Festive White Chocolates

Festive White Chocolates | Vagabond BakingA festive post all the way from very festive Switzerland!

I made these cute little Christmas chocolates over the weekend, they are extremely easy, just melted white chocolate and a little mix in of what ever you fancy!

Simple, in fact so simple I’m almost embarrassed to blog them.

Almost.. but they look so adorable huh!

You could turn this into a fun activity for the kids over the holidays, I’m sure they’d love mixing their favourite ingredients into the melted chocolate.

I’ve added some pretty ribbon into some of the chocolates, how cute would they look hanging on the tree? They would also make a lovely gift if you put them in a gift box or tin with some tissue paper.

All you need is a festive silicon ice-cube tray or some proper Christmas deep chocolate moulds and you’re good to go!

Festive White Chocolates

  • 300 g white chocolate
  • anything you like to flavour your chocolates, I used: desiccated coconut, vanilla seeds from a pod, lightly toasted and crushed sliced almonds and candied fruit {for cake mixes}. You could also use dark chocolate chips, dried cranberries/blueberries, crushed cookies, orange zest, rice crispies, popping candy… the list is endless!

Break the chocolate up in the small chunks and melt in a bowl over a pan of barely simmering water, ensure the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Alternatively, carefully melt the chocolate in a microwave. I prefer the pan method as I can keep my eye on it better.

To make a selection of chocolates, pour about a quarter of the chocolate into a small dish and add your chosen flavour.

Mix well then fill your moulds.

If you want to add ribbon, I would recommend wrapping the ends going into the chocolate with a small piece of foil to make it easier to remove when it comes to eating it.

I added about a tablespoon each of the candied fruit, the almond slices and the coconut to the dishes of melted chocolate.

I slit open a vanilla pod and scraped out half the seeds for a quarter of the chocolate. This is a brilliant way of showing children where the favour of their ice cream/milkshake comes from!

The seeds look amazing in the chocolate and give a wonderful flavour.

The candied fruit looked so colourful, gem-like and festive, lovely and chewy in the chocolate too.

For the sliced almonds, I toasted them in a dry frying pan until lightly coloured then crushed them a bit with the end of a rolling-pin.

After filling the moulds, I popped it in the fridge to set for a few hours, then popped them out. Easy-von-peasy!

    Love love love! Love the chocolate, christmassy-ness, snow, revolving restaurant and EVERYTHING Bond. How fantastic to go to the places from the films – I travel a lot and it had never occurred to me!

    So COOL that you got to eat in the same restaurant from OHMSS !! It must have been gorgeous up there rotating and seeing the views in all directions. I didn’t know you were collecting photos in Bond locations, but now I’m looking forward to seeing lots more in the future!

  7. These look so festive and super scrummy! I can’t wait to try making some myself. Actually, after reading your post I’m imagining them paired with James Bond right now… Now that would be a pretty wonderful Christmas! TYT.

  8. Delicious – and even your background image is delicious. I bet you’re a wonderful, baking type of mother 🙂 You can’t beat memories of home cooking…

  9. Adorable..absolutely adorable! Perfect for the holidays! I love the colored ones and the ribbon ones…great idea! I just love this time of year!! Your pictures are just lovely!

    • Thank you, I fell in love with that ribbon, I couldn’t wait to use it. I’m going to string some cookies on it next I think. If I get the chance before Christmas {which is very fastly approaching!} xxx
