Biscuits and snack bars recipes with puffed rice
For breakfast, or as a snack, biscuits and puffed rice bars are always a healthy and appetizing option, and the recipes for preparing them are really simple. For the base of the biscuits just a few ingredients are enough, besides rice: a knob of butter, a spoonful of flour, a spoonful of sugar and an egg. Preparation time is also really fast: only 10 minutes. If, on the other hand, you don’t want to turn on the oven, we recommend making some snack bars. Just melt some chocolate, mix it with the puffed rice and then let the mixture cool. To make these desserts even more delicious, you just need a little imagination: add chopped coconut, colored sugars, dried fruit to the dough or, perhaps, serve them with cream or chocolate ganache.
Puffed rice cakes
With puffed rice you can also revisit traditional recipes to make them even more tempting and light. For example, you can use puffed rice instead of biscuits in chocolate salami, or combine it with the classic Sbrisolona shortcrust pastry. Furthermore, puffed rice is great for the crunchy base of creamy desserts like cheesecake. In this case, also, you can unleash your creativity: garnish the cake with red fruits, flavor the cream cheese with pistachio, lemon or coffee.
