Chocolate Honeycomb Mincemeat Squares

Chocolate Honeycomb Mincemeat Squares


Is it acceptable to be posting festive recipe ideas yet? I hope so as these chocolate squares were pretty amazing.

Baking Mad contacted me recently to see if I would like to recreate, in my own style a recipe from their extensive website. Having had a browse through the hundreds of lovely bakes and cakes, I stumbled across one for Chocolate Honeycomb Squares. I wanted to give the recipe my own festive twist so added some halved glace cherries, mincemeat and a dusting of snowy icing sugar on top. I also used half dark chocolate and half milk chocolate to cut through the sweetness of the cherries and mincemeat.

The bars keep really well in the fridge (up to 2 weeks) so are an ideal make ahead treat or gift. If you wanted to make them more 'adult', you could try using Amaretti biscuits instead of the honeycomb and brandy soaked raisins instead of the glace cherries. Enjoy, these are too good.

  1. Amaretti - are you kidding! Maltesers every time, that looks just fantastic just the way it is. Seriously, I'm sure that the 'adult' version would be great too I just can't see past those maltesers!!!

  3. Ooh it ticks all my boxes! I have about a 1/4 of a jar of mincemeat so would be put to good use! The squares look delicious, doubt they would last two weeks!

    And no not to early, I've been baking some Christmassy bits but not blogged yet due to a backlog!

  6. Love this idea! I always end up with far too much mincemeat, what a great way to use it up in something other than (yet more) mince pies.

  7. These sound (and look) amazing! I'm not normally a big mincemeat fan, but when it's surrounded by all that chocolate and maltesers?! Yum.
