Have just whipped up a batch of this and it reminds me of my childhood! I think my tin was a tad large, so was rather flat, but would do again to be deeper.

So simple to make, made my first batch this morning. Reduced the sugar a little following some of the others advice. Have gone down a treat with my husband and kids.

Quick and easy bake. Had to use a mixture of different chocolate as that was all that was left in cupboard, but turned out really well!

really tasty and very easy.. but just use chocolate chips, so much easier than chopping up chocolate!

i liked this recipe however it is too sweet for my taste. next time i'll leave out the chocolate. it was strange as i have a huge sweet tooth.

Changed this a bit as don't like glace cherries. I used frozen raspberries and dark chocolate. Used a bit less sugar and also less chocolate. Absolutely delicious, like a really luxuriant Bounty bar!!!

Made this yesterday. Really nice although a little too sweet for my taste, will reduce sugar to 2oz next time and not chop the chocolate quite so small. All in all a really good quick bake.

This was so easy to make and went down a storm with my work colleagues. Will definately make again!
