Christmas is almost here guys and how this managers to creep up on us year after year is beyond me. And if you're anything like myself, then I'm guessing you're also in a mad rush, attempting to tie up loose ends. Like wrapping Christmas presents or in dire need of another supermarket run (how could I have forgotten the ham?).

I've also found myself rather stuck on ideas for Christmas treats to place around the dessert table this year. It feels like I bake the same things every year like these Rudolph caramel tarts or those beloved chocolate rum balls (but who am I kidding, rum balls are a MUST). So I've been trying to get a little creative this time round. And luckily for me I had the brilliant idea of making my very own chocolates.

To be honest the idea sprung forth after I found this ice cube tray from Typo stashed away in a cupboard. And since laying eyes on it I've been overly eager to put it to good use. I originally purchased this months ago for use during the summer months, wanting to create some cool looking ice cubes and maybe even filling them with fresh berries or cucumber to infuse water. Obviously I haven't got around to doing that just yet but I will; I think.

When it comes to chocolate, who actually doesn't like it? I've had a lustful affair with it since I was very little and after learning about chocolate moulds when I was twelve I've been eager to create my own. Seemingly not from scratch, but the cheats way. By melting actual chocolate and expertly pouring it into moulds.

Easy enough right?

It actually is. Especially if your mould is a silicon one. Those babies just pop out effortlessly. So if you're feeling a little stuck on ideas too then why not try this little treat? These are not only perfect for the dessert table but would also make for some nice little homemade gifts for your loved ones too.

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

 INGREDIENTS:  
Silicon mould
100g white chocolate
1 tbs dried cranberries, roughly chopped
1 tbs salted macadamia nuts, halved
1 tbs rice puffs/bubbles
(depending on your mould, add more of each if needed)

Melt chocolate in a microwave, making sure to stir at every 30 second interval.
Once melted, pour chocolate about half way up moulds, then add one or two cranberries. Using the tip of a spoon or a knife gently push the cranberries into the chocolate.
Repeat for macadamia nuts and rice puffs.
Once done, fill the rest of the mould with remaining chocolate then set aside to cool and harden.

Et Voila.

  25. It's scary how fast time goes by. I'm lazy and would have never thought of making D.I.Y. chocolates, but those cranberry and macadamia nut white chocolate gems look pretty and delicious! Even the Typo ice cube mould from cottonon.com you used whilst making them is a pretty colour.

  32. Those look absolutely amazing! I love anything with macadamia nuts! The cranberry.... not so much. I'm actually allergic to cranberries-- they make my nose bleed uncontrollably.

  41. Well, look at you, Sonia. Aren't you just bursting with talent and creativity:) "Back in the day" when I use to make chocolate and sell it at Easter time, I used those plastic molds which usually worked out okay but when they didn't, oh the horror!!! Silcone is definitely the way to go. I love the notion that you added your own festive touch to these bitesize pieces of yummy. Thanks for sharing, Sonia...Hope you remembered the ham, lol...

    Wishing You and Yours a Joyous Christmas, Sonia..."See" you next year:) Louise
