I am always trying to come up with party recipes that use items that are naturally gluten-free. Our friends don’t mind eating gluten-free foods, but when I’m throwing a party for 20 – 30 people, it can get expensive if I am baking with lots of organic brown rice flour.
I used to serve both normal and gluten-free foods at parties, but this summer when my youngest started showing signs of gluten intolerance, I declared my home a gluten-free zone. Since then I have been vigilant in two things: finding gluten-free substitutes for all of our favorite foods and creating frugal gluten-free snacks for large parties.
6 cups rice chex
6 cups popped popcorn
1 cup pecans (or other nut)
1 cup cranberries (or raisins)
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
In a large bowl, combine rice chex, popcorn, nuts, and cranberries.
In a small bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon, and salt.
In a small bowl, melt butter.
Slowly drizzle butter over Rice Chex mix, stirring constantly to ensure the mix is evenly coated. Sprinkle with sugar mixture. Toss to ensure the sugar mixture evenly coats the party mix.
