What do you use your Weet-Bix for? {No Bake Weet-Bix Slice Recipe}

January 16, 2013 · 32 comments

 

Weet-Bix are the wonder child of the cereal department.    It’s the first cereal  most kids eat and  undoubtedly one of the more healthy options available to us all.    I was asked recently if I wanted to contribute to a list of 100 things you can do with Weet-Bix and as they’re a staple in our pantry I thought hey why not!    The first thing that popped into my mind was Weet-Bix slice (see recipe below).  It’s something I make every now and then and  it rarely fails to please.   But, just for fun  I thought I’d share a few other crazy ideas I’ve either tried or had inflicted upon me  ….. wonder if any of them will make it into the top 100?

1) Weet-Bix makes an awesome backup for when you run out of both dog and chook food.  Seriously – the animal kingdom  love Weet-Bix too!
2) Weet-Bix, when smeared through curly toddler hair, makes a fabulous curl booster.  Sets like cement – far better than hairspray!
3) Weet-Bix, when mixed with milk, can be used as a substitute for glue if you run out during a crafting session. Seriously!
4) Weet-Bix dropped on the floor directly from the bowl and left to dry can be used to hasten the process of driving the household mummy mad – have you ever tried to get that stuff off!

 

NO Bake Weet-Bix Slice

DSC_0697

INGREDIENTS:

10 Weet-bix
200g Condensed Milk
125g melted butter
1/2 cup of coconut
1 tbs cocoa
dried fruit and or nuts (dates, walnuts, cranberries …)

Icing
1 tbs butter
1tbs cocoa
1 1/2 cups of icing sugar
1 teaspoon of boiling water

Step One
Crush 10 Weet-bix into a mixing bowl.

 Step Two

Melt the butter and condensed milk  in a saucepan over heat stirring well.

Step Three
Add Coconut, Cocoa and dried fruit or nut to the Weet-Bix and mix well. (You can play around a lot with what type of fruit or nuts you add – or leave the out altogether.)

Step Four:
Pour the butter and condensed milk mixture into the Weet-Bix and stir to combine fully.

Step Five
Press the mixture into a plastic slice container lined with baking paper (Cut out a square of baking paper the same size as the base of the  tray.)

Step Six
Make the icing  by combining all ingredients and mixing well.  Pour icing onto the slice and spread over the entire top.

Step seven
Allow to cool and then put the lids on the slice containers and refrigerate until well chilled.

Step Eight
Cut into squares to serve.  I find it best to leave the slice in these containers and leave it in the fridge when not in use.

Do you have any other Weet-Bix uses that should be added to the top 100?

Yes. Glue. If MacGyver came over to my house in an emergency I’d hand him some balsa wood and milky weetbix. he could make airplane and the joints would air dry in no time.

Hey Caz,
I also give our chooks the bits of leftover Weetbix in the bottom of the cereal packet and they LOVE it!
Never knew about the glue or hairspray though – LOL!

The weetbix slice looks so yummy. Our boys cant tolerate Weet Bix, wondering if the recipe can be used with crushed up corn flakes? Not that it would be the same.
Cant image it lasting long 🙂

Ooo yummy Caz! This one appeals to me as it’s no bake and is kind of a little bit healthy having the weetbix in it. We actually don’t eat weetbix around here, but now I’m keen to give your recipe a try. Thanks for sharing xo

Shame about the condensed milk – but yes still a little more healthy than the biscuit bases. Hope you love it.

I bought a packet of Weet-Bix but then realised the neither the boys nor I like it as a cereal, so have bookmarked this for when we’re ‘gettin’ bake-y with it’. Thanks Caz!

Can definitely relate to the getting the dried weetbix off the floor- that will be several minutes of my life I will never get back :). My kids have been told all the Weetbix must be eaten before we get another packet of cereal. They’ve been crumbling it up and mixing it with Sultana Bran or cornflakes to speed up the eating. This yummy recipe looks like something the kids could make too 🙂

I’m sure they’ve love it. It sweet – but not as much as a regular biscuit based slice. It’s also good knowing there is some fibre and good stuff in there 🙂

When i bvught 2 boxes on sale years ago i was frustrated when 2 days later my daughter decided she no longer liked weetbix – finally searched the internet for recipes that use weetbix and found a great weetbix and banana muffin that is nutritious

Hey hon – sorry for the delay – could not find it – here it is enjoy! http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/3330/banana+weet+bix+muffins

i usually double the recipe and usually sub milk + lemon juice for buttermilk which i rarely have on hand (1 cup milk + 1 TBS lemon = sit for 5 minutes)
also i have found 1 weet-bix = about 1/3c crumbs in case you want to use the bottom of the box ; )
