Mini grinches

Notes:

  • You could use bigger marshmallows, even throw in some watermelon cut into star-shapes on top of the grinches’ ‘hat’.
  • These Cranberry and pistachio biscotti are a delicious and sophisticated homemade gift.
  • These Caramel Christmas apples are a delicious take on toffee apples for the festive season.
  • You can make these Christmas chocolate spoons with the kids and enjoy some family time as you decorate them together.
  • These Edible glitter berries are the perfect addition to a platter, buffet table or even on the top of your favourite chocolate cake.
  • You can make these Christmas tree biscuits if you enjoy traditional shortbread. We topped them with a Jaffa and a shower of icing sugar.
  • You can make these Christmas ginger joy biscuits and thread them on string like we have. They make a delicious Christmas garland.
  • These little Meringue Christmas trees are dipped in chocolate and decorated with crunchy candy canes.
  • These Christmas crackles are also a fun cooking activity for kids. You can make them in mini cupcake sizes. They look like tiny Christmas puddings.
  • If you are looking for a simple homemade dessert for kids then this Christmas Yule log is the perfect buffet dessert. We topped them with sweet little snowmen made from ready-made chocolates.
  • These Christmas tree cupcakes are a delicious take-along addition to any party and very easily shared with friends.
