This Marshmallow Weetbix Slice brings back so many memories of childhood. My friends mum used to make this all the time for parties and get togethers.  I lost count how many times I went to bed with a sore tummy from eating so much of it at sleepovers.

I have done some research on this slice to find the history of it without much luck but I have found that people have been making this slice for over 70 years. Wow. An oldie but a goodie.

For those that haven’t seen this before, this is a delicious slice made with a weetbix biscuit base topped with scrumptious marshmallow and some toasted coconut. Its crunchy and soft all in one.

Don’t let the marshmallow scare you off. It is so incredibly easy in a tmx or the traditional way. I do a no cook marshmallow. Why? So it is fool proof and so there is no risk of crystallisation.

Want to mix it up a little bit? Add 40g of cocoa to the base mixture for a yummy chocolatey version. Or spread a little raspberry jam on the base then top with the marshmallow mix.

    I have spent this week looking everywhere for a thermomix recipe for this ( but with the chocolate base) like my mother used to make! Thankyou, I will just add some cocoa to the base and it will be just like the one I remember!

      Hey Claire,

    Thanks so much for the recipe! I made it last night with my kids and as they don’t like shredded coconut we put chocolate on top instead and spread the base with thermomΓ­x made strawberry jam. It was soooo tasty!! πŸ™‚

    This slice is so yummy and super easy. I may or may not have stood there licking the marshmallow off my butterfly and bowl. Sorry, not sorry πŸ˜‰

    Made this today, so very excited to have made marshmallow. I put raspberry jam in between the base and the marshmallow so it didn’t ‘stick’ to the base but made it very very tasty. Next time I think I would use a bigger pan to thin out the base as it was a bit thick for me (and i overcooked it.. DOH) but will definitely make this again. Actually I already have plans to make it for the next playgroup I have to cater for πŸ˜€

    Oh this looks too pretty to eat. I am not much of a baker but every since joining the group on Facebook, all the delicious recipes are motivating me to try my hand at baking… πŸ˜‰

    My Mum used to make this and now I make it every year for my son’s birthday, but we use a packet of jelly mix. will have to give this recipe a go and see how it goes. Yum.

    I just made this in the TM5, Im trying to wait for it to set. A quick question. When adding the gelatine mix into the sugar mix do you leave the butterfly in or whisk in or take it out to blitz it?

      Leave it in πŸ™‚
      Enjoy!
