Quick cheap and addictive, converted from a New Zealand recipe, Great traybake or cheap biscuit tin hit. Only slightly more sophisticated than rice crispie cakes but a whole lot nicer. And this version is Vegan!
3 x Weetabix - crushed up
130g Self Raising Flour
80g Desiccated Coconut
1 tsp Vanilla Essence
200g Granulated or Caster Sugar
1 tbsp Cocoa Powder
150g Vegan margarine
For the icing
100g Dark Chocolate
1 tbsp margarine
3 tbsp icing sugar
Pop the oven on; 180 c or Gas 4. Then mix all the dry ingredients together; crumbled Weetabix, Flour, Sugar, cocoa powder, coconut in a bowl.
Melt the margarine and add the vanilla essence over a low heat
While the margarine is melting line a tray with baking parchment. The dimensions don't really matter but i use a square 9 inch or 22 cm tray which works well
Once the margarine mix has melted stir it into the dry ingredients and combine until completely mixed.
Place the mixture into the baking tray , pressing down into corners and ensuring the mix is flat. Place in oven for 20 minutes.
Allow to cool for an hour then melt the icing ingredients. Spread evenly across the surface. When it is set cut it into 24 squares. Try one, and then have another as they are so nice and you have 23 left so another won't be missed
