Golden Syrup Puffed Rice Cereal Squares

2017 Update: Due to a problem with Photobucket, see here, there will be a lot of recipes without photos. I will be slowly redoing the recipe pages, as best I can, but many other posts will be impossible to replace. I’m doing this in my own time, while continuing to update the blog with new recipes and posts. If you’d like to donate, any amount appreciated, you can do so here. The site will always be free, the recipes will never be locked behind a paywall, but this is a lot of additional work. I’m not demanding or begging, just putting it there so if you feel like repaying my hard work you have that option. I don’t make any money from the site, all that I do here is to help others, I couldn’t charge for that.

Not being able to eat anything with gelatin is a pain, these help.

Going back over old recipes it can be hard to recall what it was like. Often I haven’t made these recipes in a long time, I have nearly five hundred, give or take, no matter what I can’t keep them in all in rotation. I remember these sugar, gooey crunchy treats all too well. I only made them once or twice but if you’re craving Rice Krispie Treats without the gelatin then these are worth your while. They’re just the right kind of sticky saccharin that will satisfy any sweet-tooth cravings.

105g Puffed Rice Cereal
80g Golden Syrup
20g Sugar
15g Butter
A Dash Vanilla Extract


1. Put Syrup, Sugar and Butter in a pot and turn the heat to high, let melt, once melted bring to the boil whilst stirring and boil for a minute. Mixture will be golden and will bubble up.

2. Once the minute is up remove from the heat and add the Vanilla Extract and then stir in the Cereal and mix until everything is coated and sticky.

3. Scoop the mixture into either a greased pan or a silicone mold, then press down firmly. Leave in the fridge to set completely.
