Following on from my "Festive Makes" post yesterday I thought I would follow this up to show you my "Festive Bakes". Each Christmas I make a variety of chocolates, biscuits and treats to give to my loved ones. This usually entails about 9 hours in the kitchen, but I like to think that the results are worth the effort!
Here are some of the things I made this year:
Rich chocolate truffles, dusted in dark cocoa powder and iced with white chocolate - my trusty tasting team (DH, DS x3 and DD) and declared these as delicious.
Peanut brittle, probably my favourite of all the treats I make, I have to admit that I made a few extra for me to eat...
Vegetarian-friendly Rocky Road, I replaced the marshmallows with glace cherries and candied peel.
Here is everything boxed and bagged ready to go into gift bags.
At this point I must add my personal thanks to the afore-mentioned intrepid taste testing team, who selflessly give of themselves to quality assure the goods before they are dispatched. Truly heroic effort from them as usual this year ;)
Did you make any gifts this festive season? Would love to hear about them!
