White Christmas

The white christmas of my childhood had copha and milk powder in it, if I recall correctly. A lack of ability to find copha in the shops here prompted the development of this very rich and tasty version. I hope you enjoy it as much as my friends have!

  • 600g white chocolate
  • 2 cups rice bubbles
  • 100g red glace cherries
  • 100g green glace cherries
  • 100g silvered almonds
  • 100g dried cranberries
  • 80g sultanas
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut

  1. Line a 30cm x 20cm (base) baking pan with baking paper. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (don’t let bowl touch water). Fold in the remaining ingredients. Pour mixture into the prepared pan, pressing down with a large metal spoon. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until set.
  2. Turn slice onto a chopping board. Using a knife that has been dipped in hot water, cut into squares. Serve.

most creative. As one who really doesn't like copha- sounds much yummier than the original.
