Tips for making Puffed Rice Bars

  • Make sure to press down firmly with parchment paper so that they stick together (and not on your hands).
  • Refrigerate the bars for the full hour so they become firm.
  • Use a sharp knife to cut through the bars.
  • Once cut, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator to help keep their shape.
  • You can drizzle melted chocolate on the bars. My husband is a purist and doesn’t like the chocolate.  You can also stir in some chocolate chips to turn these into a fun kid-friendly dessert.
