Sweet treats to make this weekend
Have you ever wondered why someone would ever think of adding air into rice, to form a rice bubble? Well, Mr William Kellogg thought he would give it a try in the 1920s, to create a healthy breakfast cereal that no one had ever seen before. It is astounding really, that we are still eating them today! According to the Kelloggs website, they take rice grains and steam them, add sugar, salt, vitamins and minerals, then send them through big rolling pins and into a hot oven, where they are puffed into their Rice Bubble shape.

As well as being a favourite breakfast cereal for generations, you can also use Rice Bubbles in delicious sweet treats. Here are three recipes that our family uses for snacks, parties and family get-togethers. What is your favourite Rice Bubble recipe?

Everyone loves Rice Bubbles!

1/ Rice Bubble, Peanut Butter & Choc Balls

Ingredients: 1 and 1/3 cups Rice Bubbles, 400g dates, 100g smooth peanut butter, 80g granulated nuts, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 150g Nestle Choc Bits.

In a food processor, add the dates, peanut butter, nuts and vanilla and process until combined (it will appear crumbly). Spoon the date mixture into a bowl and pour in the Rice Bubbles. Stir to combine. Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl at 30-second intervals until smooth, then pour over the mixture. Moving quickly while it is warm, stir the chocolate through the mixture. As it cools, roll into balls (don't worry if you squash the Rice Bubbles). If the mixture doesn't hold together, melt more chocolate and repeat the last step.

2/ Chocolate Crackle Bites with Sprinkles

Ingredients: 4 cups Rice Bubbles, 1 cup icing sugar, 1 cup desiccated coconut, 250g block of copha (chopped), 3 Tablespoons cocoa, 2 tablespoons sprinkles.

In a large bowl, combine the Rice Bubbles, icing sugar, cocoa and coconut. In a saucepan, melt the copha over low heat and then allow to cool. Pour into the Rice Bubbles mixture and stir to combine. Lightly spray a mini muffin tin with oil and spoon mixture into each hole, then scatter with sprinkles and refrigerate until firm.

3/ Rice Bubble & Date Biscuits

Ingredients: 1 cup self-raising flour, 1 cup Rice Bubbles, 1 cup desiccated coconut, 1/2 cup chopped dates (or sultanas), 3/4 cup caster sugar, 2/3 cup vegetable oil and 1 egg.

Preheat oven to 160 degrees. Line baking trays with baking paper. In a bowl combine all the ingredients. Roll mixture into tablespoon-sized balls and place them on the baking trays, leaving space for them to spread. Bake for 10 - 15 minutes or until golden and crispy.

The humble Rice Bubble can now be used in a variety of different ways, which I'm sure Mr Kellogg never dreamed of when he first invented them! Which Rice Bubble recipe is your family favourite?
