Marshmallow Bubble Bars

Hello again,

In my baking craze today I decided to re live my childhood by making these marshmallow bubble bars. Now my Mum believed in having healthy lunch boxes, we never had chip packets or roll ups or dunk a roos (oh how I loved those though). A treat we got very infrequently were those LCM bars. My primary school friend and I used to think LCM stood for lemon covered monkeys. We were 7.

At birthday parties we made those chocolate crackles, you know rice bubbles, chocolate and kremelta served in wee cupcake cases? Nom. But nothing with marshmallows.

I stumbled across this recipe one day and I saved it to my reading list on my phone. I had a weird and sudden desire to make these so off to new world I went in search of marshmallows and ricies.

This recipe is super easy, it has three ingredients. Although I did add a bit of vanilla essence and some pink food colouring to make it yummier and pinker.

Marshmallow Bubble Bars
(makes a whole heap)

4 cups ricies
200g pink and white marshmallows
60g butter

A Swiss roll or brownie tin lined with baking paper.

In a saucepan on a medium heat, melt together the butter and marshmallows and stir until smooth. Be careful not to burn the bottom of the pan.

Pour the marshmallow and butter melt mixture into a large mixing bowl containing the ricies. Stir quickly until evenly combined.

Transfer the mixture into the lined baking tray. Wet your hands slightly and press the mixture down into an even slab. Sprinkle over some 100s and 1000s if you wish.

Leave to set in the fridge for an hour or so before slicing and devouring.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge (if it lasts that long to be stored).

You could add some mini m&ms to this. That would be nom.

I hope this brings back blissful childhood memories.

Enjoy :)
