A Wagon Wheel slice that will take you back to your childhood

A tasty twist on a classic treat!

Remember how great Wagon Wheels used to be? While they can still be found in supermarkets, it almost feels like they don’t have the same taste as they used to.

If you’re looking for a modern twist on the classic flavour, why not try whipping up some a delicious Wagon Wheel slice? It’s a bit more special than a traditional chocolate slice and perfect for the upcoming Christmas season!
