Frosty the Snowman ! White Chocolate and Cranberry Christmas Treat



Keep your kids occupied over this fun holiday season with these adorable Christmas treats ! It will bring smiles and to sure to elicit oohs, ahhs and plenty of giggles. I don't know any kid that wouldn't be thrilled to make these cute Frosty the Snowman. My daughter prepared them last Christmas for herself and her brother and friends to enjoy the festive season.

Hope it's a white Christmas, but meanwhile I am sure this will do :)







You will need:

120g white chocolate plus 100 g for coating
25 g unsalted butter
50 ml double cream
100g semolina
50g sugar
150ml water
50g castor sugar
50g dried cranberries
4tbsp. desiccated coconut plus 100g for coating
To decorate:
cardamom seeds (eyes)
goji berries (nose)
jelly sweets (hats and scarves)

Method:
  1. Melt the white chocolate (120g), butter and cream over a bain marie. Allow to cool completely.
  2. Meanwhile, gently roast the semolina in a non stick pan for about 5 minutes. Add the sugar and water so that the semolina soaks up all of the water. Allow to cool.
  3. In a bowl, mix the chocolate sauce, semolina, cranberries and the 4tbsp of coconut together. Place in the fridge to chill.
  4. Melt 100 g white chocolate.
  5. Shape the chilled semolina mixture into 3 large balls for the snowman body and 3 small balls for the heads.
  6. Coat these balls individually in the white chocolate and then place into the remaining desiccated coconut.
  7. Assemble the snowmen. You can use a little bit of melted chocolate to stick the head to the body.
  8. Decorate the snowmen.
  9. Chill until serving. 
  10. Enjoy !
Notes :-

Instead of cranberries, you can use any dried fruit.
For nose instead of Goji berries use carrot.
