Traditional white Christmas recipe makeover

There's something reassuring about the traditional recipes that abound during the festive season. Christmas puddings, truffles, gingerbread, mince pies and, of course, a good old fashioned White Christmas slice - these recipes are often passed down and enjoyed through generations. That's why we're bringing out the traditional White Christmas recipe this year, with two modern twists for new ways to enjoy it.

What's in a white Christmas?

The recipe for a traditional White Christmas has remained unchanged for decades. It's familiar, easy and essential to have on offer at Christmas parties, to bring into the office for a festive treat or to make for the kids as edible gifts. So what's in a White Christmas? 

  • Traditional White Christmas is made with rice bubbles, Copha, powdered milk, mixed dried fruit and glace cherries
  • Copha gives White Christmas a lovely silky texture and ensures the slice holds together at room temperature and when gifting.
  • Modern variations may call for white chocolate to be added to the mix. 

How long will white Christmas last?

  • You can keep White Christmas in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. Perfect to make ahead and have ready for any impromptu get togethers or entertaining!

If there's another treat that's synonymous with Christmas, it's candy canes. These mint-flavoured sweets hang from the tree, get stuck into cards and are given out with sweet abandon during the silly season.

This recipe combines that minty candy cane flavour with White Christmas to make a fresh and fun treat. You can get the edible Christmas decorations from the baking aisle of supermarkets or cake decorating stores, or simply use candy in christmas colours. 

Get your kids involved and enjoy making these white Christmas minty treats for their friends or your festive events.
