Christmas Mini Treats


A picture paints a thousand words so above is a photo of Christmas Mini Treats. They look like mini Christmas puddings. So cute! I made them for family and friends last year. There were lots of people and by the time the photo was taken the mountain had become a little mole hill. So the little Christmas mini puddings certainly went down a treat. This recipe is so easy it is ridiculous!
Enjoy ~ Sarah

100g white chocolate
12 mellowpuff chocolate biscuits (cookies)
12 Jaffas (candy)
Spearmint leaves, cut into smaller leaves (OR green snake lollies OR green Jube lollies cut to size)

Place the white chocolate melts into a heatproof bowl. I melted mine in a pot on the stove. You can also use a microwave on Medium/50% power, stirring every minute until they are fully melted.
Spoon the melted chocolate either just with a teaspoon or put chocolate into a sealable plastic bag and snip one corner of the bag to make a piping bag. Pipe enough white chocolate on top of the biscuits, allow to drip down the side to resemble custard flowing over a Christmas pudding.
Place a Jaffa on top and a small spearmint leaf (or green snake or jube lollie) each side of the Jaffa and secure in the melted chocolate.

You can use the same ideas with still using white chocolate (melted) with Jaffas or Round Lollies and mint leaves or green snakes or jubes sliced on top of your homemade or purchased chocolates.

Below is a fun YouTube Video of a Jaffa lollies (candy) rolling event. Where we roll thousands of jaffas down one of the steepest streets in the world which is Baldwin Street in Dunedin, New Zealand.

FYI: Our family use to live in Dunedin and even some cars can’t get up the steep street. Our car could but half way up we would lighten the load by everyone BUT the driver jumping out of the car. Also the brakes start smoking. This amuses the children no end. Doesn’t amuse the parents so much. There is a water fountain at the top of the street which doesn’t come soon enough!!!!!
