  1. Preheat the oven to 190ºC/Gas Mark 5 and line a 23cm square baking tin with greased baking parchment.
  2. In a large saucepan melt the butter, then add the honey, spread and sugar and stir until they are all dissolved.
  3. Bring the mixture to the boil for 1–2 minutes.
  4. This will make the sugar caramelise to form a really sticky sauce.
  5. Add all the other ingredients, mix really well and pour into your cake tin.
  6. Pat everything down so it is nice and firm, then place in the oven for 20 minutes until the edges go golden.
  7. Leave to cool, tip it out and slice into bars.
