Love It Or Hate It Turkish Delight

I must admit the only person I know that likes Turkish Delight is my dad. He goes mad for it. If you go out shopping to the local shops and bring him a little Turkish Delight chocolate bar back, then he is your best friend forever. Plus no one else likes it, he hasn’t got to worry about someone stealing them!

When he was poorly after having his pacemaker fitted I decided to make him some Turkish Delight to cheer him up and he absolutely loved it and this was the recipe! I am thinking to put this recipe in Cafe Bakery’s menu. So please share your reviews.
