      Went on a chocolate overload with these! Delicious..... The size for the baking pan was not given, so I used a 9x13. Never having made hedgehog before, wasn't sure how they should look! As you can see, mine came out very thin (I may have chopped the nuts a little too finely!) I used crushed graham crackers instead of the sweet biscuits. For the icing, instead of water, I used a little of Cherry Cordial Hot Chocolate. Will definitely have these again! Thnx for sharing your recipe, JNS. Made for Comfort Cafe Snow Queen Chalet Jan 2010.

      I've never made hedgehog before, so this was an interesting recipe for me to try! It turned out quite well, athough I would probably double the icing recipe next time. A delicious and interesting recipe that is so easy to put together yet looks quite fancy! Thanks for sharing your recipe, JNS!! Made for PAC Fall 2009.

      Definitely the best hedgehog recipe I have come across. Very easy to make and the cherries are fantastic in it. The whole slice disappeared in a flash. Well done
