Used different ingredients. Honey instead of syrup. Dried cherries and mixed fruit. Added chopped mini marshmallows (by order of my daughter!) - 22 Jul 2009


!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They were delicious and barely took any time! I put 2tsp of cocoa powder in and put in 50g/2oz of choc chips instead of the raisins and cherries.I kept in the dried apricots though. Thanks! - 15 Feb 2012
