Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups Kellogg’s Rice Bubbles
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 3/4 cup icing sugar, sifted
  • 1 cup powdered full cream milk
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup mini white marshmallows, finely chopped
  • 2-3 teaspoon peppermint essence
  • 220g Copha
  • 150g dark chocolate
  • 30g extra Copha
  • Candy canes, lightly crushed
  • Small red and green jelly beans
  • Christmas themed edible decorations (see note)

Method

  1. Combine the dry ingredients and peppermint essence in a mixing bowl.
  2. Melt the Copha in a microwave on High or in a saucepan. Cool slightly then pour onto dry ingredients and mix well. Press 1-2 tablespoons of mixture into a greased 24-hole mini muffin tin. Freeze for 5 minutes to firm.
  3. Remove white Christmas from tin. Repeat with the remaining mixture to make 48.
  4. Place the treats onto a baking paper lined tray. Melt extra Copha and the chocolate in a microwave on High. Stir to combine. Use a teaspoon to drizzle over the white Christmas treats to represent custard on a pudding. Working quickly, before the chocolate mixture sets, decorate with crushed candy cane, jelly beans or edible Christmas decorations.

NOTE: Candy canes and edible Christmas decorations are available during the festive season from the baking aisle of large supermarkets and speciality cake decorating stores.
