Leonie’s Mum’s Rice Bubble Slice

Date Slice

Yum. It is very easy to eat too much Date Slice. However, for those concerned about portion control, just don’t make this recipe.

This is another recipe that my friend Leonie’s Mum used to make to put in her lunch box at school (see Leonie’s Mum’s Rice Bubble Slice for a similar recipe).

125 gm (4 oz) butter

3/4 C white sugar

1 C chopped dates

4 C Rice Bubbles

Place the butter, sugar and dates into a large saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring constantly. Mix in the Rice Bubbles, and press into a 7″ x 11″ slice tray. Cut into squares after about ten minutes (before refrigerating otherwise you will make hard work of cutting the slice).

125 gm (4 oz) butter

1/3 C sugar

3 Tblspns honey

4 C Rice Bubbles

1/2 C coconut

Place the butter, sugar and honey into a large saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring constantly. Mix in the Rice Bubbles and coconut, and press into a 7″ x 11″ slice tray. Cut into squares after ten minutes before refrigerating.
