Hi T, we recommend to mix the bicarb with the water prior to adding it to the mixture to make sure it is all dissolved first. Hope that helps!
Why does the recipe want to activate the bi-carb soda before we start baking the slice?
The slices are so delicious and a big hit in our house! I also mixed up the recipe and added chopped mixed nuts - pistachios, cashews, macadamias and almonds. I took out half the flour and oats to do this. I often include rice bubbles too. Yummo!!!
Mmmmmmmmm so good, I was thinking about Anzac cookies dipped in chocolate when I remembered these bad bois. I have to make these again!
I make this but with half a cup of each the ingredients mentioned and add - Half cup each of sunflower kernels, sesame seeds, crushed nuts, rice bubbles. It’s called muesli slice and it’s yum. All my friends love it.
Great slice. Very quick and easy. Kids enjoy it as much as i do.
So good! A huge hit with each of my four kids and also satisfies my chocolate cravings!
So delicious!! Everyone raves about it

Hi Shashini, the recipe calls for unsalted butter but you can swap with salted if you prefer. We have not tested the recipe with milk chocolate melts but if they are your preferred choice feel free to swap them with dark chocolate. The DH team
Can I substitute Salted butter to unsalted? and can I use the milk chocolate melts? Thanks!
