STARLIGHT MINT TOPIARY

  • You’ll need a styrofoam ball 15cm in circumference, a square styrofoam base to fit inside a small gift box from your local budget decoration shop
  • 1kg packet of Starlight Mints, a hot glue gun and glue sticks, a 20cm-long piece of dowling and pretty ribbons
  • Paint the dowling using paints from your children’s paintboxes or simply leave it au natural. Wait until it’s dry, then insert it into the styrofoam ball carefully
  • Using the hot glue gun on a low setting (so you don’t melt the lolly), glue a layer of unwrapped mints to the ball
  • Glue another layer on top
  • Add pretty ribbons in whatever colours you fancy
  • Stick the topiary into the styrofoam base, and pile the remainder of the mints into the box to make this part of the topiary edible

  • You will need candles at least 5cm taller than candy canes which are up to 15cm tall
  • Arrange the candy canes, hook side facing out, around the candle and tie firmly with a fairly thick ribbon, or use a rubber band first to stabilise them and then cover it with the ribbon

  • Fill the jars with Merry Xmas Rock Candy
  • Tie a festive ribbon around the top of the jar

CHRISTMAS TREE BROWNIES

Christmas Tree Brownies

shimmer-red-pearls-500g

  • Use a firm, dense brownie mix cooked in a round pan. You don’t want the brownie mix to be chewy or it won’t cut into neat pieces. A chocolate fudge cake mix would hold its shape well and do just as nicely
  • Cut into triangle-shaped wedges
  • Cut the hooks off small candy canes and insert the stems carefully into the brownie triangles
  • Decorate with chocolate frosting, let it set and then use coloured candy piping to create the branches effect
  • Add Mini M&Ms or Shimmer Pearls as the Christmas tree decorations
  • Idea found on new.pamperedchef.com.
