When it comes to simple no bake desserts, my favorite recipes to make are millionaire shortbread, chocolate oatmeal bars, and this Caramilk slice. 

No bake desserts are one of my favorites to make. Not only do they not require turning on an oven or a stovetop, they usually need just a handful of ingredients. Recently, I’ve been obsessed with making slices, or more formally known as dessert bars.

A popular dessert throughout Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom, slices are sweet bars that are made with a combination of cereals, grains, sweeteners, and a plethora of toppings or fillings. Personally, I love ones made with cereal and yield a sweet and crunchy bar. Recently, I’ve been obsessed with making slices using Caramilk chocolate!

I’ve been meaning to share a Caramilk slice recipe for quite some time. It is one of my favorite no bake desserts, and it uses just 4 ingredients! Now, this Caramilk no bake slice may look incredibly fancy, but I promise you, it is such a simple recipe, you could make it in your sleep!

No butter, no marshmallows, and no oil are needed, but you’d never tell. The texture is crispy, crunchy, and topped with a firm Caramilk frosting. It’s sweet and with a subtle Caramilk flavor, without being overpowering.

I had some friends over for afternoon tea and served them this slice and NO ONE believed me when I told them it had no condensed milk or butter in them- They loved how crispy they remained!

How do you make a Caramilk slice?

The Ingredients

  • Rice crispies/Rice bubbles– Any rice bubble-like cereal can be used. To keep it gluten free, use brown rice crispy cereal. 
  • Cadbury Caramilk– Either the actual chocolate bar or the Cadbury Caramilk baking chips. 
  • Maple syrup– If you have access to brown rice syrup or honey, those can also be used. 
  • Peanut butter– Smooth and creamy peanut butter, with no added sugar. To keep it nut free, use smooth tahini or sunflower seed butter. 
  • White chocolate– Optional, but to swirl through the Caramilk topping on the slice. I used vegan white chocolate chips. 

The Instructions

Start by adding the rice cereal into a large mixing bowl and set aside. In a microwave safe bowl or stovetop, add the chocolate, maple syrup, and peanut butter and heat until melted. Once melted, pour the mixture over the cereal and mix well, until most of the cereal is coated. Next, transfer into a lined 9 x 13-inch pan and refrigerate it.

Now, in a microwave safe bowl, combine extra peanut butter and Caramilk chocolate and melt together. Whisk until combined, and spread over the top of the slice. If desired, swirl through melted vegan white chocolate for aesthetic purposes.

Tips to make the best no bake Caramilk slice

  • Be sure to keep a firm eye on the chocolate when it is melting, as it can go from firm to melted VERY fast. 
  • If you want an even sweeter slice, replace the peanut butter with Lotus Biscoff spread.
  • For a vegan Caramilk slice, replace the Caramilk chocolate with a vegan white chocolate bar. 

Storing and freezing Caramilk rice bubble slice

  • To store: Caramilk slice will keep well at room temperature, covered, for up to 2 weeks. Store it in the refrigerator if you’d like them to keep longer. 
  • To freeze: Place the leftover slices in a ziplock bag and store them in the freezer for up to 6 months.

    1. Hi!
      Can I use Lily’s chocolate/baking chips? I’m thinking a combo of the milk and white to sub for the Caramilk chips, but maybe just milk will do? Any thoughts?

    2. We don’t have Caramilk Chips in Canada 🙁
      I even tried searching Amazon for them. Your recipe sounds good and I was excited to try it.

    3. For those of us not from Canada can you explain caramilk? I see several versions of something called caramilk chocolate bar. Thanks!

    4. Hi, you can skip my question. If I’d have bothered to notice you were in Australia I would have had my answer. Thanks!

      1. Don’t be silly- MJ, I checked and you can use any chocolate that has a caramel flavor to it, or a mix of white and milk chocolate 🙂

    5. Okay so I just made a batch with Lily’s:
      equal parts white chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, and chocolate salted caramel chips. For the frosting I omitted the milk chocolate chips.
      It’s chilling now 😬 We’ll see!!
