Vintage Rice Krispie Squares Recipe

I have 3 whole lovely relaxing days off work this week… sheer bliss!

I spent this morning cleaning out the chickens and I made these this afternoon 🙂

This is the original recipe… from a 1970’s Rice Krispie packet.

  • 3 cups Rice Krispies
  • 4 tbsp golden syrup
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp butter/marg
  • few drops of vanilla or almond essence

Put syrup, sugar and butter/marg into a pan, melt and bring to the boil for 1 min (stirring).
Remove from heat, add essence and Krispies.
Mix well and pour into a greased 7″ square tin. Mark into squares and remove from the tin when cold.
Alternatively, divide mixture between 12 cake cases in a bun tin.
Put in the fridge to set.

Not suitable for freezing, but will keep for a few days in an air-tight tub.
