Home Made LCM Bars...

Home Made LCM Bars...

I haven't blogged for ages. As I said to a friend the other day, I am working myself to the bone on family, friends, work and home. And I'm happy about that.

But another friend put a call out for ideas for her Sunday bake fest - and I was making these today, for the return to school lunch boxes, and so I promised her I'd blog the very simple and easy recipe for home made LCM bars.

These are no healthier than the sugar filled packaged bars you buy at the shops, but they are certainly easy and cheap and popular, so I tend to make them for my three lovely kids on occasion.

I can also lay no claim to the recipe - I suspect these have morphed from a back of the cereal box recipe.



Ingredients:

1 heaped tablespoon butter
125g Jersey Caramels
300g Marshmallows
6 cups Rice Bubbles
Chocolate sprinkles

Method:

~ Line a lamington tin with foil and spray lightly with spray oil
~ Use a large pan and melt the butter
~ Over a low heat, add the Jersey Caramels and the Marshmallows and stir to melt them into the butter - this takes for ages by the way - just keep the temp low and keep stirring
~ Working quickly, add the Rice Bubbles and stir in really well to combine - it's a sticky mess of spun sugar by this stage
~ Remove from heat
~ Dump the whole lot into the lined lamington pan and press down firmly using a sheet of baking paper, so that the whole lot is even and compressed
~ Top with a handful of sprinkles and chill in the fridge for a few hours
~Cut into squares or bars and wrap for lunchboxes.

Enjoy!

    1. You know what, I don't know! I did a whole load of brunches last year with Kelloggs too, and still never found out! Little Cereal Munchies?!

  9. Lucy, knowing that you went a bit without writing makes me feel better. I haven't been faithful to my blog as I've been battling through grief this year. Some things are just too dark to write about, but I'm getting through it. :-) Anyway, just want to say that "Rice Bubbles" sounds so much lovelier than the Rice Krispies we have here in the States-- although I'm sure they are one and the same! Cheers!
