Rice bubble slice is known by many different names: rice krispie treats, honey joys (although these are often made with corn flakes), rice bubble bars…..just a few I am aware of.
This timeless treat is popular with kids of all ages – I remember enjoying it when I was much younger (and I enjoyed it today too). I have called it a treat rather than a slice as it does have a good amount of sugar in it. I have used apple syrup in place of honey for a milder flavour. The apple syrup blends beautifully with the caramel marshmallows.
Caramel Rice Bubble Treats
180g caramel swirl marshmallows
2 T butter
1 1/2 T apple syrup
3 1/2 cups rice bubbles
Place marshmallows, butter & apple syrup in a large saucepan over medium-lot heat. Stir until the mixture has melted and combined together.
Remove from heat and stir in the rice bubbles.
Woking quickly, press the mixture into a greased 20 x 20 cm cake tin, using the back of a wetted spoon to help squish the mixture evenly.
Leave to set overnight or chill for a least a couple of hours.
Cut the slice into four squares, then each square in half diagonally to get 8 large triangles. Cut each triangle in half again for a smaller treat.
