W is for Weetbix Slice

Weet Bix Slice
Oooo Yum!
Do you ever have those moments when something happens and you are reminded of something you loved from the past and you didn't even realise you had forgotten all about it?  And then your family was like, Woah how come you have been hiding this from us?  We love it!  Well for me it has been the humble Weet-Bix Slice.

I was reading the March issue of one of my two favourite food magazines Super Food Ideas (my other favourite is Donna Hay) when I spotted a recipe for Weet-Bix slice.  We made the slice following the recipe and it turned out really well.
