    Default Xmas sweet treat ideas..

    Hi all,

    I am planning on making some Xmas treats to wrap up as gifts. I'm really stuck for ideas that are a little different from the standard rum balls, rocky road, white Xmas etc? Has anyone one got some nice Xmas recipes please!

    I'm open to anything really and while I'm not a super cook, I am ok so could cope with something that requires moderate skill.

    Hoping for inspiration.. thank you

    Brownies - I often just do triple choc but have also made rum and raisin ones (same recipe just heat raisin and rum until all soaked up and add instead of nuts)

    Homemade chutney or relish is always good this time of year.

    Do you have a slow cooker?

    Fudge is super easy to make in one. I have an easy recipe for Oreo fudge and it's delicious.

    Otherwise, I think homemade shortbread is a winner.

    Yes I do, and I was wanting to try it with fudge but wasn't sure if it turns out ok. Could I bother you with a recipe plz?

    They look yum! If I don't use for Christmas they may land in next years school lunch box!
