To make the yogurt covering

  1. In another small bowl, whisk together the yogurt, honey, and salt. Microwave on 15 second bursts, stirring in between each burst, until the yogurt is runny and very warm to the touch. Don’t let it start to boil or the yogurt will curdle. (approximately 30 seconds in total)
  2. Whisk the gelatin into the warm yogurt mixture. Whisk until the gelatin is completely dissolved. Scrape the yogurt mixture into a medium mixing bowl. Pour the powdered sugar on top. Use a mixer or whisk until the yogurt and powdered sugar combine into a thick, but pourable, coating.
  3. You can either dip half of the bar into the mixture and then place on greaseproof paper or you can use a spoon and dribble the yoghurt mixture in streaks across the top.
  4. Place the bars in the fridge for 2 hours.
