I don’t know about you, but chocolate truffles scream of Christmas to me, and how lovely to receive a little box of homemade ones?
They are unbelievable easy to make, yet feel very extravagant and indulgent. You can keep them simple and just roll in cocoa, or decorate with crushed nuts, coconut and edible glitter. Either way they will always taste and look amazing.
A Christmas classic, and one the kids will definetly want to get involved in. They can be decorated in a variety of different ways using icing, sprinkles and sweets. Time to get creative!
Pop the finished Gingerbread Man or Woman into a little cellophene bag for an extra special present for family or friends.
I only recently discovered how easy, and fun it was to make your own honeycomb. Very few ingredients and equipment is needed. The kids love watching the mixture bubble up and grow as you add the bicarb!
If you know someone that has a very sweet tooth then this one is for them.
Cranberry and Macadamia Slow Cooker Fudge
I’m a huge fan of slow cooker fudge as it’s just so easy to make! This version is festive in colour and taste with the white chocolate complimeting the dried cranberries and macadamia nuts beautifully.
This is a quite a safe one for the kids to get involved with. As it’s in the slow cooker on a low heat they can, under supervision, stir the mixture. Much safer than when cooking on the hob as things are hot but not burning.
Cookies in a Jar
We LOVE baking cookies in our house. It makes the house smell amazing, and means there is always a tasty treat around. In my opinion however, cookies are always the best still slightly warm straight from the oven, so don’t always make the best gifts.
This is where cookies in a jar come in. We adapted my double chocolate chip cookie recipe and packed all the dry ingredients into a jar. The recipient just has to add a few wet ingredients and bake for instant cookies. It’s a great present for foodies, or kids that are just starting to learn to bake.
