Christmas Candy No Bake Quicky

Have you got a Christmas shin dig coming up this week where you are required to present a plate for the table?  Are you quickly turning into a frazzled  pre Christmas Crazed Chaos magnet, like me?  Do you want to inspire thoughts amongst your circle of Domestic Goddess in your direction?  If you answered yes to any or all of the above, then this no bake Christmas quicky is for you!!!!!

You only need 3 ingredients, a hammer and a zip lock bag.  And preferably a willing Beach House Brat equivalent to assume the smashing position.

Melt about 40-50 g of white Chocolate in the microwave according to the directions on the pack ( that's not baking in my book)

Smash 4 candy canes. Dip marshmallows in melted chocolate.  Sprinkle smash over the top.  I dipped it at first but found it looked better if I sprinkled.

This candy coated marshmallow idea is floating around the blogosphere and I can't claim it as mine. I would love to credit it, but can't remember where I found it.  I can't claim to have invented the Christmas tree either, but I haven't seen these little sugar pops styled in this way.  I took an extra plate of these along as it didn't take many to construct the tree.

I have to tell you this Christmas tree was a hit and my Domestic Goddess status remains completely intact.  At least in the outside world anyway.  Not sure though, if it will ever be truly reinstated at the Beach House by those who know me so well, but I do try.

I installed a poinsettia star at the top.  If you can't come up with this, a sticker or any other design would be just as effective.  The general verdict by those in attendance was, eyes rolling back in the head, Christmas culinary climax style!!!

  7. Hello,
    I visited your blog today - I saw you on 'Cottage and Broome.' Your blog is so pretty, and you have many creative ideas. I love those candy cane hearts. I've seen those on another blog once, and I wanted to make them this Christmas. While I was scrolling down, I noticed the Santa yummy. Me and my daughters started a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. My daughter went to Australia a couple of years ago and had a wonderful time. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.
