It is a great recipe for the school lunch box – or make a few and freeze it so you can grab it out anytime!

Now if you don’t have any Rice Bubbles on hand – you really can substitute them for any basic cereal.  I’ve made this recipe with Weetbix and Cornflakes and it has worked out just as well!

You can even turn this recipe into a dessert, just heat up a slice, top it with a bit of Chocolate or Caramel Sauce, and a great big scoop of vanilla ice cream – yum!

Perfect for a sometimes after school snack or morning tea with the girls!

  2. Combine all dry ingredients (except the icing sugar) in a mixing bowl.
