White Chocolate Crunchies (Rice Krispies)

Sometimes I don't feel like baking but I still crave a sweet treat, so this is the perfect antidote for me. An easy, no fuss, no bake all time favourite, rice krispies square. Works the same way as the famous rice krispies marshmallow squares except this one uses white chocolate to bind the cereal.


450g white chocolate (chopped)
50 g butter
125g puffed rice cereal
125 gram coconut flakes (dessicated coconut)

Line a 23cm (9in) square tin with non stick baking paper.
Place chocolate & butter in a heavy based saucepan over a very low heat, stirring often until melted.
Mix the rice cereal and coconut in a large bowl.
Pour in the melted chocolate and gently mix together. Please use the largest bowl you can find in your kitchen , so you will have room to mix the cereal & chocolate well without spilling them all over your kitchen counter.
Spoon mixture into the tin.
Press lightly with the back of a large spoon and level the top.
Leave to cool then chill for 30minutes. Remove from the tin and peel off the lining paper.
Cut into small squares and keep in an airtight container.
You wont be able to keep them very long though!
