.Thermomix Cooking: Chocolate Weetbix Slice.

This slice is my favourite.  It tastes amazing with a great crunchy texture, is simple to make and lasts for awhile (if you don't eat it first!) and I guess you could justify this slice as being healthy with all that weetbix, right?!  I used this recipe from Taste, but didn't make as much icing and sprinkled with 100s and 1000s instead of rainbow choc chips.  A great slice for the lunchbox as it is nice and firm and the icing sets completely so it travels well.

Chocolate Weetbix Slice
170g weetbix
200g butter
30g cocoa
170g brown sugar
40g coconut
1 egg

Place weetbix in Thermo bowl.  Crush on speed 9 for 5 seconds.  Remove from bowl and set aside.
Place butter into Thermo bowl. Heat on 50 degrees, speed 1 for 2 minutes or until melted.
Add weetbix, cocoa, brown sugar, coconut and egg to bowl. Mix well on speed 4 for 30 seconds.
Press into a lined slice tin.  Bake in moderate oven for 15-20 minutes until firm to touch.
Cool and ice with chocolate icing.

To make chocolate icing:
Mix 2 cups icing sugar, 2 Tbs cooca, 1 Tbs soft butter and enough boiling water to give a smooth consistency.

Thanks Toni! I think I might make this for our weekly outing to the park. Plenty of willing test subjects. ;)

Looks delicious! I love the thought of the combination between chocolate and weetabix. It sounds intriguing.

For us North Americans, what are Weetbix?


My Mum 60 years ago used to make this , No icing on it, but she made home made marshmallow, and put it on just as it was almost cooled . cut in squares , dust the icing sugar, the marshmallow. Yummo try eating just one piece. Must make some for the grandies.

Thanks for sharing the recipe! I don't use my thermomix enough these days, but I've made this slice twice this week! Once with sprinkles for the kids, and i'm making a batch with coconut sprinkled on the icing to take to work for morning tea tomorrow. It's easy and delicious!!

Just letting you know that I made this and I think that ou might have missed an ingredient in it. It is very very buttery and I didn't think that it looked right so I pulled out the old Women's weekly slice book and they also have SR Flower added

This recipe is great as is Do Not add flour! Just take it put of the oven when you can smell it and then let it set and cool. Shouldn't have listened to the comme ts as out after dinner treat last night was ruined. Im going back to following the original recipe.
