Is there anything more delicious than chocolate? I think not. As someone with a serious addiction to those slabs of delight, I was more than happy to oblige when I was asked to whip up some Christmas treats with the Cadbury Festive range.
I love everything Christmassy and Cadbury’s got it so right with their chocolate goodies for the season. If you’re a die hard fan of Whispers, you will go crazy for the Dairy Milk Festive Whispers slab, and even more so for the Whispers Snowballs. These little Cadbury Dream coated drops of heaven are back by popular demand and I challenge you not to polish off a bag in one sitting.
New to the festive line up are the adorable Christmas Baubles. There are four available for purchase and each of them are filled with a particular Cadbury chocolate: Cadbury Dairy Milk, Cadbury Flake, Cadbury Top Deck and Cadbury Dairy Milk Bubbly (my personal favourite). As soon as I saw these I immediately thought of what an amazing stocking stuffer they would make, don’t you agree?
I whipped up two delicious treats this week using Cadbury Festive range and I loved them for two reasons:
- They were so incredibly easy to make
- I think they could quite possibly be the most yummy morsels I have ever tasted.
They would also make great gifts if you popped them into a glass jar and decorated it with a festive ribbon, good to keep in mind when it comes to teacher’s gifts!
The first recipe is this to-die-for Cadbury Whispers Snowballs chocolate fudge.
You will need:
1 tin condensed milk
2 x 150g slabs Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate, broken up
1 bag Cadbury Whispers Snowballs
On a low heat, add your condensed milk and broken up Dairy Milk Chocolate to a pot. Stir until the chocolate has melted.
Remove from the heat and add three quarters of your Whispers Snowballs and stir them in carefully.
Line a square dish with baking paper (make sure it covers all the sides) and pour your chocolate mixture in.
Sprinkle with your last Whispers Snowballs, pop it into the fridge and let it set overnight.
Once set, you can cut the fudge up as big or small as you like… and then devour it!
*Just make sure to store this fudge in the fridge so that it doesn’t melt
The second recipe is some good old Festive Peppermint Chocolate Bark.
You will need:
2 x 150g Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate broken up
1 x Candy Cane crushed
Over a double boiler, melt your Dairy Milk Chocolate.
Once the chocolate has melted, stir in a few drops of peppermint essence.
Line a baking tray with baking paper and pour in the chocolate mixture. It should spread slightly by itself but feel free to help it along.
Sprinkle your crushed candy cane over the chocolate and then pop it into the fridge to set over night.
Once it has set, you can break the bark up into pieces and serve!
