I have illusions every year of undertaking Christmas baking that is really going to impress. I’m not talking about the king of baking that you just eat and enjoy, but rather the type that people look twice at.
People comment on it.
They mention how good it looks
The taste buds dance and people revel about how awesome it tastes.
And best of all, they start making comments that they would never be able to make such a creation themselves and continue to remark how oh so clever I am.
This is not that type of Christmas baking! Sorry to burst the bubble, but I did say, I have the illusion. The reality is always different.
What this baking is however is something that anyone and everyone can do, including the kids.
It tastes great.
It looks interesting enough to eat.
It looks naughty enough to only eat at Christmas
And people will comment to you. They will ask for the recipe so that they can try it themselves at home. I’m talking about the super awesome white Christmas slice.
What is a White Christmas Slice?
If you havn’t encountered it before, then the white Christmas slice might just become your new favorite Christmas treat. It is simply a slice which contains rice bubbles, coconut and mixed fruit.
White Christmas slice is an easy to prepare treat that the kids will have a lot of fun with. That’s why it’s so popular. Anything easy at Christmas time is a huge plus. This white Christmas slice has the addition of chocolate M&M’s, just for some added fun.
This is the kind of Christmas baking that won’t make it into the magazine of Martha Stewart, but it will be asked for at every Christmas party you attend.
So forget the illusion and run with something that you know you can do. Let’s face it, you are still stepping up a notch from grabbing the nearest box of chocolates at the grocery store.
My 5 year old daughter helped me make this slice, which just proves how easy it is to do. The decoration could be prettier if you were to do it yourself, but where’s the fun in that.
Kids love to help with baking, especially the decorating, and this is perfect for them.
6 Easy Steps To A Delicious But FUN White Christmas Slice
If you can mix some ingredients together and throw it in a pan, then this is the Christmas dessert for you.
Step 1: Start off by separating the dry ingredients from the chocolate and copha.
Step 2: Cover a 22 cm round pan with baking paper and put aside.
Step 3: Fully melt the chocolate and copha together.
Step 4: Mix the dry ingredients into the melted chocolate to form a mixture.
Step 5: Place the mixture into the prepared pan and press down firmly ensuring a smooth surface.
Leave to set in the fridge for at least an hour
Step 6: Once set, remove the mixture from the pan and place on a chopping board. Cut into desired wedges.
Tip: The slice can easily crumble in the center, so try and use as sharp a knife as possible.
Step 7: Now it’s time to turn your ordinary white Christmas slice into something extra special and it’s very easy to do.
Simply place a lollipop stick into the bottom of each of the wedges which will start turning the slices into Christmas trees.
Step 8: To complete the Christmas tree decoration, melt the remaining chocolate drizzle this over the top of the tree wedges.
The M&M’s will sit on the top of the melted chocolate to look like Christmas decorations.
That’s it. The white Christmas slice is complete.
If you are looking for that treat to impress this Christmas but really don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen, then this is the perfect slice for you.
I would love to hear what you think of it.
