GLUTEN-FREE BUTTERSCOTCH CHIPS - can be found by buying either Hershey or Kroger brand butterscotch chips. Read the package to make sure, but as of 11-23-09 both those brands are gluten-free.
WAIT!!!! Before you make this recipe you should know that butterscotch morsels contain barley extract, which is not gluten-free. I would stick with semi-sweet chocolate morsels.
This is a good recipe but we have made them with a gluten-free ginger snap crust. Just crush gluten-free ginger snaps and combine with melted butter until the mixture holds together and press into the bottom of the pan.
It works great and tastes even better!
This is a great recipe and everyone loved it (even though it was made specifically for someone on a gluten free diet). After reading the other reviews, I made several changes. Line the pan with Reynolds Release foil...they didn't stick at all. Also, I used more of the coconut on the bottom (it was more like a crust) and easier to handle.I also baked it about 10 minutes longer than indicated and that helped the bars stick together. I also added a handful of extra chocolate chips (or you can sprinkle them on top).
I am new to celiac and love to bake. This was a life saver! Do add more coconut- and when it says 'wait till completely cooled' that means COMPLETELY. I would cool overnight before cutting.
After reading all the reviews, I decided to add a crust, using crushed Gluten free Ginger Snap cookies(roughly a cup), finely chopped pecans(roughly a cup) and 2-4 Tbls of melted butter. I also allowed them to cool overnight before I cut into bite size pieces, which was also recommened. These were very good. A great chewy cookie type dessert for those of us that are gluten intolerant.
this is similar to my Hello Dollies. You can use any GF breakfast cereal (like Rice Crunch'ems), mixed with melted butter, as a crust. BE AWARE!! that the most popular brand of butterscotch chips has gluten, so don't use them. I haven't found a substitute.
I'd give this 6 stars if the option were available. My oldest daugher has Crohn's disease and is on a gluten-free diet. She LOVES these! I'm on no special diet and love them too. In fact, everytime I make them, they disappear. I've been asked for the recipe each time I make them and when I bring them to work, they disappear within minutes! Thanks so much! Wonderful!
