White Christmas

White Christmas

I‘m Dreaming of…

Experiencing a white Christmas is on my family’s bucket list but for now we just need to be satisfied with the Christmas sweet, White Christmas.  Christmas in my part of the world is hot but a slice of this Christmas cheer gets you in the mood for special times with family and friends.  Perfect for gifting it is an easy to make, no bake treat that is simply irresistible.  White Christmas is the stuff of my childhood and is also perfect for children to make as it is simple involving melting and mixing and nothing else.

My slice includes dried fruit and you can incorporate fruits that suit your taste.  I use sultanas or raisins and glacé cherries but you could also use chopped apricots and dried mango or pear.  The wonderful thing about White Christmas is it literally takes 10 minutes to make and then half an hour in the fridge to chill and set.  I keep it in the fridge until it is time to serve because it lasts longer – both because of the heat and because if it is in sight of my family they would eat it all!

Simple With Delicious Ingredients

The ingredients in White Christmas aren’t fancy.  It simply uses rice puffs (Rice Bubbles), powdered milk, copha or coconut oil, dessicated coconut and dried fruit.  Some people put lollies in theirs but I am a bit of a purest.  If there is a way to incorporate something a little healthy into a sweet I will do it!

This year I am bagging up this as a treat for family and friends.  I hope they enjoy it as much as we do.  It gives me a great deal of satisfaction to gift home made treats which are made with love and are delicious.  I hope you can enjoy some White Christmas during the 12 days of Christmas.
