riv mum - This was a big hit with the kids. Just a few things I would change next time - It wasn't as smooth as I expected so would cook it a bit longer to give the sugar more time to dissolve. I reduced the sugar to 60g but could be reduced even further as it is still very sweet with the honey. It set beautifully. I used macadamias instead of hazelnuts and it tasted great. The quantity was small and barely covered the slice tray. All in all a great recipe, very easy and only a few basic ingredients needed. It would be great as a gift or part of a Christmas hamper.

Uni -  I didn't use a slice tray just a cutting board then the baking paper. Very easy too, just wet hands with veg oil and shaped.
First chopped the chocolate up then blitzed the sugar with the chocolate about 4 times. I did taste a tiny bit, it's very sweet. I couldn't taste the dark chocolate at all (I'm not a fan of dark chocolate). The sugar needs to be cut back by 1/2 IMO but not sure if it would then work. It doesn't set hard, I can eat it straight from the fridge.

Thanks for trying it - I found another recipe that cooks it for a couple of hours - may be best to do a lot more than the Italians say?

A double recipe would fit a slice tray nicely. I had a few gaps in the corners with a single recipe.

Thanks for the bump, CC.  That looks easy enough for me to tackle for Xmas hampers.

Thanks but I saw a "quest" reviewing this and decided it looked so good it had to be bumped ;)

I thought you would be first to make this one, Uni!  I feel almost obliged to make it as Cremona is the only place I have been to in Italy (apart from transitting through Milano).  I guess I will now have to have a go at this this weekend.

It can be great fun checking to see what our users / guests are checking out, they seem to find loads of interesting recipes that we have all forgotten about (or never knew were on here).

Let me know how it goes, Uni.  The thought of using macadamias appeals to me but perhaps the taste of hazlenuts would be more distinctive.
