    Default Christmas cooking / sweets recipes

    No bake christmas recipes that can be made in advance:

    Rocky Road (quick and easy)

    300g Chocolate
    150g Marshmallows
    2 x Turkish delight bars
    Handful of Peanuts (can be ommited)
    1/3 cup Coconut

    Mix whatever quantities you like and leave in a tray to set, cut with a warm knife.

    Monkey Balls (rum balls without rum)

    1 pckt Milk arrowroot biscuits
    1/3 cup Cocoa
    1/3 cup Coconut (plus extra to roll in)
    1 tin Condensed milk

    Mix all ingredients, roll into balls and roll in coconut and chill.

    Chocolate ripple cake

    1 Pckt Chocolate ripple biscuits
    600ml Cream (whipped with some icing sugar - you won't need all of it)

    Sandwich cream and biscuits together - wrap in gladwrap (moulded into a container) - leave a day or two in the fridge for the biscuits to soften. For an adult version, dip every 2nd biscuit in Baileys or Kahluha.


    Have fun not baking :-)

    Yum!! Thanks. Love the sound of a no bake cake that includes kahlua!

    Googled a cranberry and white chocolate cookie that looks easy too.

    I am pretty boring and just make rum balls and shortbread.

    There are heaps of great Christmas recipes on Pinterest though!
