An oldie but a goodie. You can't beat this classic Weetbix Slice, covered in chocolate icing.
Servings: 24 pieces
- 3 weetbix (or 55 grams of another similar wheat-based cereal)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup SR flour
- 1 cup coconut
- 1 teaspoon cocoa
- 125 grams butter
- 1 1/2 cups icing sugar
- 1 tablespoon cocoa
- 1 tablespoon butter (15 grams)
- 1-2 tablespoon boiling water
Pre-heat oven to moderate (I use 170 degrees celsius, fan-forced).
Grease a slice tin (approx 26 x 16 cm) and line with baking paper, leaving excess on the sides to lift out slice once cooked.
Crush weetbix into a bowl.
Add remaining dry ingredients to bowl and stir to combine.
Melt butter and add to dry ingredients. Mix well.
Press mixture into slice tin with hands and even the top surface using the back of a spoon.
Cook for 20 minutes.
Start preparing the icing a few minutes before the slice is ready to be removed from the oven. This slice is iced while hot from the oven.
Sift icing sugar and cocoa into a bowl.
Add 1 tablespoon of the boiling water to the butter and allow butter to melt.
Add melted butter mixture to icing sugar and mix well.
Add a little extra boiling water if necessary so the icing is soft enough to spread. Spread the icing over the slice while still hot.
Allow to cool completely before lifting from the tin using the baking paper and slicing into 24 pieces.
