This is an easy-peasy Christmas treat to make – and eat!

• 100g milk chocolate or white chocolate, chopped

• 100g dark chocolate, chopped

• Seven red smarties/pebbles

• Five-to-six pretzels

• 20 white mini marshmallows

• One red liquorice strip, cut into lengths

• Sprinkles and stars

• Black food writing pen

• Baking paper

• Baking tin/tray

How to…

Line your baking tin with the baking paper. Take two microwave heat- proof bowls (or set a stainless- steel bowl over a simmering pot of water) and melt the chocolates separately – approximately 30seconds. Next, pour the dark chocolate into the baking tin, then pour the milk/ white chocolate on top – gently trailing it through the dark chocolate. The chocolate should spread to a thick slab. Now it’s time to get your reindeer groove on. Take the smarties and arrange over the slab – leaving space between – these are the reindeer noses. Then take your pretzels, snap in half to make two antlers (snap off excess pretzel bits) and press into the chocolate close to the noses. Reindeer sorted, move onto the snowmen. Position your marshmallows in lines of three across the slab. Then taking the scraps of pretzel, fashion snowmen arms and use the red liquorice strip to make scarves. Finally, dust your chocolate with sprinkles and stars and leave the slab to set. Once the chocolate is hard, take your black icing pen to add eyes to the reindeer, and eyes and buttons to the snowmen. Take a knife and cut the bark into pieces around the reindeer and snowmen. Your reindeer and snowmen are ready to gift and devour!
