  3. Pour milo into the icing sugar and mix well.  You may need to add an extra couple of tablespoons of boiling water.  Add one tablespoon at a time and mix well between each addition until you get a thick but spreadable icing consistency.

Recipe Notes

What are Weet-Bix?

Weet-Bix are made in Australia by the company Sanitarium and are a popular breakfast cereal, or you could say cereal brick.

The UK equivalent is Weetabix.  There is no real equivalent in the USA, shredded wheat breakfast "bricks" are the closest I have found.

What is Milo?

As far as I am aware Milo isn't available in the USA.  You can substitute Ovaltine, it is a similar product.  Not as good of course ;)
