Warning: these are addictive. I’m usually pretty good at being able to restrain myself from eating copious amounts of the things I bake. But these were a bit of an exception. Super sweet, crunchy and with just the right amount of coconut, I couldn’t stop at one. And there must be something about the honey-vanilla combo, because MAN the flavour was amazing! To top it all off, the recipe was super, super simple, used only 7 ingredients, had no baking time, took only 10 minutes to make and I dirtied only 3 dishes! So what is there to stop you making these right now? Absolutely nothing!!
Extra note: these are the perfect alternative to Kelloggs LCM bars but this without the nasty additives. Other copy-cat LCM recipes (or 'rice krispie treats' usually contain marshmallows, which I am still keen to try in the future, but for the time being, I’m sticking with this recipe.
Honey Bubble Bars (Rice Bubble 'LCM' Slice)
110g butter, chopped
2 tablespoons honey
1 tsp vanilla
150g rice bubbles
60g dessicated coconut
Handful of choc-chips (optional, you could also try sprinkles, m&m's, chopped nuts etc)
Line a baking tin with non-stick baking paper (I used a 23cm square tin/approx 9x9inch)
In a medium saucepan, combine butter, sugar and honey. Stir over medium-high heat until melted and sugar is dissolved. Stir in the vanilla.
Transfer butter mixture to a mixing bowl, then gently stir in the rice bubbles and coconut until thoroughly combined. Press mixture into prepared baking tin, press chocolate chips on top if desired (you could always drizzle melted chocolate on top instead!) then refrigerate until firm.
Cut into slices and serve!
Makes about 16-20 slices. Store in an air-tight container.
