Made two batches of these fruit blocks. One as the recipe says and one using dates since not everyone in my family enjoys the fruit cake mix. Either way it was absolutely delicious.
- 500 g butter
- 300 g sugar
- 500 g fruit cake mix or dates
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 10 ml vanilla essence
- 2½ packets Marie biscuits, crumbled
- 100 g desiccated coconut
Add the eggs to the fruit mixture and return the saucepan to the heat. Bring to boil, then remove from the heat again. Stir in the vanilla essence and the crumbled biscuits. Add the coconut and mix well to combine.
Cut onto blocks and roll in some more coconut.
