recipe :: emergency slice!

This is not so much a recipe, but a set of loose guidelines to follow when faced with the realisation that  you are supposed to be providing "a plate" for afternoon tea at a playgroup that starts in about an hour...

Step One - forget the oven
Step Two - check the pantry for cereal
Step Three - put the cereal and whatever else you can find in a bowl

Step Four - bind it together with melted chocolate of any kind (block, bars, chips, dark, milk, white, whatever) then squish it into a lined cake tin
Step Five - Put it in the fridge for 20 minutes
Step Six - Chop it up - non square bits are for the "chef" - there will be lots!

Step Seven - Arrange on a plate and be all "it was no trouble, anytime"

Crisis averted!

Here is what I made mine from, but just about everything could be substituted (I wouldn't use Weet-Bix, though)!

2 cups Rice Bubbles
1 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup desiccated coconut
1/4 cup slivered almonds
400g white chocolate melts

You must work well under pressure Nic. A slice that looks that good in under an hour......very clever!

That's a great idea - I often get caught running around at the last minute for a plate.
