I made these sweets in the same way as last years Christmas treats so thought it would be nice to have them on the list for this years recipes.
All you need are the fruits you soaked in the raspberry liqueur earlier this week, 200g plain chocolate, 50g white chocolate, 1 tube of ready rolled marzipan.
Melt both lots of chocolate in separate bowls and leave to cool slightly. Wrap the alcohol soaked apricots and prunes in a little marzipan, make sure you secure all the edges etc so that none of the ‘juice’ escapes! Using two forks, dip the marzipan into your bowl of chocolate and coat completely. Transfer from fork to fork until most of the excess chocolate has dripped away. Place them carefully onto baking paper.
Drizzle with the white chocolate…add as much or as little as you like.Box up, make pretty and enjoy xxx
One way to use up an left over melted chocolate – pour some popcorn into the bowl with the chocolate and mix gently. Turn out onto baking paper and drizzle with any left over white chocolate. Leave to harden then break into pieces and jar. A lovely little Christmas movie snack!
Hows the Christmas prep going? Is anyone finished yet? I still haven’t made my list but I caught Santa looking at Kitchen Aid mixers the other day – I’m wondering if I’ve been THAT good this year!
