Chocolate Rice Bubble Slice...



My Mum, in her day, was an expert at no bake slices and treats. I found this recipe the other day, tucked into a recipe book of hers. It looks like it was clipped from a cereal box...

I remember she made this for our lunch boxes.

In turn, I made this slice, with Lexie, yesterday. And we shall pop it into lunch boxes.
 
It is a much less sickly version of a chocolate crackle - and there is no copha at all so this slice has a much less greasy feel with a much lower fat content.
Chocolate Rice Bubble Slice
  • 3 cups Rice Bubbles 
  • 4 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 1 tablespoon icing sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter 
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 3 drops of vanilla essence
  • 100's and 1000's (sprinkles)
Put syrup, sugar and butter and cocoa powder into a pan, and melt whilst stirring until everything is smooth and combined.
Remove from heat, add vanilla essence and Rice Bubbles.
Mix well and press well into a greased lamington pan. Mark into squares.
Alternatively, divide mixture between 12 patty cases in a muffin tin.
Put in the fridge to set.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

  4. Looks delicious. Question: Is vanilla essence the same as vanilla extract? And what is golden syrup?

  5. @ Emily - Golden Syrup is a cane sugar syrup - you can replace it with a 50/50 mix of honey and corn syrup. And yes, vanilla essence/vanilla extract - same same!

  8. @ danneromero...Rice Bubbles are, I think, the same as Rice Krispies? Snap Crackle and Pop? (Kelloggs cereal.)

    We don't have Coco Pebbles here in Australia but I am guessing they are similar to Coco Pops? If so, you could probably use these too - but it would make it a much higher sugar content...

  9. Your Ma sure knew how to turn out a good slice, Lucy. We still have 'Lucy's Mum's Slice' on high rotation, but I will definitely make this one too. I'll let you know how I get on. x

  10. OMG Thank you! I'm literally about to make this (hehe have laptop sitting on benchtop). I have an 8yr old with quite a lot of allergies and trying to find chocolatey stuff for her as a treat has been ridiculous but now I can make "chocolate crackles" so she won't be left out at parties/school/easter (one of her allergies is soy and its in copha along with a million other things so chocolate crackles were a no go zone til now) so thank you again!! :)

  11. I have just made a batch for martial arts Christmas party. Instead of the 100's & 1000's I pressed in choc jaffas in rows. I am hoping they pass the test & are enjoyed! Thank you. I had a limited amount of ingredients & I didn't want to cook as we are expecting 37 tomorrow. They look interesting!!! Joanne Pope

  12. is the icing sugar just to dust on top once they have set? or does that go into the mixture as well? =)
