I usually make shortbread, apricot balls and a couple of different types of rum balls to celebrate the festive season, so this recipe for Plum Pudding Truffles caught my eye. Not sure I’ve got the time to make them this year, but they do sound pretty good, maybe next year.
How many functions do you go to during the festive season where it’s a case of ‘bring a plate’? This slice could be the answer. Easy to make, decorated with white icing and red and green cherries to give a Christmasy feel – job done.
These almond biscuits are thin and crispy and delicious.
These no-bake snowballs have an interesting combination of ingredients – cornflakes, coconut, jam, cake or biscuits – all held together with copha. Don’t think that makes a light and fluffy mix, which is sort of what I’d expect from a snowball, but it does make a tasty treat.
This was quite a favourite back in the 80s, but I haven’t made it for a long time. Understandably not everyone’s a ginger fan, but if you are give it a try – it’s really good.
Lovers of white chocolate will enjoy these. They’re a great combination of dried apricots, coconut and, of course, white chocolate.
