  1. Step 1

    Grease and line the base and sides of a 20cm (base measurement) square cake pan, with baking paper, allowing 2 sides to overhang.

    Put the rice bubbles in a large bowl. Place the butter, sugar and honey in a heavy-based saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, for 5 mins or until butter melts and mixture is well combined. Simmer for 3 mins or until mixture turns a light caramel colour and starts to thicken. Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla and salt.

    Pour the hot honey mixture over the rice bubbles and stir until well combined. Transfer mixture to lined pan, spreading evenly and pressing down with a greased spatula or the base of a glass.

    Place in the fridge for 45 mins or until firm.

  5. Step 5

    Remove from the pan and cut into squares.

Rice crispy treats recipe

Looking for a very easy slice to make, that’s deliciously sweet, crunchy and chewy, and fun too? With just five main ingredients, this no-bake rice crispy treat recipe is perfect. Rice crispy treats are great, bite-sized snacks for parties and special occasions, plus they’re a great way to use up rice cereal. Enjoy these sweet treats plain, or top with chocolate and sprinkles for some extra fun and colour. This recipe is a great one to get creative with – rice bubbles are a blank canvas! Kids will love decorating these easy little squares.

How to make rice crispy treats

These rice crispy treats are so simple – just melt, mix and chill! Melt then briefly cook the butter, honey and sugar, to create a sweet, sticky mixture, then combine with the rice bubbles. Press into a pan, flatten the top, and pop into the fridge to set.

Fun ways to decorate rice crispy treats

After cooling and cutting the slice, we’ve drizzled individual squares with melted white chocolate and decorated each one with colourful sprinkles. It’s a bright, fun way to serve these up. You could also drizzle with yoghurt, melted dark chocolate or coloured writing icing instead, or dip the top of each square into melted chocolate before decorating. You can use all kinds of sprinkles and small lollies, or thinly slice fresh fruits like strawberries, cherries, peaches or plums to lay on top of the squares. Dried fruit like apricots, cranberries or sultanas would work great as well, especially with yoghurt or white chocolate.

For special occasions, try adding a tiny bit of edible food colouring to the honey mixture before pouring over the cereal – for example, add green food colouring for Christmas or St Patrick’s Day. The amount you need will depend on the colouring you use and what depth of colour you are looking for. There’s no limit to the fun you can have decorating these, but this golden, crispy-chewy slice is also delicious just as it is.
