These are such a treat!
I’m now trying to come up with homemade gluten free goodies for my youngest son who was recently diagnosed with coeliacs, these were a huge hit in the school lunch box and with the rest of the family.
If you are making these as gluten free you will need to check the labelling on your rice puffs as many of them contain barley.
Makes 24 pieces.
200g flaked almonds
200g glacé cherries, washed, dried and halved
150g rice puffs
400g white chocolate
Line the base and sides of a 22x30cm roasting tin with baking parchment.
Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat, add the almonds and toast gently until just colouring a little, tip into a large bowl.
Add the halved cherries, sultanas and rice puffs, stir well.
Melt the white chocolate, pour over the puff mix and stir very well.
Tip into the prepared tin and gently push down into the corners edges.
Allow to cool a little and then pop into the fridge for an hour or two until set.
Remove from the fridge, peel off the paper and cut into slices.
