Tasty Stained Glass Christmas Bars

Stained Glass Christmas Bars

Each bar cake cuts into 40 slices.

This bar has always been a big hit wrapping small slices in cellophane making a lovely homemade gift to celebrate the year and bonus it is healthy.

It is full of nuts (zinc) and glazed fruits and is wonderful to have available for the festive season.  It is filling, therefore you only need a little to satisfy your appetite.
