Sweets and Biscuits

Christmas sweets are some of the best food items of the season. Here are a select few which make regular appearances at our houses:

Budget Christmas Biscuits

This is a great cheat for those who need to come up with something in a hurry (like when a child tells you that they need to bring something for the Christmas bake sale at school at 8:00pm the evening before. Budget Christmas Biscuits are a life saver: Budget Christmas Biscuits

Fruit Mince Slice

A must for those who love fruit mince, but have had enough of pies. This can be made and frozen, and brought out after the season. The recipe can be downloaded here: Fruit Mince Slice

Peppermint Crisp Slice

Who doesn’t love a peppermint crisp slice. This can be made all year round, but can be decorated for Christmas with icing and other sweets. Peppermint Crisp Slice: Peppermint Crisp Slice


Star Biscuits

Any shaped biscuits really – you just need to select the biscuit cutter of your choice. This easy to follow recipe, not only offers  a biscuit dough, but also a fab cocktail to match. Star Biscuits: Coffee Cocktail and Star Biscuits


Rocky Road

I can’t have Christmas without Rocky Road. It is fantastic in individual serves, or in a slice (or cake if you fancy). The chunkier the better – add loads of nuts, cherries, jellies and marshmallow. You can link to the recipe here:  Rocky Road

White Christmas

I love White Christmas, and make a special batch each year with extra cherries and ginger added to the mix. Great to serve with coffees and liquors and can be packaged up and given as a gift. Here is the recipe I use  White Christmas or for something a little different try Chocolate White Christmas
