These are amazingly yummy. I added dried cranberries to the mix. I also spread chocolate over the top of the entire chilled mix, in the tin, before cutting into bite size pieces to chill. They don’t last long at our house.
Made these today, & OMG , they are indeed delicious. I added in some coconut flakes, & omitted the melted chocolate, as I thought they were sweet enough!!
