    This is a delightful change from the usual condensed milk balls. The mixture was really dry though, so I added in a bit of melted butter to hold it all together. I also put in a third cup of sultanas, dried apricots and crystallized ginger instead of the whole cup of sultanas. They are really delicious and tangy.  -  15 Dec 2014  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
