Trust me these aren't rock like in the slightest. If you have kids in Year 7 of the local senior school the chances are that your child has come home with these. They're really nice and very moreish. My kids don't like the same dried fruit so we left adding this till the end, split the mixture into two and added raisins into one half and glace cherries into the other.
PS - My 11 year old made these with minimal supervision, I haven't actually made them myself!
PPS - I haven't made the GF version, I have always had success previously with 1:1 swap between flour and GF flour.
