Rice bubble slice

A lunchbox staple in our house and easy to melt butter and marshmallows in the microwave - no heating up the kitchen in Summer! This recipe comes from the failsafe website.

200 g of home-made marshmallows (see recipe elsewhere or 2 x 100g packets of Pascall's white marshmallows)
80 g butter or Nuttelex
4 cups rice bubbles
Measure rice bubbles and place them in a large bowl. Line a lamington/ swiss roll tray with ovenbake paper. Melt marshmallows & butter over low heat, stirring so it doesn't burn. Alternatively melt butter in microwave, add marshmallows and microwave on high for another 30 seconeds. Pour the marshmallow and butter mix onto the rice bubbles. Mix well. Tip into lined tray and press down. This may work best with a metal spoon as the mixture cools.

I have so little time to browse through other blogs lately, but when I do, yours is one of a few I come to. It's always good to catch up on what you've been doing, Lis. This week is no exception with all your cooking projects. Your kids must love all your home cooking.

Kate - is a great lunchbox idea, just gets a little sticky in summer if the lunch doesn't have an ice brick

Rhonda - Thnak you, you are too kind. Your blog is my favourite and I am thrilled you love to visit mine.

I made this and it was a complete disaster!! It all fell apart. What did id do wrong?

Hi Anon

Did you weigh all the ingredients correctly? If it is not sticking together you need more marshmallows or less rice bubbles.
Hope this helps.
