Traditional Weetbix Slice is a staple I enjoyed growing up.

This one contains peanut butter, for a non-peanut butter version – check out Chocolate Nut Free Weetbix Slice.  It is best kept in the fridge or it gets very brittle.

This is the perfect dessert for times when your budget is stretched tight, with the entire thing coming together for less than $4! Consider it a sweet treat for the hard weeks.

For the price estimates here we’ve used a large national supermarket, but it’s possible (and highly encouraged) for you to look around at your local farmers market, local butcher or at discount grocers. You’re likely to find many of these ingredients even cheaper there!
