Chocolate Bubble Squares

This recipe is from one of those really great little Women's Weekly recipe books that you used to see often at the supermarket checkout.. they're probably still around.  I have thousands.  I have just tweaked it so it is gluten free.  Great for kids parties and really popular - I have been asked for the recipe a few times so here it is.

125g butter, melted
1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten lightly
1 cup GF rice bubbles (I use Freedom Foods Rice Puffs)
3/4 cup desiccated coconut
1 cup GF SR Flour 
1/4 cup GF cocoa powder (I use Nestle)

bubble topping (combine all in a separate medium bowl)
200g milk chocolate Melts, melted
125g butter, melted
1 cup GF rice bubbles

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius
Grease 26cm x 32cm Swiss roll pan; line base and two long sides with baking paper, extending paper 2cm above edge of pan.
Combine butter, sugar and eggs in bowl; stir in rice puffs coconut and sifted dry ingredients; spread into prepared pan.  Bake for 25 minutes or until firm; cool in pan.  Spread with bubble topping.  Cover, refrigerate until set before cutting into squares.

  1. this is a great idea and i am going to try it! u r a legend miss tara and you should do up a cookbook suitable for cafes, truckstops, households generally and tuckshops etc...where people requiring GF don't have to just have something boring or the same thing all the time...years ago i found that with fat free (the fat is no longer free tho it's all here on my hips) it was so difficult as fat is included in everything and i got so sick of salads and veges... trinette xxx
