I’m sure I’ve mentioned my family popcorn addiction in the past so this festive gingerbread version is going down a storm here!
Just a little delicious Christmas idea from me today! Snowmen Macarons!
1 x qty Macaron mixture recipe here
Milk Chocolate Ganache
80ml double cream
1 tbsp butter
300g milk chocolate chopped
Thin Christmas ribbon
Cake pop sticks
Makes: 16 snowmen
Mix up the Macaron mixture following the steps just here, very simply flavour the mixture at the meringue stage with a teaspoon of vanilla extract.
A perfect after dinner treat, deliciously simple to make but dark, rich and packing a coffee punch. The white chocolate coating adds a lovely creamy touch just like a Cappuccino! Here are my tips for making, shaping and coating the best truffles around.
How about these miniature cakes – teeny tiny cakes made in mini baking cups from Iced Jems. Just like the cupcake sized Christmas cakes then one full batch of 8” Christmas cake mix is going to make a ton, 50+ of these teeny tiny ones so just make a part mixture or mix up your baking with a variety of sizes, unless of course you want to make 50?!
This is a lovely project to make for gifts – Individual Chocolate Christmas Cakes. Waitrose is heading a #BakeItForward campaign, something lots of us do for Christmas – creating something special for friends. I’m sending some of my individual cakes to Helen at Casa Costello and Jenny at Mummy Makes Cakes – lovely cakey friends with great blogs that I met up with recently.
