I made these today using dark brown, unrefined Muscovado cane sugar as it was all I had in the cupboard. They are delicious! Chewy and crunchy at the same time. Almost a toffee taste.
Next time I make them I'm going to try with a light soft sugar and cherries instead of nuts. Lovely warm, I couldn't wait to let them cool. - 27 Jun 2015
