You could leave out the Cashews or Sultanas (if used) to add after the mixture is cooked and is cooling.

Mix the ingredients well in a bowl or pan that can be used in either a Microwave Oven or put on heat (Gas or Electric).

Set the Microwave to 50% power and cook for 5 to 15 minutes sessions (about 3-4) at a time until the mixture is quite thick.
Gas/Electric Heat:

Turn on the heat and keep stirring until the mixture is thick enough to be poured into a pan or plate.

In either case, pour the thick mixture into a pan/plate that has been lined with baking paper spread with either Butter, Oil or Spray Oil.

When it starts to set, mark the mixture in 1 inch/2.5 cm squares and let it sit until hard. Enjoy!
