Ingredients : 
4 cups cornflakes
150g macadamia nuts, chopped roughly
2 cups dried fruit mix*
1 can (397g) sweetened condensed milk
200g chocolate

* This can be a combination of dried fruits such as sultanas, raisins, cranberries, blueberries, etc as well as dried peel and glace cherries. The only limit is your imagination!

Method : 
Preheat oven to 180C (or 170C fan forced).
Line a 13″ x 9″ baking tray with baking paper.
Combine cornflakes, nuts and dried fruit into a mixing bowl.
Stir in condensed milk and mix well.
Press firmly into baking tray, and bake for 15 – 20 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.
Allow to cool slightly (around 10 minutes) and turn out onto a cooling rack.
Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl, and sit on top of a saucepan of just simmering water.
Melt chocolate. Be careful not to let it burn.
Spread evenly onto one side of the slice. Make a pattern with a fork if desired.
Once the chocolate is just set, slice into single serves.
Allow to cool completely, then store in an airtight container.
