Chocolate Weetbix Slice Recipe

Weet BIx Slice

Weet BIx SliceThe kids loved this slice. It is easy to make and uses basic pantry ingredients. You wouldn’t have to ice it, if you were worried about the sugar content in the icing.

It makes a great lunch box snack, but if you want it to last for more than a couple of days, you should double the ingredient quantities. I will be next time!

6. Line a slice tray with baking paper and firmy press the ingredients into it.

7. Bake for about 15 minutes until the slice starts to colour slightly on top.

8. Let the slice cool for about 15 minutes. You can actually ice this slice when it is warm though and I kept it in slice tray, so it was easier to do.

9. Sift cocoa and icing sugar into a bowl (I didn’t and had to work to get the lumps out, better to sift it first!).

10. Pour in milk and stir to create a thickish icing.

11. I used a spatula to spread the icing evenly across the slice.

12. Then sprinkle coconut on top and allow to set.

13. It will take an hour or so to set fully, then you can cut it into pieces for the lunchbox.

14. I cut the Weet Bix slice into 12 pieces.

15. Store in an airtight container for the very small amount of time it will be in the house!

    Oh yum! Thanks for reminding me of this morish recipe i have not made this slice for years.With my family i will have to times it by ten. Going to bake this when i finish typing

    I have this recipe, it is great. I put it in a ceramic baking dish and cook it in the microwave for about 6 min on med-high. It is quick enough to make in the morning and have ready to go in the lunch box before school (but let it cook a little before cutting or it will just crumble. I never ice it and the kids still love it anyway.

    I also substitute the coconut for quick oats as my daughter has a child in her class with an allergy to coconut. I have made a variation with a little less sugar and a touch of cinnamon instead of cocoa and that is nice too. It is a very versatile recipe.

    ThX for this Nic. I’ve got a 4 yo daughter anaphylactic to eggs, nuts did dairy and it is always SO hard to find a recipe that she can have. Im always on the lookout and then i came across this. I ended up making this recipe this afternoon with Miss 4 and substituted the butter for Nuttelex and used (no dairy traces) cocoa. Miss 4 loved…loved being able to help cook this and to know that at the end she can have a great big slice of it!

    Thanks

    Ann

      Thanks for letting me know the substitutions you made Ann. I know that you aren’t the only one with a child with those allergies, so it is great to know it can be tweaked to suit!

    Thanks for another great recipe. I have just whipped up a double batch that is in the oven now. School lunch snack sorted :-)

    Thanks Nicole, I’ve been looking for a recipe like this. Everything was in the pantry ready to go. I doubled the recipe and made two, one with icing and one without. Keeps well and has ensured we’ve had snacks all week!
