Remote learning 4.0 is happening in our house this week and one of the school tasks was to create a recipe, make it and write it up.

So we decided to make a homemade version of one of the most loved school lunchbox treats. We call these Birthday Cake Rice Pop Bars.

They can be made with one bowl, a saucepan and a spatula. Perfect for the kids to make on the weekend as a treat.


4 cup of gluten free rice puffs or rice bubbles
125g butter
125g honey
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence or extract
2 tablespoons sprinkles
1/4 cup of pumpkin and sunflower seed mix
1/4 cup desiccated coconut


Grease and line a slice tray with baking paper

1. Measure out all the dry ingredients into a large bowl and mix together well

2. Melt the butter, honey and vanilla in a saucepan

3. Mix the melted butter mix into the dry ingredients and mix together well.

4. Press into a greased and lined slice tin. Make sure its all smoothed out

5. Refrigerate for a couple of hours until quite firm. You can also place into the freezer.

6. Cut into bars and keep refrigerated in an air tight container for a week, but i don’t think they will last that long.

You can add anything into the mixture you like. I made these nut free for school lunch boxes, but you can add in peanut butter, chocolate chips, dried fruit whatever you love.
