DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 320°F and line a 9" square pan with parchment.
  • Stir sugar, honey, butter, Tootsie Rolls, chocolate and mincemeat in a pan over low heat for 3-5 minutes until sugar dissolves.
  • Sift flour, ground almonds, cocoa and spices into a large bowl.
  • Add zest, nuts, figs, apricots, salt and mince mixture.
  • Stir to combine well – it will be quite stiff.
  • 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).
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes, until firm and dull-looking on top.
  • Cool in pan, then invert onto a board and dust with icing sugar.
  • Cut into 36 pieces.
  • 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.
