Rice Crispy Cakes | The Healthier Twist

We have decided to give this classic treat a healthy twist. With only a few ingredients, its easy to make and will satisfy your sweet tooth!

We also have a range of flavoured chocolate bars to choose from including white, mint and orange chocolate if you want to make them a little more flavoursome.

SERVES: Makes 12-16 small squares
PREP TIME: 15 minutes
SET TIME: 20 minutes

INGREDIENTS
– 150g / 2 x 75g packets of Free’ist sugar free marshmallows
– 3 cups / 100g unsweetened rice puffs
– 3 tbsp coconut oil
For a chocolate version:
– 225g (3 x 75g bars) Free’ist chocolate of choice

METHOD
1. In a large saucepan melt the coconut oil over a low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir continuously until they melt together  creating a fluffy mallow mixture!

2. If you are making a chocolate version, whilst you prepare the marshmallows, melt your chocolate by placing the broken pieces in a bowl and put over a  saucepan of water with a medium heat. The hot water should heat the bowl and melt the chocolate. Stir  until the chocolate is a liquid consistency. Remove from the heat.

3. Remove the marshmallow mixture from the heat and add the rice puffs to the pan, stirring through to evenly coat the puffs with the marshmallow mixture. If you are making a chocolate version, add the chocolate and stir again until chocolate is evenly distributed.

4. In a small greased baking tin (18x20cm is perfect) pour your rice-puff mixture and spread to a height of 5-6cm. Try not to press the mixture down too hard, to keep the lightness of the marshmallow in each square.

5. Leave to set for 20mins at room temperature. With a sharp knife cut into squares. You can keep these in an air-tight container for 3 days.

Thanks to Vicky at The Flourishing Pantry for co-creation.

Free’ist attends Tesco NI Food show

The Free’ist team attended Custom House Square in Belfast as local crowds piled in to taste local produce, engage with foodie businesses, watch cooking demonstrations, listen to music and much more.

Around 20,000 people attended the show which lasted the whole weekend, as the team communicated directly with customers and delivered information about the products to people who were interested in adapting a healthier lifestyle and also with many diabetics/celiacs.

The event was said to be “Northern Ireland’s biggest celebration of local favourites” and regular customers and also members of society which were new to the products were very impressed with the extensive range in which we have to offer.
