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.


| Serves: 16 squares | Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Cook Time: -  | Total Time: -  |


  • 100g Butter
  • 100g Milk Chocolate
  • 100g Dark Chocolate
  • 3 TBSP Golden Syrup
  • 225g Digestives, crushed
  • 120g Honeycomb (Maltesers)
  • 100g Glace Cherries, halved
  • 2 TBSP Mincemeat
  • Topping:
  • 75g Dark Chocolate
  • 100g Maltesers, halved


  • Step 1: Line a 20x20cm tin with greaseproof paper. Melt the butter, chocolate and syrup in a pan over a low heat.
  • Step 2: Mix in the cherries, digestives, maltesers and mincemeat into the melted chocolate and press into tin. Put into a fridge to chill for 30 minutes.
  • Step 3: Melt the topping chocolate in a pan then spread onto the set chocolate biscuit base and place the halved maltesers on top. Set, dust with icing sugar if you wish and cut into 16 squares.

  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!!!

  2. That looks and sounds utter,y delicious. An adult version sounds great for Christmas gifts!

  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!

  4. Oooh! I think I've just found my contribution to the cake stall for the school christmas fair - thank you!

  5. Fabulous! I am a mincemeat and Malteser fiend and this is my perfect recipe!

  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.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
