Super quick and easy to make and tasted delicious. The only problem I had was cutting it into neat squares as it crumbled a bit...although I was maybe a bit hasty in not letting it cool completely from the oven first.

This could not have been any easier and looked great when taken out of the oven. Smelled delicious, too!

Yummy! I chucked in some dried cranberries too. Less sugar as someone else suggested and it was still sweet enough. Everyone enjoyed it, will have to make this a regular recipe.

Really yummy and a winner with the kids. Added my own twist to it and added strawberry chocolate instead of white chocolate and sprinkled flaked Almonds on top.

So easy and so delicious! My boyfriend is not a sweet tooth like me, but his little face lit up every time he was offered a slice...! :0) Will be making again.

This was so quick and easy, and will also do for our two friends who are wheat and dairy intolerant. I didn't have quite enough coconut and made it up with ground almonds, which seemed to be O.K. as it turned out to be delicious. My husband is a bit fussy about what sweet things he eats, but loves this one. I've been running off copies to give to friends, as we always share our best recipes.

The handiest traybake recipe I have to date! So simple to make, and absolutely delicious to eat! Have made them on a number of occasions now and they have gone down a storm every time!

Will definitely try Sue's raspberries and dark chocolate suggestion next time!

Have just whipped up a batch of this and it reminds me of my childhood! I think my tin was a tad large, so was rather flat, but would do again to be deeper.

So simple to make, made my first batch this morning. Reduced the sugar a little following some of the others advice. Have gone down a treat with my husband and kids.

Quick and easy bake. Had to use a mixture of different chocolate as that was all that was left in cupboard, but turned out really well!

really tasty and very easy.. but just use chocolate chips, so much easier than chopping up chocolate!

i liked this recipe however it is too sweet for my taste. next time i'll leave out the chocolate.
it was strange as i have a huge sweet tooth.

Changed this a bit as don't like glace cherries. I used frozen raspberries and dark chocolate. Used a bit less sugar and also less chocolate. Absolutely delicious, like a really luxuriant Bounty bar!!!
