This easy Weet-Bix Slice recipe is perfect for the entire family!
Whenever I want to make a chocolate treat for the kids, I turn to either my Nan’s Chocolate Cake or this easy Weet-Bix Slice recipe. Both are super simple to make (you only need one bowl to mix it all together), they are freezer friendly (yes, even when iced!) and they satisfy our chocolate cravings.
So while this certainly isn’t the healthiest recipe going around, when it comes to treats, I’d much prefer the kids eat something that we have made versus something we’ve purchased from a store that is full of ingredients we don’t recognise. If you are looking to make this Weet-Bix Slice that little bit better for the kids, then you can easily omit the chocolate icing and just eat it as is.
Regardless of whether you do decide to ice this slice or not, make sure you leave it to cool completely before icing or cutting into pieces, otherwise you might end up with a crumbly, chocolate mess – although that might not be an entirely bad thing!! To help speed up the cooling process, you can pop the slice (while it’s still in the tin) into your fridge or freezer.
