This is the BEST!!! Definitely recommend making this

It’s a great recipe, never had any trouble with crumbling. I do crush the weetbix up quite finely though and have always made sure was fully cooked before slicing like with any other slice or cake.
I never go to any other recipe for weetbix slice but this Chelsea one.

This is so good I’m still making it but it looks good

This is the best weetbix slice recipe I've come across. I added raisins too. Was delicious!

Does the coconut go into the icing or on top?
Chelsea Sugar:
You can chose to add the coconut into the icing or sprinkle it on top.

Beautiful taste. Using weatbix as an ingredient for a loaf or a slice never occurred to me the taste of beautiful moist absolutely yummy. I will be making this more often in future. Thank you Chelsea.

All I can say is "wow!". Super quick, very easy, all the ingredients I had in my pantry and turned out perfectly! I haven't baked in a while as I'd lost my passion for it but this has bought it back so thanks Chelsea!!


Fantastic, easy recipe.

Favourite !!

It is delicious. The recipe reads very weirdly, and calls for a lot of butter! But the end result is amazing. Make sure you refrigerate to harden (otherwise will crumble) and use baking paper.

Trip down memory lane, this is a classic. I made it with my mum and now I have just made it with my kids. So simple and tasty. Thanks Chelsea!

Made it with GF Weetbix and flour. Went 50/50 butter and coconut oil. Should have used less sugar in the base. And just left it. But put melted choc on the top - very rich - only a small piece is needed but it is lovely!!!!

So tasty

It was very sweet but very nice.

I make this every weekend and send to my granddaughter for her school lunch treat! Always works well, I leave it in the fridge so no problem with cutting or crumbling and no taste compromise. Easy and delicious ❤️

Was very crunchy and tough. What size slice tin is recommended for this recipe?
Chelsea Sugar:
Use a standard size slice time, approximately 32cm x 24cm x 5cm.

It was good but I think there needs to be less butter because they are really buttery and I think less sugar because weetbix slice is meant to be healthy.

Impossible to cut and just crumbles! Tastes nice but a bit too sweet for my liking with the icing sugar.

Amazing and so good.

Yum! I lined my baking tin with baking paper so it was easy to pull out slice from tin once cool and easier to cut into squares, without crumbling too much.
I forgot to add the coconut to icing, but sprinkled on top, definitely a better method.
This made my icing thick but runny and poured on slice while hot, nicely.
Sweet, so may try alternative or use less sugar next time. But very good recipe!

Delicious! Had to make a second batch as my family ate the first one in one day! Brings back childhood memories.

For the person looking through the comments before you put the slice in make sure you put it on fan bake.

Great recipe. I doubled the mixture as it is quite small.

Horrible. I kept checking to make sure I hadn't got anything wrong, but it hardly filled the small slice tray and just crumbled.

Alright flavour.



From past recipes I added a few extra tablespoons of butter (less crumbly) and 1/4 coco for a richer flavour. I would recommend cooling the slice before icing because it was a lot of work for the thing not to crumble to pieces while being hot and super soft/crumbly. Yummy recipe.




it is great I made it for my family and they loved it!

its yummy and full of chocolate goodness. It is awesome

Great nice and easy kids could make on their own, and very yummy

This slice turned out great. EVery time I make it it just goes quick and every one remarks on this slice. Yummy very addictive weetbix slice.

It does not tell me what to bake it at.
CHELSEA SUGAR: For this recipe bake at 180 degrees celsius for 10 minutes using a slice tin.

It's very easy to make with children helping.

Made this recipe twice now. So good!!

Awsome easy receipe. I can't make slices but this made my day.

I substituted half the sugar with golden syrup and added a cup of shredded coconut to the base. Either way the recipe is great!

What did I do wrong ? The whole thing crumbled into pieces!

My kids love it make it all the time. It's good for school lunch and parties.

My childhood favourite, my mum used to make this every week for us when we were kids. When I haven't been home in a while she always makes it for me.

Mine is verrrrry flat not like the picture... tastes nice though

I used apple instead of butter which made it not crumbly and not so rich. Very delicious! I froze some as otherwise I would have kept scoffing them!

Super yummy. I decided to 'tweak' the recipe and used a peanut butter fudge type icing which was a great pairing in our 'peanut butter loving' family. Very moreish.

This recipe was very tasty and was just how I like it xxx

Love this recipe one of my favourites

Second time making it and my family loves it. I leave the slice in for about 15 minutes. Only because my oven isn't the greatest.

I loved this. Made it in no time at all and it Tastes great.

Yummy, delicious

Really easy recipe to follow and tastes great every time

Should this come out crunchy or soft and gooey?
Chelsea Sugar:
The top will be gooey and the base should have a bit of crunch.

I'm addicted to this slice. Devine. I have to double the recipe else it's gone too fast in our household. Delicious and super easy!!!!

Very nice, family love it

This has been a favourite recipe for many of my family for years.
I put coconut in the mixture , on top of the icing
Now my great grandchildren enjoy it. How this brings back
Sweet memories.

Mmmm! so good but why does only show good results

Easy and great, but my icing turned out very runny because I added too much hot water, it worked fine though and tasted fantastic!


It worked out great but was a bit sloppy

Yummy and So Easy to make.

I made this substituting gluten free weetbix and gluten free flour turned out gr8 happy kids

Yummy and very easy. Almost too easy ;)

It's amazing! The coconut in the icing makes it so so good!

Excellent biscuit crunch

Looks great. I can't wait to try it. Thanks for the recipe!!

I changed the 1/2 cup of white sugar to a 1/4 cup of dark cane sugar and it was very nice.
I would definitely recommend this 10 out of 10 for sure!!

Delicious an easy treat to make thanks!

Great my family loves it

My Family Loves this slice, I always make a double batch because it goes so fast in our house.

The family love it

We are going to make this slice for Tech tomorrow, just wondering if it is ok to put in the freezer so we can take away to camp next week?
CHELSEA: We will not recommend freezing it as it will change the texture and mouth feel.

This is an amazing slice!
Loved the taste!

Quick and easy recipe that always turns out tasty!

Excellent recipe - my boys love it

Good but waaay too much sugar!

Can anyone tell me if this recipe works out ok with melted margarine instead of butter? Butter has got too expensive! Such a great slice though, I sent a quadruple batch along to daughter's school camp and it was a huge hit. Nostalgic treat for the teachers too who would have loved it as a kid, as I did.
CHELSEA: Yes, we think margarine should be fine in this recipe :-)

Love this recipe- used to make it as a kid and now my kids love it too!

I don t know, but it's look like that coconut should go in to the base not icing. Looks pretty weird.

Love this recipe, my boy is fussy when it comes to certain foods (re-training the brain now that his allergies are gone) I'm so thankful I came across this.

Oh NO! Please tell me what I did wrong? I put the icing on while the slice was hot (as instructed) and as the icing was spread around, so was the top of the slice!? Chunky chocolate mess. Very sad.
CHELSEA: Hi there, it's best if you let the slice sit for a couple of minutes after it comes out of the oven before icing. The time it takes you to prepare the icing should be long enough, then gently spread the icing over the top. If that doesn't work, then it's possible the slice needed to be cooked for a couple more minutes - 10 minutes is a good guide but there can be a lot of variation between ovens. Hope it still tasted good!

Amazing for kids lunches. 10 out of 10 recommend.

This weetbix slice is so easy to make, cheaper to make than to buy

So easy to make and extra tasty. Cut so nicely too!

Not overly sweet. Good compromise for chocolate lovers and people who don't have much of a sweet tooth alike

It's good and it tastes delicious.
