      a terrible reciepe i do lots of baking, tray bakes and cooking and this recepie is the worst i have encountered it took more than 750 grams of icing sugar to get it even almost stiff and then dipping it into melted chocolate and then coconut, what a mess and completely unusable and unpalettable recepie. Truly awful if anyone has better ideas for this please post them.

      Thank you

      Very, very very sweet! But yumm!! I used 100g of little pieces of coconut, grounded those a bit more before roasting, but I guess could have add ust a bit, so it would not be so sticky forming the rectangles. Or maybe little balls would be a nice idea for a change, cos they are so sweet :) Tasted nice though. Also covered with home made chocolate gravy, that was based on cocoa and as it chilled in the fridge, it left nice coating. Thanks for recipe!

      In New England, I am of Scottish descent, these are known as needhams and use the exact same recipe. I would assume the neame came from 'need em!' Either way these are wonderful and a never miss for me to make at Christmas time for us and as gifts. Love them and thank you for sharing this recipe which goes back many generations here! Folks make these and you will NOT be disappointed!
