Chocolate Weetbix Squares

These chocolatey, healthy, crunchie-type biscuits are made in the microwave – so it’s an economical and quick recipe! 

  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of crushed weetbix – crumble finely
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 heaped Tbsp cocoa
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut 

How to:
  1. Melt the butter, stir in the other ingredients, mixing very well 
  2. Press into a greased square microwave-proof dish, and cook on medium-high (70% power) for 6 or 7 minutes 
  3. Be careful not to over-cook, the biscuits should be slightly chewy, and if over-cooked they will break your teeth! 
  4. Cover the biscuits with chocolate glace icing (stir together some icing sugar and cocoa, add enough boiling water to mix to a thick paste), and cut into squares before they have completely cooled.
