GF, 2 days out of the fridge and sitting on the bench in a sealed plastic container - softer than refrigerated ones but quite OK.  6 hot days on their way so that will be a good test.  Will report again after the weekend.

GF, 5 days out of the fridge and still firm so I'd say you can make them a good week in advance for baskets.  I would advise the recipient to keep them in the fridge once they receive them though as they will last indefinitely in there.

I made a batch of these yesterday.  Have just sliced them up and nibbled on the off cuts from the ends.  Yuuuummmm :)

I have just made another batch of these using a different biscuit and different chopping times/speed. These are the biscuits which make a great improvement to the recipe.

Judy,
That's a winner in our house. Couldn't see the griffin bickies so used  Arnotts. DH loved the 4 he taste tested!
Hidden in the back of the fridge now.
I bought extra strong peppermints not sure what crown taste like?

I used the generic extra strong mints for the first lot then Pascall brand mints for the second batch Denise. Muchy muchy in taste.  Glad DH liked them, don't be surprised if you find him scouring the fridge for some more though LOL.

I haven't been on for ages and then saw this recipe and am so glad I found it. They were really easy to make and are seriously yummy.  I can't believe that so few ingredients can taste so good. I used generic mints and Arnotts as I couldn't find the griffin. Thanks for the recipe Judy.
