    • 80g butter
    • 140g puffed rice cereal, such as Rice Krispies®

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Extra time:1hr setting  ›  Ready in:1hr10min 

    1. Line a swiss roll tin with baking parchment.
    2. Place puffed rice into a large bowl.
    3. Melt marshmallows and butter in microwave using low heat, using 30 second bursts. Stir between each burst.
    4. The mix should appear smooth and creamy. (The butter may appear separated from the marshmallows, but will combine once added to puffed rice).
    5. Pour the mix onto the puffed rice. Mix well until the rice is evenly coated.
    6. Tip into tin and press down with the back of a metal spoon, smooth over so it is flat.
    7. Cool in the fridge for 1 hour or until set, then lift out of tray and remove baking parchment.
    8. Cut into approximately 24 bars or smaller.

    This was so easy and came out delicious. I halved the recipe and this was more than enough. My son is allergic to eggs so I am always looking for something interesting he can make. I drizzled mine in a some melted milk chocolate. Mmm Mmm!  -  09 Dec 2012

    Fantastic, made three batches to make a multi-layer birthday 'cake'. I added some vanilla extract to the recipe, covered it in chocolate and the kids loved it.  -  19 Sep 2015
