  1. This slice or variations has always been a favourite in our house.Whe kids were smaller I used to put a thin layer of peppermint icing coloured green on then choc icing. Was always known as “Toothpaste” cake!

  2. I’ve made this heaps now and it ALWAYS goes down a treat…it’s SO easy and fast too, that’s the best part (apart from the yummy taste)

    cheers

  3. I’d like to make what we used to call chocolate crackles but would like an up to date hopefully healthier recipe. They were made with Ricies or Cornflakes, but used that hard vegetable fat. Do you have such a recipe, please ?

  4. Feeling like something nice one day and this recipe popped in to my mind and I had looked for ages to find this recipe.
    With raising 6 children triple batches of this was made, with no crumbs left.
    It is a lovely yummy recipe.

  5. Have made this yummy slice many times. My kids used to love it soooo much. I got this recipe from a very old electric frying pan book many years ago. But since our move to the UK 6 years ago have not bothered to make it again.. Kids all move out now and want this slice recipe for themselves, but could not find it. Thank you so much!!!! They are going to love making it themselves.

  6. My mum used to make this all the time, but we called it Sydney Special. It’s delicious … and since leaving home I have managed to make it quite healthy. Only 60g of butter these days! Big win.

  7. Just made this, waiting for icing to set.
    It reminds me of one i usually make in the microwave, but without weetbix.
    :)

  8. My mum and aunt use to make this all the time was easy and evil hence I deleted the recipe, however since having children myself thought it would be a great treat for them to enjoy!!!So cheers its as scrummy as ever!!

  9. My kids dont like to use the bottom of the cereal packets so I empty all of them into one container and whenever I make a slice or biscuits that call for a cereal to be used I just dip into my never ending supply of ‘crumbs’.

  10. I use wholemeal flour for extra fibre and the kids don’t notice it, I ice it with a thick runny chocolate icing as soon as it is out of the oven, mark the pieces and once it cools I cut the pieces which is really easy. My mum made this all the time and called it “slam up” as she said it was great you slam all the ingredients together then slam in the oven, slam on icing and its done

  11. This Recipe is delicious! perfectly moist. I changed the recipe slightly, i didn’t have enough cocoa powder for the icing so i just drizzled chocolate over the top instead!
    YUM :)

  12. This is a great recipe that will go towards one of the best recipes of all time. A must to have if your a mum,aunty, nan etc who is always cooking for the whanau and need a quick n easy sweet that will feed everyone! double the recipe makes a perfect size for large whanau. A++

  13. I would like to make this slice but I would be interested to know if I could use carob instead of the chocolate as my brother doe not eat anything with cocoa. I do have some carob chips at home. Let me know someone.

  14. I’ve been making these choclate weetbix slices for years they are healthy as i didnt know some one else had the same recipe :)
