Everyone loves chocolate don’t they? And making them as presents has been a long running tradition in our house since the kids were tiny (oh dear god that’s 20 years now!) So I thought I ‘d share a favourite with you – simple, quick and easy enough for the little ones to help you!
Snowman chocolate puddles –
2 standard bars of white chocolate
2 candy canes
That’s it – 2 ingredients!
- Unwrap the candy canes and put them in a sandwich bag.
- Bash them with a rolling pin until you have small slightly sparkly pieces.
- Melt the chocolate until smooth and pour into bite size puddles on a sheet of greaseproof paper.
- Sprinkle a little of the candy cane pieces onto the chocolate puddles and leave to cool in the fridge for a few minutes.
Ta-da ! Snow man chocolate puddles!
A very lovely fellow blogger Domestic Goddesque has a similar recipe and so as a nod to her yummy treats we made some dark chocolate puddles too!
2 standard bars of dark chocolate
A handful of dried cranberries
A handful of white chocolate stars
Exactly like the white chocolate – melt it until it’s smooth, form little puddles and sprinkle with the fruit and stars.
And there are a million different ways of doing it – fruit – ginger – edible glitter – sprinkles – anything that takes your fancy (or that you have lying around in the cupboard!)
So happy chocolate making lovely peeps!!
