150 g Charlesworth Diced Pitted Dates

130 g Charlesworth Macadamia Pieces

130 g Charlesworth Raw Walnut Pieces

140 g Charlesworth Slivered Almonds

180 g Charlesworth Sultanas

250 g Charlesworth Pure Milk Chocolate pieces

Other Ingredients Required

1/4 cup Desiccated Coconut (20g)

1/2 cup Plain Flour (75g, sifted)

1/2 cup Cocoa (65g, sifted)

1/2 cup Icing sugar (80g, sifted)

60 g Butter

1/2 cup 'Thin' Apricot Jam (150g)

1/3 cup Brandy



1Empty the bag of premixed Charlesworth nuts and fruits into a large bowl and combine with the coconut, flour, cocoa and icing sugar. Set aside while preparing the wet ingredients.

2Melt butter and chocolate in the top of a double saucepan, add jam and brandy and mix well. Add this mixture to dry ingredients and mix thoroughly until all mixture is moist.

3Grease and line 23cm flan dish (or cake tin), and spoon in the firm mixture. Using a dampened hand, press mixture very firmly into the dish or tin.

4Bake in a moderate oven (180°) for 35 minutes*. The Panforte may appear sticky and moist, but will become firm once cooled. Remove from tin when cooled. Dust with icing sugar before serving. Delicious when sliced thinly and served with coffee or liqueur.

Can be made 4-6 weeks in advance

Make in: 23cm flan dish or 21cm round cake tin.

*Please beware the edges of this panforte burn easily, please check intermittently. If your oven runs hot we suggest lowering the temperature slightly and cooking for a little longer.
