Recipe: Easy chocolate Weetbix slice

Easy and delicious.

This slice is a tried and true family favourite and takes half an hour from start to finish. It’s great for lunch boxes. Make a big batch and pop half in the freezer.

3 Weetbix, crushed
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon golden syrup
1 cup coconut
1 cup self raising flour
2 tablespoons cocoa, heaped
140 grams butter

1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 tablespoon cocoa
1 cup icing mixture
1 tablespoon milk or water to combine

Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees celsius. In a large bowl, mix the crushed Weetbix, coconut, flour and cocoa. Melt the butter (in the microwave or stovetop), then mix in the golden syrup and vanilla. Mix the butter mix and the dry ingredients. Line a small slice tin with baking paper or silicone baking sheet. Press the mixture into the tin. Place in the oven and cook for 10-12 minutes. It’s ready when little mounds form. To make icing, melt the butter then mix in the cocoa. Add the icing mixture and mix. Slowly add small amounts of milk or water until it’s a spreadable consistency. Ice while warm and sprinkle with coconut or 100s and 1000s.
