Well, I have made Panpepato for DH :-? . He has been going on about it for years since he had it in Italy and only found it once in the UK. (It's like Panforte which you can readily get here, especially at Christmas)

I found this recipe a couple of years back and thought I should give it a go. I think it is truly vile - there's nothing wrong with any of the individual ingredients, it's the combination I loathe.
I mean, nuts (yum), chocolate (yum), but when you start adding cloves, cinnamon, honey, black pepper etc, the whole thing goes downhill rapidly IMHO. :x I could barely stand the smell of it when I was making it, and I kept accidentally licking my fingers :P :P :P

All I can say is he better like it - it was truly a labour of love!!!

(Maybe I'll make myself some bounties as a consolation :lol: )

I think you need a stiff drink after that!

Not made any sweets for a couple of years and I've been too busy with work and other stuff this year.

I wanted a few little extras to go into the hamper we made up for my mum and dad, I attempted some coconut ice and some last minute cheese straws.

I hadn't made coconut ice since being at school!!! :oops:
