    Enjoy as is or proceed to decorate, roll in coconut or use in Rocky Road



A few drops of – rose water, orange water, coconut, peppermint or vanilla essence may be added and food safe colours matched. Eg Pink from food dye or beetroot juice with Rosewater.

Setting containers should be lightly oiled with neutral flavoured oil or dusted with corn flour or icing sugar or made of edible casing eg chocolate or rice paper for easy removal of shapes.

To make rounded shapes – Use corn flour or icing sugar and place a dessertspoon in each hole of a small muffin tray. Gently tap tray on bench to settle flour/sugar in tray. Using an egg (wash the shell first or use a cold boiled egg), press and twist the egg down into each pile of flour/sugar to make a vertical half egg shape. Making depressions with the egg horizontal will give you a wider shape that can be decorated into mice or rabbits. Two halves can be joined before decorating to make eggs or balls.

Bury a “surprise” inside small moulds by pouring half the mixture into the mould, place the “surprise” on top of mixture then pour remaining mixture to cover. Eg Pistachio, cranberries, apricots, chocolate, glace cherry, ginger work well.

Decorate with plain/toasted/tinted desiccated coconut, melted white or milk chocolate, “sprinkles” or create artwork with food gels.
