White Christmas

My childhood memories of Christmas centre around the kitchen. There was always the aroma of dried fruit and butter boiling away on the stove top for the Christmas cake, delicious fresh cherries and plums in the fruit bowl and shortbread baking in the oven.

Even as little tots we were all allowed to participate in some of the Christmas cooking.  One of my earliest cooking memories is being allowed to make the White Christmas. To a child rarely allowed to eat sweets, being responsible for this treat was the epitome of “all my Christmas’s coming at once!

You can bet that only half the mixture made it to the patty pans!

Traditional White Christmas

Now that I have my own children I like to encourage them to get into the Christmas spirit by baking treats. Little A made these almost single handed.

Ingredients:

  • 550gm White Chocolate (melted)
  • 1 ½ cups rice bubbles
  • 1 Cups desiccated coconut
  • 1 ¼ cups red & green glace cherries (buy from your local health food store for better colour & quality)
  • 80gm pkt Lucky Nuts Pistachio

So tell me readers, were you a “hands on” child in the kitchen.  Did you enjoy “helping” or did you just magically appear when it was time to lick the bowl or eat the spoils?? Will you find a little one and teach them to make White Christmas?

  1. What a clever girl little A is! They look delicious 🙂 I hope you all have a gorgeous Christmas break!! 🙂

  2. It’s so great that you encourage your children in the kitchen. Little A has done a great job with this White Christmas and I can imagine these didn’t last long xx

  3. Children in the kitchen is just how it should be in my opinion 🙂 It does mean the batter disappears surprisingly quickly pre-cooking, but that is all part of the fun! These look great and I love the sparkles on top.

  4. Nice white Christmas Little A my take home ones only just made it home.
