As you might have guessed by now, I like to represent special holidays with my art.
This year I decided to draw a picture that expresses how this time of year always makes me feel (ie: a cross between an excited seven-year old and Father Christmas)…
Last year I made my very own homemade Christmas bon-bons. As much as I’d love to do that again I just don’t have the time, but I made sure I found enough time to make some homemade Rocky Road. Click here for the exact measurements, but really, it’s so incredibly simple…
…you just brown some slivered almonds and dry-fry some shredded coconut
…add to a large bowl of mini Oreos (I couldn’t find them so I just broke up some big ones), raspberry lollies and pink and white marshmallows.
Melt some (really good) dark chocolate…
…then pour over the mixture.
Mix together, then spread out evenly in a pan and pop into the fridge for twenty minutes.
Slice up the pieces and decorate as you wish. Last year I put some chocolated-covered almonds in with them, this year I decided to go with wafers instead.
They make an eye-catching and inexpensive, delicious gift for your friends or co-workers etc. Enjoy!
