I like the idea of having edible Christmas Tree decorations and Cherry is really enjoying doing Christmas activities this year so last week we made some.
They are basically just rice krispie bites wrapped up so really easy to make and Cherry loved it.
You will need:
– Rice Krispies
– Chocolate, we used white but you can use any you like
– Cake sprinkles
– Clear Wrap, I found mine in the florist section of Hobbycraft
– Ribbon / Yarn
Start by mixing the rice krispies with the cake sprinkles, I put all the sprinkles in little pots as Cherry likes to add them all really slowly mixing it up every time. It kept her entertained for ages.
While Cherry was mixing it all I melted the chocolate in the microwave, you can also do it in a bowl on top of a saucepan with boiling water in but it takes a lot longer.
Mix the melted chocolate into the dry mix.
Then scoop onto trays covered in greaseproof paper or silver foil.
Leave them to set, this happens quicker if you put them in the fridge.
These lovely melamine plates are from Buddy and Bear.
Once they had set I wrapped the clear film around them and tied some yarn around then tying at the top to make a loop.
I was looking at this photos thinking they would look really nice with a big bow tied around them too, in any kind of festive ribbon to match your theme.
If you enjoy baking and need any equipment then Housemakers have some great offers on their baking range.
Do you have any edible decorations on your tree this year?
