I made these to take for a camping holiday, they were superb for breakfast!
I doubled quantities to suit the silicone mould I had.
I used a mixture of dried cranberries and home dried raspberries, whitecurrants & blackcurrants.
LUSH will make again!

I made these today for my Bridge group and they were very popular. I doubled the quantity as I was using a bigger tin but I kept to the original amount of sugar and syrup ie I halved the amount of sugar. I also did not have quite enough cranberries so I added some chopped apricots.

I have just made these for a marathon I am running tomorrow. They are so nice I am not sure there will be any left for tomorrow. I did reduce the sugar I put in by 25% as I do not like things overly sweet and they turned out perfectly.
