Raspberry Rice Rectangles - no baking!


You're going to love these ones if you have kids, or even if you don't!  These are a great addition to a lunchbox or to take to a BBQ or have a birthday party.  I know these will have an encore performance at Pink Ribbon Day for sure!

They take about 15 minutes to prepare so really, no baking required!

280g raspberry and vanilla marshmallows
75g butter or margarine
4 1/2 cups rice bubbles
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup dessicated or shredded coconut
1 cup dried raspberries (you can get these from fruit markets/deli or healthfood shops)

In a saucepan, melt the butter and marshmallows together over medium heat.  Stir and take off the heat once melted.

In a large mixing bowl combine the rest of the ingredients

Prepare a baking dish with aluminium foil, ensuring all sides are covered with some overhang to fold over the top.

Stir in the marshmallow and butter mix and stir quickly to combine.

Press the mixture into the baking dish, make sure it's compacted by pushing down into the corners with wet hands.

Cover the top and transfer to the refrigerator for 2 hours.

Take out of fridge and lift out the aluminium foil, peel off and cut into rectangles (or any shape you like!)

Store in airtight container away from direct light for 3-4 days

Great recipe, thank you! Exactly what I needed! My 6 yr old daughter insisted on having rice bubbles for breakfast & after the 1st try declared that she doesn't want them anymore. I was looking for recipes using rice bubble, so I don't just throw them away & that one looks perfect - no baking!

Whilst I don't love supermarket marshmallows on their own, they're great in hot chocolate and for cooking things like this! :)

Psst have you tried homemade marshmallows? Divine!

Yes Lorraine I have - we make them on a regular-ish basis, much nicer than the storebought ones on their own

The storebought though are great with this recipe because of the raspberry flavouring.. :) Oh, it it takes a bit less time :)

Hey Liss, just thought I'd let you know that you might like to take the tag gluten free off these, as oats aren't gluten free, and traditional rice bubbles aren't either, sometimes you can get GF marshmallows, but they are usually coated in a dusting of flour and other stuff :)
