Chewy and crispy cereal bars made with puffed rice and toffee, this is very easy and quick to make without any baking. Make these no-bake bars in 15 minutes and give them to the kids as a nice snack, or you can pop them in their lunchbox to take to school. Either way, a homemade treat is so much better than anything shop bought, so make sure you make enough because the kids (and even grown-ups in the house) will be coming back for them time and time again! This recipe makes a batch of 12 so you should have enough to keep the house going for a little while… Hopefully!

Ingredients

  • 227g packet chewy toffees
  • 125g (4oz) butter
  • 200g pack marshmallows
  • 200g (7oz) Rice Krispies
  • You will also need
  • :
  • 27 x 18cm (11 x 7in) tin, buttered

Method

  • Unwrap the toffees and put them in a bowl with the butter. Microwave on High for 2 mins (or put the toffees and butter in a pan and heat gently) until melted.

  • Stir mixture well, then add the marshmallows and microwave on High for 1 min or gently in the pan. Stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture is smooth.

  • Add the cereal and mix until it’s completely coated in the toffee mixture. Tip into the tin and press down to level surface. Cool for 15 mins.

  • Cut into 12. Cover the whole tin with cling film to take on the picnic. Or, alternatively, spoon into 12 paper cases and transport in a container.
