60 Weeks Until ..... Number 10

This week we have a cake   No Bake Weetbix slice.

10 Weetbix
200g condensed milk
125g melted butter
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1 tablespoon cocoa
1/2 cup dried fruit ( your choice -  I used currants)
1.   Crush the Weetbix finely into a bowl.  Add coconut, cocoa and fruit and mix.
2.   Melt the butter and condensed milk
Add 2 to 1
Press the mixture into a well greased  slice tray and chill well in the refrigerator
Mix up the icing
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon cocoa
1 and a 1/2 cups icing sugar
1 teaspoon of boiling water
Mix all together until well combined and spread on top of the chilled cake.
Cut into slices.   Best stored in the refrigerator
And for my overseas friends who may not be familiar with the iconic New Zealand Weetbix.   It is a breakfast cereal of crushed wheat compressed into rectangular cakes and eaten with enjoyment by most NZ children and affectionate nostalgia by many New Zealand adults ;-)
