Of a White Christmas.
And this is every bit as saccharin sweet as Bing's Song.
To accompany yesterday's Strawberry Jam, I have made White Christmas Bars.
My recipe is an adaptation of a magazine clipping, substituting dried cherries for the cranberries, and white chocolate chips for the dried pineapple.
Almond and Cherry White Christmas
1 cup sifted icing sugar
2 cups rice puffs
1 cup desiccated coconut
115g toasted, slivered almonds
2/3 cup sultanas
2/3 cup chopped dried cherries
2/3 cup white chocolate chips
Line the base and sides of a 18 x 28cm pan with baking paper.
Combine all of the dry ingredients, then melt copha (I melt mine in the microwave in 30 second bursts) and mix well. Pour into prepared pan and press until even.
Chill until firm then slice.
The above recipe made me about eight bars, but of course these could have easily been cut into smaller, mouthsize squares.
