Ok – here are a couple of things we made to sell at the carols by candlelight
Coconut Ice. Which I don't like at all, but it looked pretty
These are a cool idea. Mini puds. (As in christmas puddings that you USA lot don't eat.) Just dip the marshmallow in melted chocolate, then put a jaffa and a spearmint leaf on top. Kids love 'em. Karen – do NOT tell me you don't know what a jaffa is. They are those red lollies. But the original ones had an orange flavoured shell.
And the one true christmas food as far as I'm concerned. Rum Balls. We always make these the week before christmas. I used to make them for the kids to give to teachers as gifts as well.
1 x pack of milk arrowroot biscuits – crushed
3 dessertspoons rum – I usually add a bit more, we like 'em strong
3 tablespoons cocoa
3 dessertspoons coconut
1 x tin condensed milk
Mix them together then roll into balls and roll in some more coconut
Do we only have milk arrowroot biscuits here in Australia I wonder. If so just replace them with a plain biscuit. Like something you'd crush to use as a base in a cheesecake. But no ginger, or sugar coated, Just plain biscuit.
