I have just made these. Naturally I am tasting as I go. Oh Chookie, you have done these perfectly. Thank you. Here is the photo before I roll them into the cylinders. I could have cut my walnuts up a bit more but that will be for next time.

Cookie,  I keep mine in the freezer.  I am taking some out for dinner tonight,  to add to cheese board.  If you think the mix is too moist,  you could add some ground almonds.

Thanks. It is in the freezer, mainly so that I will forget about it.  ;)

Chookie, do you need to wait the month? I was thinking of making some for Dad for Christmas but hadn't noticed the waiting time.

Don't need to wait the month. Took some to a party last night and they loved it.  I thought it was a bit soft but this didn't stop people tucking in and coming back for more.

Thanks Chookie I'm getting the ingredients today so I guess it will have a week to rest.

Made these yesterday but added some preserved ginger with the figs and also added chocolate chips in while the mixture was still warm. It's tastes amazing and while I don't think it would suit a cheese platter I think my Dad will love it. I also wrapped them in rice paper.

I took some out the other night with the salted caramel fudge and they were both very popular.

That's a great idea Maddy, I don't really like the look of the rice paper and think Dad will turn his nose up at that so I might unwrap and roll in crushed walnuts. It's very decadent with the addition of the chocolate and touch a hint of ginger.
