On Mother's Day I took along to my Mother-in-law's, a fresh from the oven tray, of Chinese Chews for afternoon tea. They were still warm when we arrived.
This slice makes 18 good size bites which ensures everyone will get a taste or two.
I have made these once before - a recipe adapted from Hotly Spice blog - so I was fairly confident the ingredients would be in the cupboard. Its a versatile slice so you can add and subtract the fruit and nuts at will, which is just as well as I had no dates and no walnuts. Instead I substituted prunes and apricots for the dates and almonds for the walnuts. There were no complaints! See recipe instructions and pictures here.
It was a nice chatty afternoon - I don't think one chew survived!
