Made these to take to a Yuletide gathering & THEY ARE OUTSTANDING, & with any luck most of them will still be around for the taking tomorrow! I used my own Dried Fruit Fruitcake that I'd made especially for this by dicing all the dried fruits small rather than, say, just quartering the dates! Really enjoyed putting these together & will be making this recipe again & again! Thanks for posting it! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
These are great i have made them to take to work I made a double batch as my fruitcake was 800g. I used dark fruit cake and cherries also cranberry mineral water as that is the closest thing i had to the liquid. They are so morish u just cant stop at one. I will be making a second batch for sure. Thanks
I just finished making this today, as I had to get a fruitcake from the local grocer. This was everything that was mentioned and then some. I also received fresh oranges from Florida for Christmas so I used fresh orange juice for the "mixture" part. What a great way to use all the wonderful delights of the holiday season, and come up with the special treat. I used white chocolate morsels and melted them in the microwave and topped each with a dollop of the beautiful white chocolate. I added both colors of cherries/green and red, and they were so pretty. These go off with Dennis tomorrow to work, but he will eat one or two I know, when he appears at home at the end of the work day. I will be making these in two weeks for the Christmas Day. What a wonderful treat, I thank you, Chef floWer.
Absolutely delicious. I used a rich dark fruitcake (a gift from a friend) and 2tbsp brandy to compensate for the dark fruitcake. As I was rushed at the time I didn't make the topping as per the recipe but dusted with a dark cocoa powder instead. I'll be making more of these tomorrow and I'll use the topping as per the recipe this time. Wish I could give these more than 5 stars.
WONDERFUL!!! These turned out perfectly and are great!! I didn't even have to make the fruit cake. I live in the U.S. so didn't have any Copha available, but instead used butter flavored shortening and added some shredded coconut to it. Also used a little more than a tablespoon of brandy. These were great! Thanks!
