    WhiskingWings's Note:

    This Christmas cake (originally from Sienna) has a chewy, almost taffy-like texture which comed from melted chocolate, sugar, honey and (my secret ingredient) melted Tootsie Rolls. A hefty dose of cocoa powder, mincemeat, nuts and seeds gives this a flavour that's hard to resist! I suggest serving this as part of an aged cheese and cracker plate, especially at the holidays.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 36

    Yield:

    pieces

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 320°F and line a 9" square pan with parchment.
    2. 2
      Stir sugar, honey, butter, Tootsie Rolls, chocolate and mincemeat in a pan over low heat for 3-5 minutes until sugar dissolves.
    3. 3
      Sift flour, ground almonds, cocoa and spices into a large bowl.
    4. 4
      Add zest, nuts, figs, apricots, salt and mince mixture.
    5. 5
      Stir to combine well – it will be quite stiff.
    6. 6
      Press into the prepared pan (I like placing a piece of parchment or cling wrap on the surface and using a second pan to press it evenly).
    7. 7
      Bake for 30-35 minutes, until firm and dull-looking on top.
    8. 8
      Cool in pan, then invert onto a board and dust with icing sugar.
    9. 9
      Cut into 36 pieces.
    10. 10
      Wrap well in plastic and age at room temperature for 1 day, then transfer to an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 month.
