Chocolate Weetbix Slice



Food can be like a time warp, transporting you back to childhood or an important moment in your life.

Having my son at home, he loves to do "making"a.k.a baking. So lately we have been taking a step back to my childhood and making all of those slices and biscuits that I would make with my mother. 

Almost every kiwi kid has eaten this chocolate weetbix slice at some point. It's great to add to my son's lunchbox as well as ours. Or as morning tea for those visitors coming to meet the baby. 

Ingredients

180g butter
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 cup dessicated coconut
3 weetbix, crushed
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa

Chocolate icing
2 cups icing sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1 tbsp milk, add a little at a time until you have the right consistency.

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius.
  2. Sift together all dry ingredients in a bowl
  3. Melt butter, make a well in the centre of dry ingredients and combine.
  4. Press firmly into a slice tin, and then bake for 15mins. Try not to overcook or it will become rock hard. 
  5. Make chocolate icing to top and sprinkle with extra coconut once the slice has cooled.
