Chocolate Wheaties

1 cup self raising Flour

4 weetbix - finely crushed

One third cup desicated coconut

One third cup firmly packed brown sugar

125gm butter - melted

1 Tablespoon milk (approx)

Combine flour, weetbix, coconut, sugar and butter. Mix well and then add enough milk to bind ingredients together. Press a heaped teaspoon of mixtuer into a ball then flatten slightly between your palms and then place an a greased oven tray.

Bake biscuits at 200 degrees for 10 minutes, until they are a light brown.

Allow biscuits to stand on trays for a minute or two then transfer to a wire rack. Spread biscuits with warm chocolate icing and sprinkle with extra coconut.

To make icing

Sift three quarters of a cup of icing suger and 2 tablespoons of cocoa into a bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of soft butter and 1 tablespoon of milk (approx) to make a stiff paste. Heat in microwave for 20-30 seconds till icing is smooth and spreadable. Use icing while it is warm as it will set when cool.

My mixture made 20.

Georgia says these are "scrummy"! I will also have to give them a go. Looks very similar to my Chocolate Slice recipe... thanks for sharing!
