Spicy Chocolate Panforte

This Christmas cake (originally from Sienna) has a chewy, almost taffy-like texture which comed from melted chocolate, sugar, honey and (my secret ingredient) melted Tootsie Rolls. A hefty dose of cocoa powder, mincemeat, nuts and seeds gives this a flavour that's hard to resist! I suggest serving this as part of an aged cheese and cracker plate, especially at the holidays.
