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 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 ch...

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, ev...
