Honey Rice Bubble Slice

Variations

Chocolate Rice Bubble Slice

Instead of using plain rice bubbles in this recipe, switch them out for cocoa pops to make a chocolate rice bubble slice! Follow the rest of the recipe the same and after cutting the slice drizzle or dunk one side into dark chocolate.

Marshmallow Rice Bubble Slice

Rice Bubble slice is the New Zealand version of Rice Krispie Treats which are made with marshmallow. To make this slice with melted marshmallows, remove the sugar and honey, reduce the butter by half and add 180g of marshmallows to the saucepan with the butter. Melt completely and mix into the rice bubbles.

Rice Bubble Slice without Honey

To make this slice without honey simply switch it out for the same amount of golden syrup, maple syrup, agave or corn syrup. Using something other than honey will give the slice a slightly different flavour but will still be delicious!
