You will need: chocolate; things to mix into chocolate, I used chopped walnuts in the trees and sunflower and linseeds in the baubles and holly, dried fruit would also be nice; chocolate moulds; coloured foil; pan and bowl for bain marie; sticky tape and thread or ribbon for hanging 🙂
Set up your bain marie (bowl over pan of hot water for gentle melting of chocolate) and melt chocolate, then stir in your added ingredients.
Spoon into moulds, I added some white chocolate buttons to the seedy ones which worked very deliciously (they didn’t all make it to the tree). Allow to cool and set, fastest in the fridge, and then persuade out of moulds.
Now comes the part where you get to feel like a ham fisted Generation Game contestant! Wrap them in foil as neatly as possible 🙂
Tape your threads/ribbons on:
Hang on tree, give away or scoff instantly 🙂 Enjoy festive comments such as, “can’t we just eat them all right now?” and “please don’t call them seedy balls”…
