Yummy! I chucked in some dried cranberries too. Less sugar as someone else suggested and it was still sweet enough. Everyone enjoyed it, will have to make this a regular recipe.

Really yummy and a winner with the kids. Added my own twist to it and added strawberry chocolate instead of white chocolate and sprinkled flaked Almonds on top.

So easy and so delicious! My boyfriend is not a sweet tooth like me, but his little face lit up every time he was offered a slice...! :0) Will be making again.

This was so quick and easy, and will also do for our two friends who are wheat and dairy intolerant. I didn't have quite enough coconut and made it up with ground almonds, which seemed to be O.K. as it turned out to be delicious. My husband is a bit fussy about what sweet things he eats, but loves this one. I've been running off copies to give to friends, as we always share our best recipes.
