Honey Rice Bubble Slice

This is an old family favourite and it only takes 5 minutes to make and 5 minutes to set.  No baking – how easy does that make it. It’s a great last minute slice to make for the kids and I vary it a lot by adding different flavours and treats. The slice in the picture has dried figs added to it.

Ingredients

  • 125g butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 cups Rice Bubbles
  • 3 tablespoons of honey.

Method 

  1. Prepare a medium slice tin with baking paper.
  2. Put the rice bubbles in a bowl.
  3. In a saucepan – melt the butter, honey and sugar together.
  4. Bring the mixture up to the boil without stirring it. Cook for approximately two minutes until the colour changes and the mixture starts to get tacky like toffee.
  5. Tip the hot mixture into the rice bubbles and mix immediately until the liquid coats the rice bubbles completely. Be quick as it will start setting quickly.
  6. Tip into the prepared slice tray.
  7. Using a large dry spoon – flatten out the mixture and press down into the tin until level.
  8. Leave to cool. Cut into slices.
  9. Store at room temperature. The slice will last about two weeks.
VARIATIONS

There is enough liquid in this mixture to add extra ingredients. I often add a 1 cup of chopped dried fruit ie: apricots, figs, sultanas or try a mixture of roasted nuts, pumpkin seeds or coconut. A favourite for the kids is M & M’s or chocolate buttons. If you are adding other treats to the slice – mix them in well with the rice bubbles first to that it is well mixed before you add the liquid – with the exception of chocolate – just leave that to sprinkle over the top.
