Festive Mars Bar Slice

I am a massive fan of Mars Bar Slice. It always reminds me of childhood. I think it was a staple at all kids parties in the 90s here in Australia. This is my super easy festive spin on it. My son took this batch to school today for the class party. Not healthy in the slightest but a massive hit!  Note to self: Take a better photo of this one. If you make them please come and share a photo on our Facebook page or come and say in our Facebook group. I would LOVE to see them!

Gingerbread Pudding Biscuits

Well it wouldn't be Christmas without gingerbread and I realised I didn't have a gingerbread recipe on the blog. Eek! Time to fix that. I can't take credit for this idea. My mother in law suggested it to me and I got creating. The actual gingerbread recipe is based off of the one I wrote for The Christmas Issue of The 4 Blades Magazine with a few little changes over the years.  I didn't realise how well gingerbread cookies and white chocolate went together. Oh my goodness - it is DELICIOUS!  If you make them please come and share a photo on our Facebook page or come and say in our [...]

Mini Chocolate Christmas Pudding Balls

These chocolate balls are a massive hit in my house and are something we have made every Christmas for as long as I can remember. They don't last long at all. I went to make a batch today and thought I'd get a little creative and turn these delicious little morsels into little Christmas puddings. So cute!  What I love about this recipe is you can add any flavours you like two the mix. Some peppermint essence is great and Christmasy as is half a teaspoon of mixed spice!  If you make them please come and share a photo on our Facebook page or come and say in our Facebook group.

Festive Rudolph Biscuits

So on Monday night I posted my first recipe in a while - my Festive Reindeer Donuts. These were really well received but I got a bunch of messages asking what to do if you don't have a donut machine or tin. Store-bought is perfectly ok and as mentioned in the post, cupcakes and muffins work just as well too.  But it got me thinking - a biscuit is just as easy and cute so thought I would whip up a quick recipe for those wanting a donut/cake alternative. Want a healthier version? Use sliced apple rings. I haven't tried it but think it could be a winner!  If you [...]

Festive Rudolph Donuts

No way!? Am I posting a recipe for etc first time in over 12 months? Why yes. Yes I am. Better late than never right?  It is that time of year where we are often invited to events and asked to bring a plate. These are the cutest little things to bring and share that will get everyone talking - and they are so so easy! My kiddies really loved helping me make these.  The idea for these came actually came from a friend. She posted a photo of a donut from a popular donut shop she was eating and I thought "Heck. I can make my own homemade version [...]
