As always the full detailed recipe can be found at the end of the post on the recipe card. This section is just a summary of the recipe.

  • White Chocolate bars- Either cooking Chocolate or regular Chocolate bars
  • Milk Chocolate Bars -Either Cooking Chocolate or Regular Chocolate Bars
  • Broken Chocolate Chip cookies-Shop bought or Homemade- Try my Chocolate chip cookie Recipe
  • Hundreds and Thousands Sprinkles- Or any colourful type Sprinkle will do
  • Smashed Candy Canes- I placed the candy canes in a paper towel and bashed with a hammer. Or you could leave the Candy canes whole-your choice. (I find smashed candy canes give a more minty flavour to the chocolate
  • Marshmallows)
  • Smarties- They look like colourful little Christmas Baubles!

The Basic Steps

  • Pre heat the oven
  • Place 4 bars of chocolate on a lined baking tray
  • Place on the bottom shelf of the oven for 2-3 minutes (mine took 2 1/2 minutes ). Test with a skewer, if it sinks all the way through, their done. You don’t want the chocolate to turn into a puddle, it should still hold its shape(see video on recipe card)
  • Immediately drag a skewer through the chocolate blending each into the other
