Homemade LCM Bars in the Thermomix
I know I’ve been sharing a lot of lunchbox recipes lately but I’m really trying to give my children some variety so I’m trying out lots of ideas. These homemade LCM bars have been a huge success. They’re so quick and easy to make I know I will never buy the commercial variety again.
A quick and easy alternative to the commercially prepared LCM bar.
- 5 cups rice bubbles
- 100 gm butter
- 200 gm pink and white marshamllows
- 1 tsp vanilla paste
- 50 gm white chocolate
- 2 Tbs coloured chocolate buttons
Prepare a slice tin with baking paper.
Place butter, marshmallow and vanilla in TM bowl. Melt 5 min/90 degrees/Speed 2.
Add rice bubbles to the marshmallow. Combine 30 sec/Speed 2 (Reverse blade)
Pour the marshmallow mixture into the prepared slice tray. Flatten the slice down with a plastic spatula.
Melt the chocolate in a microwave for 50 sec. Stir then heat again for 20 seconds.
Drizzle the LCM slice with white chocolate and top with the colour chocolate buttons.
Refrigerate 2-3 hours or until set.
Slice into bars.
Keep LCM bars refrigerated until required.
When my daughter tried the bars she said they were exactly the same as the bought LCM’s. I like to use salted butter and vanilla as you get that delicious “sweet and salty” flavour. I decorated these bars with melted chocolate and mini smarties so they’re not exactly a health food. On a positive note, at least I know what ingredients are in them. Next time I make these I’m going to vary the ingredients and add some nuts and dried cranberries.
I decided to decorate these bars with melted chocolate and mini smarties to give them extra lunchbox appeal. However, they’re not exactly a health food and would probably be classified a “sometimes food” at best.
On a positive note, at least I know what ingredients are in them. Next time I make these I’m going to vary the ingredients and add some nuts and dried cranberries. They still won’t really be healthy but I think the flavour would be fabulous.
Initially, I used to make these bars on the stove but the Thermomix makes everything so much easier. If you’ve tried these by hand before and cursed you will be pleasantly surprised at how easy the Thermomix makes the process.
