Make these Christmas sweets for gifts or stock up the tins to treat your visitors at Christmas
White Rocky Road
This version of Rocky Road adds cranberries, hazelnuts and white chocolate to the mix for an elegant Christmas feel.
White Chocolate and Cranberry Biscuits
Add white chocolate and cranberries to a basic biscuit recipe to create these festive cookies. You can, of course, use this mix all year round and add chocolate chips, peanuts, raisins or whatever else is in the cupboard.
Christmas Cake Truffle
These wholesome little truffles have a fruity fudge filling with hints of lemon zest and warming spices. Dipped in pure dark chocolate, each morsel is then rolled in crushed pumpkin seeds and shredded coconut.
White Chocolate Panforte
This white chocolate panforte is deliciously decadent — crunchy macadamia, with a hint of ginger and gooey white chocolate. You could make smaller serves to wrap individually for under the tree.
Christmas Mince and Apple Shortcake
Give shortcake a festive touch by adding Christmas mince. It is delicious served warm with ice-cream or custard, and equally as good served cold the next day, dusted with icing sugar. These are great for a Christmas picnic treat.
White Chocolate Truffles
These decadent white chocolate truffles are sweet and fruity. Toasted hazelnuts give them a lovely nuttiness, and the prettiness of the truffles makes them a lovely Christmas treat.
These light almond-flavoured biscuits are moreish anytime of the day
