This is inspired by Nigella’s Christmas TV show and I have a LOT of chocolate.  Kind of just did my own recipe as I needed to make a lot for two more Xmas parties (it’s relentless).

You could halve the recipe and make a smaller batch etc…..


  • 450 – 500 gms milk chocolate (can use dark or milk or a combo)
  • 200gms Marie / tea biscuits bashed up in a plastic bag
  • 200gms toasted almonds chopped and bashed up (some small pieces and some bigger pieces)..brazil nuts would work very well here – in fact pretty much any nut you like
  • 100gms of whole glace cherries (optional) – could use dried cranberries or other dried fruit here
  • about a cup of mini marshmallows
  • some icing sugar for dusting

how to make:

  • melt chocolate in a pot
  • as soon as it’s melted add all the other ingredients – the chocolate should just coat everything so it’s dryish’
  • tip into a foil  tray or any other suitable dish
  • allow to cool, turn out, cut into squares, and dust with a bit of icing sugar for a Christmas vibe

Nice little crunchy, chocolatey, fruity bites…..a total success, and think I’m going to have to bang out another batch or two before this Xmas season is over.

make a whole pile for Christmas
