rice bubble slice

I am always on the look out for easy recipes to make as treats for the kids school lunches. My children particularly like this one as they think it is just like a prepackaged snack bar LCMs. If you have an easy recipes for lunch box treats I would love it if you could link to them in the comments :) .

Rice Bubble Slice

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 250 grams white marshmallows
  • 6 cups of Rice Bubbles (again the home brand version is fine and they are known to some as Rice Krispies!)

Instructions:

  1. Line a slice tray with baking paper.
  2. Place the rice bubbles into a large bowl.
  3. On a low heat, melt the butter in a saucepan.
  4. Add marshmallows to the butter and stir until they are completely melted. I have bought the home brand pink and white ones and they work fine, but I think the taste is nicer if it is just plain white.
  5. Pour marshmallow mix into the bowl with rice bubbles and combine well.
  6. Press mixture into the tray. (If it is sticking to your hands, try wetting them slightly with cold water.)
  7. Put in the fridge to cool and set.
  8. Once set, cut into desired shape. I tend to go for rectangles about 5cm x 3cm.

    My kids like pita “chips” – we use a bag of pita bread on sale (i.e. getting close to its use-by date), split the slices in half then cut into wedges (‘chip’ sized), brush some olive oil over the top (I use a garlic flavoured oil), and bake in a hot oven for about 8 minutes. The older ones like to dip in salsa, the younger ones just eat them plain.

    Oh I need to get back into meal planning … I am so impressed with you being able to keep the blog and your level of organisation going with all your kids and a little baby! DH has started complaining that all we eat is spag bol, sausages and mash, and stirfry .. with soup and bread on a Sunday! Its tragic but true … I think I”ll just follow your meal plans for now, we’ll be like PlanningQueen groupies!
