    I am signed up to a online digression called the cheapskates club. That's where I first heard of it. They have lots of helpful ideas to achieve this. I shop around and go to a fruit and veggie shop, butcher, aldi, Coles, and woolworths and get the cheapest from each shop. I bake all my kids lunch box and snacks as I have a asd child so I have completely gotten rid of processed food out of his diet. We have oats for breakfast everyday except on day on the weekend where we have homemade pancakes and lunch are sandwiches where we get the bread for free as my mum works at a bakery so brings me the leftovers. I do a basic fruit and veggie shop when I need it and use long life milk when the fresh milk is all used.

    @DesperatelySeekingSleep and anyone else who wants it...

    MARS BAR SLICE
    3x Mars Bars
    90g butter
    3 cups rice bubbles
    1x block top deck chocolate

    1. Grease and line slice tin with baking paper.
    2. Chop up mars bars and melt in a saucepan with butter.
    3. Pour melted butter and mars bar mixture over rice bubbles and stir well to evenly combine.
    4. Pour mixture into tin and spread evenly in tray. Make sure to get into all the corners.
    5. Break up the top deck chocolate and melt in a bowl over boiling water (ensuring not to let the water touch the underside of the chocolate bowl or the chocolate).
    6. Pour melted chocolate over slice, ensuring to get even coverage. A spatula helps
    7. Place slice in fridge and allow time for it to cool and chocolate to set.
    8. Take out of tin and cut into pieces.


    I tend to use a shallower tray as it gives me more pieces, and they're not quite as big. It can be too sweet for some people which is why the smaller pieces are better. Doesn't stop me from eating most of it though haha.

    I find it hard to cut, so I use patty cases and make them like chocolate crackles. Just a variation.

    I love this thread!
    If it's thinner it's a lot easier to cut. I use the biggest/longest knife in the block and it cuts it pretty easily!

    Friends of mine used to use the coles brand plain/vanilla ones as pancake/waffle mix. Maybe that would work??
