I was recently in Australia and hit by a wave of nostalgia for the cuisine of my childhood. It’s no surprise to me that I began to lose a lot of weight when I left Perth, my childhood diet consisted of Chicken Treat Hot Chicken Rolls and cheese sausages.
There are some days however, that having a moderate sampling of childhood treats can do wonders for the soul. My Mum is very ill at the moment and it’s been a tough time. This DIY is dedicated to her and a childhood spent eating Kellogg’s LCMs. These are my DIY version of the popular lunchbox treat.
Now you’re going to see many more simple non-bake food DIYs on the site soon, especially food for gifts that can also be packaged nicely into pretty boxes. My apartment has a hopeless oven that even my pastry-chef cousin Paula could not manage to bake well in when she visited. So all recipes will be simple and non-bake.
You will need:
250g pink and white marshmallows
185g white eating chocolate
5 cups of Rice Bubbles
1) Chop your marshmallows in half and break your chocolate up:
2. Take a baking tray and line with baking paper.
3. Combine marshmallows and chocolate into a medium saucepan; stir on low heat until it looks like this:
4. Have your Rice Bubbles on stand by and stir into the mixing bowl the marshmallow/chocolate mixture. You’ll need to move really fast here and be quite forceful as the marshmallow dries super quickly:
5. Press the mixture firmly with a flat spatula into the baking tray, you can even smooth the surface with wet hands (I didn’t do it here due to time constraints):
6. Refrigerate for 3 hours and then cut into squares.
This blog is dedicated to Mummy Heng (above, on her wedding day), that she may make a speedy recovery from her stroke. She never was very good at making cakes and slices but boy did she teach me everything else I know about DIY! Love you, Mum.
