What do you do when all of the Christmas orders are done and all out the door? You down the pencils and have a bit more family, home and getting ready for Christmas time. Well, that is what I have been doing over the last week or so. The Christmas presents are all bought, made and wrapped and the neglected housework is all (almost) caught up on. And yes, I will admit there has still been some drawing happening, but just doodles (really!!!)
My nine year old and I made a HUGE batch of White Christmas and then divided it up, put it in really cute plastic noodle boxes and gave it as Christmas presents. Below is a photo and recipe for it but no photo of it in the decorated noodle boxes as they flew out the door quicker than I could pick up the camera - sorry, maybe next year :) I found it a great recipe for us to do together, as she did all of the measuring and mixing, and all I did was melt and pour the copha. She had a huge smile when she gave it as gifts and informed everyone that she had made it.
WHITE CHRISTMAS RECIPE
2 cups Rice Bubbles
1 cup coconut
1 cup powdered milk
1 cup mixed fruit
1 cup icing sugar
Melt copha, then add to other mixed ingredients, mix well, set in tin in the fridge for a couple of hours. Cut into squares when set.
