RECIPE: Weet-Bix Slice for the Afternoon Tea Win

Finally guys, we’ve found something to do with Weet-Bix crumbs! And if your kids (like mine) have declared they don’t want Weet-Bix anymore, don’t tell them. I promise they’ll be none the wiser!

My kids are fickle beings. One minute they’re all over breakfast cereal and then.. they’re not. Alas, there HAS to be something to do with it all. So without further ado, first delicious cab off the cereal rank is Weet-Bix slice. YUM. It’s nestled somewhere between a slice and cake and is mighty delicious. The kids don’t have to know it has Weet-Bix in it!

    Re the weetbix slice my Mum couldn’t eat coconut so she used more weetbix
    or added 2 tablespoons of Milo, drinking chocolate or chocolate Milo.
    She also added dried mixed fruit to the mixture or you could just add one.
    She also added 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence which acts as a preservative.
    The original recipe my Mum was given had marshmallow on the top
    instead of icing and no fruit at all. We found that way too sweet compared
    to dried fruit, even with icing on the top
    In an air tight container it freezes well. It was a family favourite for many
    years. It was a “crime” if my nieces visited and there was no Weetbix slice.
    They didn’t care if it didn’t have any icing on it.
    We also found that if you let it cook until the top is hard, it is even harder
    when it is cold – also hard to bite and chew.
