These are delicious to make as gifts for people, which I did at chrsitmas, and everybody loved them. They look great in jars with a ribbon round. I have had requests for them since, and they are so easy to make.

Delicious! I have made them for Christmas gifts, but eaten quite a lot already!

These are great, very easy to make and taste fantastic. I used half the quantity of nuts, just because that's all I bought and half the quantity of the ingredients. For us just the right amount of Christmas taste!

Tastes great even without the spicy bit, which I forgot! Only thing is, I found it a bit too sticky when I cooked them for the time and at the temperature specified. I've found if you spread them over two baking trays and cook them for 10 minutes at 140 degrees, then ten minutes at 150 and ten minutes at 160, stirring in between each temperature increase, they wind up gloriously sticky. The tin does tend to get a bit messy but soaks off OK so this time I've decanted them onto a piece of baking parchment to cool while they are still hot. I've made them for Christmas parcels for our family.
