I love White Christmas, but the thought of Kopha in it puts me off a bit, so I decided to play around with some recipes I found to make my own version. This one doesn't have the traditional kopha found in most recipes and also I haven't added sugar because, honestly, there is so much chocolate in it that it just doesn't need it, sweet tooth or not.
The kids love it, and it's great for adults too - a nice special occasion treat to have around Christmas time. You can make these ahead and store them in an airtight container in the fridge until needed (if they last).
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes melting time
1 hour setting time in fridge
Makes: 18 servings
Ingredients 365g white chocolate - either a big packet of white chocolate buttons or 2 family blocks.
3 tablespoons coconut oil
1/2 cup pistachios (optional if you don't like them)
1 cup mixed dried fruit (such as sultanas and peel)
1 cup rice bubbles or similar
Put chocolate into a bowl with coconut oil (break up if using a block). Place bowl on top of a large pot filled about 7cm (2-3 inches) with water boiling to melt it without getting chocolate wet.
You'll know its done once it reaches a creamy consistency.
Meanwhile place dry ingredients into a bowl and mix to combine.
Next, pour chocolate mix on top of dry mix and stir to combine.
Pour into a lined 20cm x 20cm dish and refrigerate for 1 hour.
When set, remove from fridge and cut into bite sized pieces. Can be stored in an airtight container until needed.
