We’re loving this sweet treat, complete with the easiest crust you’ll ever make – with Weetbix!

There aren’t a lot of ingredients in this beautiful slice, but it’s so full of flavour and crunch that it’ll become a fast favourite.



  • 180g butter, chopped
  • 1.5 cup plain flour
  • 3 Weet-Bix biscuits
  • 3 tbsp cold water


  • 1 cup roasted macadamias/walnuts
  • 395g tin sweetened condensed milk
  • 100g butter, chopped
  • 1 tbsp  golden syrup


  1. For the crust, process the butter, flour and Weet-Bix in a food processor until mixture is like fine breadcrumbs. Add water in 1 tbsp at a time until a soft dough forms. Wrap dough in glad wrap and refrigerate for half an hour.
  2. In the meantime, preheat your oven to 200 degrees. Lightly butter a 22cm round loose-bottom tart dish (approximately 4cm high).
  3. Take the dough out of the fridge and place onto a lightly-floured surface. Roll out to 3mm thin, then lay into the prepared pie tin and push into the edges.
  4. Place a sheet of baking paper on top and fill with pie weights. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove the paper and weights then bake for a further 10 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 180C.
  5. While this is baking, combine butter, condensed milk and syrup in a medium saucepan. Stir over low heat until well combined.
  6. Spread your macadamias over the base of the pie crust, then evenly pour over caramel filling. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow to cool then cut into triangles to serve.

    • The way to get around this is to hold your left mouse down and drag down the left hand side of the recipe. The area should be highlighted blue. Then right click mouse on the blue area. A small menu should appear and print should be one of them. Left click on print and follow the prompts. This is how I print these recipes. Good luck.

    • One of the excellent uses of an iPad, I just photograph the recipe, I can then e mail it for printing if needed…
