Blogmas Day 15: Christmas No Bake Treats

I know how hectic Christmas can get there are so many festive things you want to fit into the month of December but you can’t, I have made 3 easy no bake Christmas treats that will be sure to free up some time for other festive activities.

 

Oh crispy tree oh crispy tree

No bake treat number one is rice crispy Christmas trees, for this you will need:

  • 3 bars of white chocolate ( you can use more or less depending on how many trees you want to make. )
  • Rice crispy’s I just bought a full box for good measure.
  • Green gel food colouring x2
  • festive sprinkles
  • icing sugar

First you need to break up all your white chocolate into a baking blow, making sure you can get the chunks as little as you possibly can.

You now want to take a pan and fill it with water and bring to boil, when your water is boiling place the bowl with the chocolate over the pan and slowly slur the chocolate around until its fluffy melted.

Once the chocolate is melted remove from pan but be careful it is hot and then add enough crispeys and than mix in, until the chocolate fully covers them.

Once they are completely covered in chocolate you need to take your gel food colouring and add it to mix, and stir into the cripseys.

Once the green is mixed in with the rest this is where you get your hands messy, and take some of the mixture and mould it into little Christmas tree shape cones. Take a tray and cover it with cling film to stop the chocolate from sticking to it, and than put the mixture in the freezer for 10 minuets so the mixture hardens.

Once your mini Christmas trees are frozen you can now get to the fun part of decorating, using some left over melted chocolate I stuck on some festive sprinkles and dusted them with icing sugar. There you have mini festive Christmas trees, let me know if you’re going to make these.

Christmas bark

This is probably the easiest one out of all three to make Christmas bark you will need:

  • 2 bars of chocolate
  • 1 little bar of white chocolate
  • M&M’s
  • Festive sprinkles

No automatic alt text available.

First you need to break up your chocolate bar into a heat proof bowl and place on a pan of bowling water, then stir until the chocolate is fully melted.

Now you need a flat container like a brownie tin or tube and wrap that in cling film, once your chocolate is melted you can than pour it in to the brownie tin or container of your choice.

With the white melted chocolate you have, you need to take a little spoon and drizzle as you please over your milk chocolate.

Now the best part you can really go to town with sprinkles, sweets and anything else you want to add to make your chocolate bark have that yummy festive touch.

Once you have done decorating your chocolate bark you need to pop it in the freezer for 10 minutes, and once it frozen you can get out and break it in to big chunks for everyone to enjoy.

We all know of the traditional Christmas puddings with holly on top and beautiful cream running down the sides, but these puddings aren’t everyones cup of tea so these a quick sweet alternative. For these little puds you will need:

Now at this point I think I totally got lost in the moment and forgot to take photos of the next steps but they are pretty simple, you need to mould your mixture into little balls and place on a clean filmed tray. Than take your melted white chocolate and slowly pour some of it on your little rice crispy balls, before it sets you need to add in the little holly I took some little festive sprinkles and used them to make mock holly. Once you have done this freeze for 10 minuets and ta dahh! quick and easy yummy puds!
