Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
8 ounces Copha
8 ounces Icing sugar

* A traditional Australian sweet snack -- Mention this recipe to an Australian abroad and he will instantly get homesick. Yield: serves 6.

* Rice Bubbles are called Rice Krispies in North America. Icing sugar is confectioner's sugar. Sultanas are like raisins. Copha, it would appear, is utterly unavailable outside Australia. It is a partially-solidified shortening made of coconut oil.

: Difficulty: easy if you can get the ingredients.

: Time: 5 minutes preparation, 1 hour cooling.

: Precision: approximate measurement OK.
