I might be a lunchbox nazi but I do like to treat my frills every now again with something fun at home. This is something could make for the lunchbox with sultanas instead of sprinkles and avoid the colourings by using white marshmallows. If your kids beg you to buy LCM's but you can't justify the $4 a packet - here's your answer because this makes 12 of them for about $3.
And come on, they take less than 10 minutes to make and the kids can help with the mixing and the sprinkles... these are an easy promise to make!
175g packet marshmallows (I used pascal berry swirls, the smell is a bit much whilst it's cooking but it tastes nice as a final result)
4 1/2 cups rice bubbles
sprinkles or mini chocolate chips (optional)
Grease a slice tray with canola oil and fill a bowl with the ricebubbles
In a saucepan over low heat melt the butter and marshmallows together
Mix the marshmallow mix into the ricebubbles, work quickly and spread throughout the rice bubbles.
Pour into the slice tray and sprinkle with your desired topping. Press down (I did it with piece of baking paper to avoid any colours transferring or sprinkles sticking to my fingers)
Leave to set on the bench for about 10-15 minutes, then slice.
Great for parties too! So do you think you'd make these for you or the kids? (Hubby and I ate our share, we'll just say that!) Think this is genius? Share with your friends!
