Chocolate Caramel Weetbix Slice

This image is made to the recipe but for a thicker caramel layer then increase the topping ingredients to 1 1/2 times the recipe.

 

Ingredients

  • 3 weetbix, crushed
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 125g butter, melted
  • 200g (1/2 tin) sweetened condensed milk (use a little more if you like)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 1 cup dark chocolate melts (or use chocolate icing)

Method

Preheat oven to 180 C.  Place all dry ingredients in a bowl. Mix in melted butter and press into a lined  slice tin.
Bake for 15 minutes. Stir condensed milk, butter, golden syrup in a saucepan over a low heat until butter is melted.  Pour caramel onto the base and return to oven for 5 minutes.   Allow to sit for a couple of minutes and then cover with a layer of chocolate melts.  Once melts have melted then gently smooth with a knife.  Alternatively you can allow caramel to cool until just warm and then ice with chocolate icing.

  1. Our family loves caramel so we were keen to try this. We think you need almost double the caramel or 1/2 the base. Otherwise delicious! Tell Tony no one coughed due to the weetbix :-)

  2. This is delicious! I made it in a 23x33cm slice tin and felt that the amount of caramel was enough as per recipe (leaves half a tin to make some choc chip bikkies!) I only used half a cup of chocolate melts on top which was plenty for a thin layer

  3. I have made this countless times and it is really really delicious. My boys love it, as I do. I double the topping as I found the amounts in the recipe don’t make enough (we are caramel fiends!). The weetbix gives the base a wonderful chewy texture and you can kid yourself that it’s a bit healthy.

  4. I made this today and its so yummy my husband kept going back for more I had to put in a container before it all vanished lol a real treat on a wet day..

  5. Hi, this slice sounds delicious and very easy to make. I love how it uses weetbix becuase I have alot of that in my pantry and its also a healthy ingredient! Just wondering though if you can specify the size of the slice tin you used. Thanks

  6. I made this the other night and its YUM!! Really quick and easy, love the way the chocolate just melts on the hot caramel! But agree you definately have to double the caramel. I used a whole tin, minus a few spoonfuls for the chef! :o)

  7. On Good Morning you said you could swap the weetbix for rolled oats. How do you work out the weight/amount of rolled oats needed.
    Some years ago you talked about Omelete Herbs and I bought some and they were wonderful in quiches. Please can you suggest another Master Food that is as good. I have used Italian Herbs, but not as good.
    Thanks

  9. I made this a couple of nights ago. Was distracted by my youngest waking up and I forgot to add the 3/4 cup sugar to the base. I put the recipe amount of caramel onto the cooked base and sprinkled chopped dark choc over to smooth. The slice is delicious! It doesn’t suffer at all for the omission of sugar.

  10. I totally forgot about the sugar! but it worked totally fine and ended up just as delicious as it normally would! :)

  11. I was looking to use some excess sweetened condensed milk when I came across several recipes for various slices. I had no idea what a slice was, nor had I ever heard of weetbix. Then I saw these recipes are from New Zealand. That’s the internet for you. I live in the US. I take it the weetbix are a shortbread cookie? If so, I’m going to try this recipe. Wish me luck.

    • Hi Jen. Weetbix is a breakfast cereal that originated in the UK. It is unsweetened and they are bars of a compressed wheat mixture that you generally pour milk over. In NZ we also crumble them into a couple of seeet slice recipes. I don’t know what your US equivalent is.
