Made these yesterday as xmas presents (made one batch with turkish delight, the other with crunchie bars). They have turned out perfectly and look great :) very easy to make too.

Obviously missed this in my 2008 copy. It is a brilliant recipe - very quick to make. Delicious and fun to experiment with. I made it for a
Charity Coffee Morning and it was very successful. Besides being scrumptious, I was really impressed with how it sliced up perfectly. I cut it up the day after I made it.

so easy and yummy!!! You can put what ever you like in the middle too! Also a great recipe to do with kids who are learning as no actual 'baking' is required.

First time I made this I added malteser's and crunchie's instead because I don't like turkish delight, I also added M&M on the top to decorate it, it was delicious, I have a very sweet tooth and found the sweetness just fine but I could imagine it being too sweet for quite a few people.
I can't believe how easy it is too make, next time I make it I'm going to try Snickers and rich tea biscuits - Rather excited about that as I love Snickers !! :)

I have make these many times now. I’ve used shortbread, digestives, bounty, fudge, Turkish delight, mini marsh mellows & loads of different combinations to get affect, so much so now I make them and never get to taste them as my wife takes them to work through popular demand!!

The better quality chocolate the less likely it is to curdle I find. I also dust with icing sugar.

Ive made this twice now - it always goes down well in our house and my son loves to help me make it - I add maltesers and milkyways along with the biscuits and the last time I made it I added milky buttons which were a lovely extra. I agree though that bars would be too much - I cut them into bite size pieces.
