Easy and Tasty! Instead of 200g of white chocolate, I used 180g of dark chocolate and slightly more sugar and it turned out great.

Very easy - essentially just mix in a bowl and off you go! Very delicious; however (and this was probably just me) but mine came out very crumbly, and not like the photo implies. I would suggest another egg.

Where have I gone wrong? I followed the recipe carefully and weighed the ingredients. However, the mix looked very dry, and after baking it remained dry and had not come together. Really only 2 eggs ?

The amount of chocolate is waayy waay too high. I have used 200 g dark chocolate (85% cocoa mass) and even so they turned out far too sweert, overpowering the coconut & cherry (fresh ones) aroma. Next time I will use maximum 100g, perhaps even less chocolate.

For a clueless baker as myself, I used the exact ingredients and mine turned out fine. All together and not crumbly, unless you didn't mix them well enough? Plus the two eggs I used weren't massive, just medium and was fine. Yes, it's a sweet Snack :)

Made this for a treat for work colleagues as I'm tired of making flapjacks, brownies and rocky road. Went down very well! Will be making it again. Very easy recipe.

This is lovely and so easy. I was a bit worried with the mixing as it didn't look promising but it held together really well. Also made it using dried pineapple and white chocolate which was very good too.

Super-easy and delicious. Gluten-free, too!
