After having a really busy weekend, I suddenly remembered I had promised to bake something for a charity cake sale at work tomorrow, and these have totally saved the day!!! I have just made two trays of these lovelies - one using white chocolate, and one with dark. I also ran out of coconut, so ground up some walnuts to make up the measurements. They are delicious and I will certainly recommend them and make them again in the future. Such very simple, but lovely ingredients, and really took next to no time to make. I am sure they will sell well tomorrow!

Made this again as so yummy. Did not have the full amount of glace cherries in the cupboard, so topped up with mixed peel left over from Christmas cake. A lovely addition to an easy recipe.

Tried this for the first time today as had visitors and wanted something quick and easy. Used white and milk chocolate and it is delicious. Will definitely be a favourite from now on. Highly recommended.

turned out grand first time, second time we scooped it out the tray hot and served with a creamy vanilla ice cream and a dash of rum for adults and it was sublime truly gorgeous

On the recommendation of others I replaced the white chocolate for dark and they have gone down a storm. Really easy, delicious bake.

Very easy to make, and despite me not double checking, and cooking them at GM 5 instead of 4 (derp!), still tasty! More "brown" than "golden" though! Will try with dark chocolate next time, as other commenters have suggested. I cut them, in the tin, whilst still hot, then simply broke them apart once cool. Worked well: neat edges and minimal crumbling.

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.
