Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Combine dried fruits in a bowl and pour the bourbon, triple sec and sherry over the fruit. Let the fruit macerate for about 4 hours (or longer), stirring every 30-60 minutes, or until most of the liquid has been absorbed.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Combine cake mix and spices, then add the eggs, egg yolk, oil, honey, orange zest and vanilla extract until everything is mostly combined. Mixture may be looking like there isn't enough liquid, but don't be concerned just yet. Add nuts and soaked fruit, including any remaining liquid (probably 1-2 Tbs.). Stir to thoroughly incorporate the fruit and nuts evenly and to make sure that there are no dry spots in the mixture.
  4. Pour into prepared pan and spread it evenly in the pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until lightly golden on top and the edges are just coming away from the pan. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean when done. Cool completely in the pan.
  5. Mix together confectioners sugar and enough orange juice to make a glaze suitable for drizzling over the cooled bars in the pan. Allow the glaze to set and harden for a few minutes, then cut into bars.
