Monday was an eventful day here. I had big plans, but was distracted first by having an accident in the car whilst reversing out of our driveway and then hearing the news of the siege in Sydney. My distraction led me into the kitchen where I would find a box of Malteasers which would have been consumed if not for the creation of this Malteaser Christmas Tree. Unfortunately I did not have any Lindt Lindor Balls – which would have been more appropriate. It’s super easy to make.
- 250g malteasers or more if you like to eat and work at the same time
- 50g cooking chocolate – dark
- 25g cooking chocolate – white
- 1/4 candy cane
- Baking paper approx A4 size
- a paper plate and foil to cover plate
- With some foil cover a paper place
- Melt dark chocolate in microwave
- Assemble bottom row of tree, using 9 balls of malteasers (use more if you want). Dab some melted dark chocolate to secure the malteasers to the place
- On the sheet of baking paper, assemble the smaller rings using 8, 7, 6 and 4 balls of maltesers. Allow to set
- Construct the tree by using the melted chocolate to secure each of the rings to the place base. Use I malteaser to complete the tree. Allow to set
- Melt the white chocolate in the microwave, then drizzle over tree
- Crush a candy cane and sprinkle over the tree. Keep in a cool spot until ready to serve.
If you want to give it away as a gift , wrap in some cellophane and tie with some fancy ribbon! Voila!
And if you do make this be sure to show me your creation!
