Just a Treat Box

Was it just a treat box?

This Christmas we’ve decided to create a special gift for our friends and family members…

It gave me great joy to know that I can make a sweet moment even sweeter 🙂

To be honest I am not the person who does homemade gifts very often…but every now and then, especially if it involves chocolate…I just cannot help myself.

So…here is what Santa left under the tree, just for you!

Homemade Raffaello

Ingredients: 300 g vanilla cream wafers, 1 tbs icing sugar, 3 tbs milk powder, 1/2 unsalted butter, shredded coconut ( a lot 🙂 ).

Method: Crush the wafers, the best way is to place them in a bag and use a wooden rolling pin. Combine the sugar with the butter, mix until you get a creamy texture. Add spoon by spoon the crushed wafers and milk powder.

Add 1 tbs of coconut into the mixture.

Mix everything until you get a paste like texture…then the fun can start.

Using a small spoon make little round balls and roll each candy into coconut flakes.

Dip…roll…and repeat:)

PS. Depending on the size, you will get between 15 to 25 raffaello candies.


 

I’ve also made, Guinness Brownies, Jam Cups and Chocolate Pistachios Shortbread…recipes which I will share with you next time.

 

 

It was a messy, crazy and sticky kitchen…but the end result was delicious taste, happy smiles and a beautiful Christmas.

I hope yours was as you’ve planned as well 🙂

 

Your Girl with an Apron,

Julia

  1. The messy sticky yummy kitchen sounds like so much fun!! We had one day of baking (more of cooking) and the only complaint was how darn hot it was – we had weird weather and unexpected highs so we were sweating with double ovens in! and in hindsight we should have cranked the AC (it was 7o degrees out but hotter indoors) anyhow – thanks for the recipe – 😉
