Date Bubble Slice

A really quick, very tasty recipe for you today. It's similar to the MOO LCM bars or the Mars Bar Slice but uses dates instead of the marshmallows or Mars Bars.

The recipe calls for butter, and butter really is better. You can substitute margarine if you have to, the slice won't be quite as rich tasting.

Date Bubble Slice

125g butter
1 cup dates, finely chopped (use scissors, it makes this job so much easier)
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
4 cups rice bubbles

Combine the butter, vanilla, dates and sugar in a saucepan. Bring to the boil over a medium heat. Simmer, stirring constantly, for five minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the rice bubbles. You need to be quick here and if your hands are clean use them to combine all the rice bubbles. Press into a baking paper lined slice tray. I roll the top of the slice with a wet glass to push it all down firmly. Set in the fridge. Cut into squares to serve.

You can  top this slice with a cream cheese frosting and sprinkle with toasted coconut if you want to but it's really, really good just as it is.

  1. This is my favourite slice of all time. I top mine with whipped cream, sliced banana that has been dipped in lemon juice and sprinkle with coconut...YUM! Try it Cath, you will love it :)

    1. Tania the slice never lasts long enough. I made a double recipe to take the photos, and hid one tray in the bottom of the fridge for visitors and they're both gone already! If I added whipped cream I doubt it would get out of the kitchen, Wayne and the boys would eat it straight from the baking tray :)
