DJ's in the UK aussiegal7 and from your name I think you might live in Australia ;D  If you can't find cellophane bags in the $2 or homeware stores here, you can always cut squares of cellophane to make your parcels.  Why not pop over to the introduce yourself section on the Home Page and tell us a bit about yourself, where you are from, how long you've had your Thermomix etc.

Bags from  here http://www.lakeland.co.uk/43471/20-Star-Treat-Bags


Made two more lots today for village coffee morning tomorrow.
One with 200g dark chocolate, went a bit crumbly, and the other 200g milk choc.

Will cut up and bag tomorrow.
Update:
Sold out quickly, made 24 for village hall funds. Hope the buyers enjoy it.

If you're in Sydney, you could try here.  They have an online shop  Otherwise, just google cellophane gift bags - there are lots of sites to choose from or else try the "$2" shops . . .

I've made this several times, now . . and just can't get over how easy and simple it is to make - not to mention how impressed the recipients have been!!!  Thank you so much for this recipe, Johnro!!!  :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*

Yes, I agree. I always have the ingredients on hand and ready to go for last minute gifts/morning tea etc.
It's a real winner here as I usually start the process as we sit down for dinner and only get up once or twice to stir it. Then put it in the fridge overnight and it's a fuss free affair :)

First time I've made these and they are great. 

DH is taking a plate of them tonight for a shared table of treats on his last shift before Christmas. 

I would love to try the cranberry/pistachio version too and will try cutting the sugar down by half.  Hopefully it doesn't interfere too much with how it turns out.   Thanks Johnro.  :)

Chai fudge sounds heaven sent.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
