This is a brilliant recipe to use up unwanted Weetabix. It's now become one of my son's favourite cakes, he loves it. I did however jazz it up a bit with some chopped up Snickers bars mixed in before baking along with some blobs of peanut butter. No need for the icing if you do this.
Definitely more like a brownie but with crunchy weetabix flakes. Yummy and different. i didn't frost/ice it because it was plenty sweet as written. i did sub in soy milk. It doesn't stick together very well, but we didn't mind it falling apart enough to stop eating it. :-) Thanks for posting this!
My family loves it! Reminds me of a slice I used to make back in the 90s :) I think I got the recipe - or one very similar - from my intermediate school cooking teacher :) - oh yeah, this was more slice-y then fudge-y for me. Could be why some people are confused and describe it kind of like a brownie?? I imagined it would be a bit sweeter, but that was not a problem, I wouldn't change a thing. I used a quick basic icing of icing sugar, cocoa, butter and water. And fyi, I used a 24x18cm pan and it was fine, but due to personal preferance, I'll use a 24x24cm tin next time - there will certainly be a next time!
One person who tasted it said it tastes "like matzah" (which basically means it's a tasteless cracker)... but nobody else complained much, they just didn't RAVE. I used Splenda and maragarine, and soy milk to keep it non-dairy. I used half a cup of liquid and it wasn't very moist. The recipe doesn't state what size pan to use, so I used a 9" x 13" baking pan and put it in the oven at 350 F. I've never made fudge before, but this seems to be awfully brownie-like! Maybe I left it in the oven too long, because it cracked when I tried to cut it into squares. I didn't ice it, either, just left it as is. It's a different way to use up the Weetabix, at least. Thanks.
Well from just the raw mix it tasted nice lol - Just struggling to know if its cooked or not!
Just like mother used to make. It freezes well too. Yum
We love this choc weetbix fudge. We are aussies and all in our household love weetbix for breakfast but had no idea it could be used to make a fudge. Absolutely beautiful and so easy to make. Gr8 1.
This was a huge hit with my 5 year old. She ate 2 pieces as soon as she got home from school today. This is really easy to make and will be a great lunch box item. You know I'm a kiwi and I've never eaten weetbix slice! Adele, thanks for a keeper :)
Awesome! my son was sick of weetbix and we had half a box left. now he wants to make this dish all the time. thank you for a great recipe that my kids could make during the school holidays.
