that).

Can I freeze my gluten-free Snickers millionaire’s rice crispy squares?

Of course! I’ve frozen them for up to 2-3 months no problem. Slice them up before freezing – that way you can simply defrost slices as and when you need them.

Plus, they’ll thaw a lot quicker. When you want to eat one, each slice should take around 3 hours to defrost at room temperature. You’d never know they were frozen!

Can I print your gluten-free Snickers millionaire’s rice crispy squares recipe?

Gluten-free Snickers Millionaire's Rice Crispy Squares Recipe - No-bake

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Additional Time: 4 hours
Total Time: 4 hours 30 minutes

Gluten-free snickers millionaire's rice crispy squares recipe - no-bake and super easy to make in no time! Wheat-free and Coeliac-friendly.

Ingredients

For the base:

  • 180g gluten free rice krispies
  • 50g butter
  • 200g marshmallows
  • 100g milk chocolate

For the caramel:

  • 185g butter
  • 35g golden caster sugar
  • 65g golden syrup
  • 397g condensed milk (1 tin)
  • good sized handful roasted peanuts (ensure they are gluten free and NOT dry roasted!)

For the topping:

  • 200g milk chocolate
  • 80g white chocolate
  • 2-4 Snickers bars (as many as you like really!)

Instructions

For the base:

  1. Prepare an 9x9 inch square tin with non-stick baking paper.
  2. In a saucepan, melt together your butter, milk chocolate and marshmallows. Stir throughout, it will take a little while, but don't let it stick. It will be smooth, thick and sticky once done.
  3. Place your rice krispies in a large bowl and pour over your very sticky marshmallow mixture. Try to mix it in with a spatula so that your rice krispies are evenly covered. However, I always find I end up using my hands - it's very sticky but worth it!
  4. Once the rice krispies are coated spoon them into a prepared 9x9 inch square tin (with non-stick baking paper in it). Press them in so they're nice and firm. I like to use a potato masher to push them down. Put in the fridge whilst you make your caramel.

For the caramel:

  1. Place all your caramel ingredients into a saucepan on a low/medium heat. Allow the butter to melt and the sugar to dissolve. Mix well to ensure it doesn't stick to the bottom and is combined.
  2. Once the sugar has dissolved and the butter melted, turn the heat up so the mixture starts to bubble a little. Keep stirring continuously for about 5 minutes (although I often going to about 7/8 minutes), the mixture should have thickened and also developed into a darker golden colour. It's done!
  3. Take your peanuts and sprinkle them all over your base. Then pour the caramel on top of your peanuts and krispie layer, spreading it so that it's even. Place in the fridge to set I tend to leave it for no less than 90 minutes.

For the topping:

  1. In separate bowls melt your milk chocolate and your white chocolate. You can do this in the microwave, or in a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water on the hob. If you melt it in the microwave, make sure you mix it every 20 seconds or so to ensure the chocolate doesn't burn.
  2. Pour your milk chocolate all over the top of the set caramel layer. Make sure it spreads evenly to the edges.
  3. Spoon on blobs of your white chocolate and using a skewer or a knife, swirl the chocolate around to make some random patterns!
  4. Chop up your Snickers bars into and decorate the top randomly with them. Then place back in the fridge to allow the chocolate to fully set. This often takes a couple of hours.
  5. Once set, remove from the tin and cut into squares. Enjoy!
