Crispy, Creepy Critters

by Enjoy Life

NO: wheat, gluten, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, egg or soy


1 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup brown rice syrup

1/2 cup shortening (Spectrum)

1 Tbsp tapioca flour

1/2 tsp xanthan gum

1/2 cup sunflower butter (Sunbutter)

1 tsp vanilla

2 boxes (approx 6 ½ cups) Nutty Rice or Nutty Flax

1/4 – 1/2 cup Chocolate Chips


Combine first five ingredients in a large pan, heat to boiling. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook one more minute stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and add sunflower butter and vanilla. Beat with a spoon until blended. Add chocolate chips and Nutty Rice quickly, and stir until coated (chocolate chips will melt).

Lightly grease two 11”x 7”x 1” jelly roll pans. Firmly press the mixture into the pans and cool. Cut shapes with Halloween cookie cutters and remove carefully. Decorate as desired for a deliciously, fun Halloween treat!

NOTE: Use cutters with simple shapes and if they do crumble upon removal, just press them back into shape.
