Pecan & Rice Pops Bars

Like mother like son! ha! My boy was asking for some sweet treat a couple of days back. And here's what I made for him. Something small and not too heavy but sweet and flirty. Frankly, I prefer having this kind of bars & slices than having a big slice of cake. Not too filling and just nice for the crave.

Ingredients for Bottom Crust :
180gm butter, softened
1 tspn vanilla extract
1/3 cup sugar (90gm)
250gm all purpose flour

Method :
(1) cream butter, vanilla and sugar untill fluffy.
(2) fold in flour and mix to form a soft dough.
(3) press dough to a 9" square pan, lined with greaseproof paper.
(4) bake at 180'c preheated oven for about 25 mins.

Ingredients for Rice Pops Caramel :
120gm butter
1 can (450gm) condensed milk
2 tbsp syrup
1 cup rice pops

* 2/3 cup crashed roasted pecan

Method :
(1) combine butter, condensed milk and syrup in a sauce pan.
(2) leave to cook untill thicken or for about 15 mins.
(3) fold in rice pops and mix well.
(4) pour the mixture over to the shortbread base.
(5) bake at 180'c preheated oven for about 10 mins.
(6) spread on the roasted crashed pecan.
(7) leave to cool completely and then keep refrigerated untill set before slicing.

A 9 inches tray of bake goodie !!! How long do you think this can last? Not long for sure. Actually, I hold up half of them and store it somewhere safe for the next day. This sounds terrible, isn't it! haha... They're safe from the kids but not ME. lol ! ^_^

  21. Kristy, I can just imagine how good these are!! I do the same when I know I can't stop myself or others from gulping down everything in one day. I freeze some portions! Although, some treats are still good frozen, so I don't know how good that does...

  22. Kristy, you did it again. Another fabulous recipe. This is one that would go over, in my house. I love what you bake and cook.

    Thanks for linking this to My Meatless Mondays.

    Your pal - Chaya

  23. These look wonderful, it really makes me want to enjoy one right now and I don't even really like nuts in my desserts! :D

    So what does your daughter like...if your son has the sweet tooth?

  24. Kumi : haha.... I think it's pretty hard when we come to something so addictive!

    Chaya : You're welcome and glad you like it too.

    Lyndz : My daughter, she loves anything I cook & bake, unlike my boy. He's more picky than his sister. So I have no problem making her food.

    Thanks so much for spending you time here with me, ladies.
    Hope you're all having a great day.
    Cheers, Kristy
