Easy Christmas Fruitbars

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Lambkyns

This is quick, easy and very good. I often use just the candied fruits, as some family members don't care for nuts or dates.

Easy, quick, pretty and very versatile bar cookies for Christmas. I used mixed nuts, apricots, candied cherries, raisins and coconut. But I can imagine a lot of combinations that would be good, and this is the perfect recipe to use up leftover bits and pieces of Christmas baking goodies. I'm considering dribbling some white chocolate over to take to a party, but a really nice recipe that you can probably make right now with things you already have in the house.
