Serves: 20
Ingredients
  • 300g good quality milk Chocolate (or dark if you prefer)
  • 300g good quality vanilla white chocolate
  • A selection of chopped nuts and dried fruit to sprinkle
Method
  1. Using star shaped and circular shaped cookie cutters, or cut the shape from a piece of cardboard, draw around them, making a total of 20 shapes onto a piece of baking parchment.
  2. The chocolate will make at least 10 shapes in each colour depending on how thick you make the chocolate when you form the shapes.
  3. Break the milk chocolate into a bowl and melt using the microwave in 30 second bursts until it's smooth.
  4. Once the chocolate has melted turn over the parchment so that you can see the outlines through the paper. You don’t want to get pen on the chocolate.
  5. Using a teaspoon spoon some of the chocolate onto the first shape and coax it in to the shape on the paper with a cocktail stick.
  6. Add more chocolate a bit at a time until the star shape is formed. Don't worry if the shape is a little wonky it adds to the charm.
  7. Sprinkle with chopped nuts and fruit.
  8. Decorate the stars and discs and repeat.
  9. Repeat the entire process with the white chocolate.
