Homemade Christmas Treats

Every year I make some form of Christmas treats for people.

I’ve made truffles, fudge, cookies, and cake in the past, and this year I chose to make chocolate bark. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s basically where you make a melt some chocolate, spread it into a big slab, decorate it and snap it into pieces!

Here are the different flavours I made today:

Dark Chocolate and Mixed Fruit:
This was an easy one! I got a big bag of mixed dried fruit including raisins and citrus peel, then scattered it over a pool of dark chocolate.

After Eight:
I bought a tube of the mini After Eights and cut them up into little pieces, and also crushed some green Smarties to match with the minty theme. I used dark chocolate for the base.

Millionaire’s Malteaser:
I crushed a load of Malteasers over a base of milk chocolate, and then I used a topping mixture from Cake Angels that included little pieces of fudge, chocolate and gold stars.

Chocolate Orange:
Again I used milk chocolate for this one and put mini chocolate orange segments on the top. I crushed orange smarties and spread them out too.

Cherry Bakewell:
I marbled dark and milk chocolate together and threw dried cherries and chopped almonds on top.

Oreo:
This slab is made of milk and white chocolate swirled together with crushed Oreo’s and white chocolate stars on top.

White Chocolate and Cranberry:
A simple but classic combination of white chocolate and dried cranberries, sprinkled with white chocolate stars.

Walnut and Ginger:
I crushed ginger biscuits and walnut halves and scattered them on a white chocolate base, then sprinkled some gold sugar rocks on top.

Have you made any festive treats this year?
