    2 tbsp golden syrup
    100g pecans, roughly chopped

    1 Line a 20cm square baking tin with baking parchment or clingfilm.

    3 Add the pecans, apricots, cherries, rice pops, raisins and pumpkin seeds to the pan and mix well to combine. Stir in half of the chocolate fingers then spoon into the prepared tin.
    4 Spread into the edges with a spoon and push the remaining chocolate fingers and jelly snakes into the mix and scatter with the green M & M’s. Leave until cold and then cover and chill until set firm. Cut into 16 squares to serve.
