Puffed Rice Slice

You know those rice bubble bars you buy at the shops?  Sure they're convenient for the lunchbox, but have you ever actually looked at what's in them?  Hopefully you can zoom in enough to see the ingredients list:

Yep, absolutely filled with unnecessary extras.  When you realise how easy it is to make your own, you won't need to buy them any more!  It'll save you heaps of money, heaps of plastic packaging & takes hardly any time at all.  These keep well in the fridge and are also suitable to freeze, so you can always have them on hand.  You can get puffed rice in the health food section at the supermarket - it's better than rice bubbles, because the only ingredient is rice!  You'll love these ones :-)

100g butter
1/2 cup caster sugar
2 tablespoons honey
100g puffed rice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup desiccated coconut

Combine butter, sugar and honey in a bowl and microwave for 2 minutes, until butter is melted OR combine in a small saucepan.

Add puffed rice, vanilla and coconut and mix well.

Pour into a lined slice tin and refrigerate until firm.

Cut into slices and serve.  Keep in the fridge.
