Easy Chocolate Weetbix Slice

This Easy Chocolate Weetbix Slice recipe is a Kiwi Classic. It’s so easy that my daughter (10) made it independently. It’s a perfect treat for those lovely kids who worked so hard on their home learning, and for the awesome parents out there who keep sane during the lockdown. You’re not alone!

Weetbix is a Kiwi choice for a breakfast cereal as a part of a healthy balanced diet. It’s a great source of healthy wholegrains and is low in sugar. It provides vitamins and minerals for a great start of your busy day! And this slice recipe incorporates the healthy wholegrain cereal, Weetbix.

Klarion joined the Weetbix Baking Photo Contest on Facebook and posted a grid of photos of her baking this yummy goodies. We were so surprised that she won the contest. She was given $100 prezzy card that can be used in 1M stores online. This was an incredible news for us! She was over the moon to have won the contest. Congratulations Klarion! More power to Weetbix!
