    Hi, have just made these, but they don’t look anything like your ones in the picture. I thought the date mixture would be a like a melted chocolate to the cover the nuts/cranberries, hasn’t covered them at all, and doesn’t look like it will set.

    Hi Madeleine! I just made these and I have a question. As I took them out of the fridge I noticed that the coconut oil has separated from the rest of the mixture in some parts, plus the liquid mixture did not seem enough to cover all of the nuts. What did I do wrong?

    Madeleine your comment is too cute! Yes, they do look super yummy. 😉 They look really good but also look so easy and simple to make too actually. Great recipe. They are easy to make, delicious and also healthy too.

    How long will these last once made? :)

    • Madeleine Shaw

      They won’t last very long at all, because they are so yummy! But you can keep them in a box in the fridge for up 3 weeks! xx

      Would love to try and make these.. Can you freeze them? Thanks for sharing your fab recipes xx

      I don’t see why not, but I don’t think they will last long enough to make it to the freezer… they are the dream! xx
