Last year I did white chocolate and cranberry fudge, truffles and honeycomb for people, wrapped in a cellophane bag - went down really well. We usually do biscuits as well, need to find a recipe for this year - I let the children loose on the icing which they love. We've also made soap this year but not sure how it will turn out just yet!

No probs Belle!
White Festive Fudge:
300g white chocolate
200ml sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
90g dried cranberries, chopped
Line a 15cm square baking tin with greaseproof paper
Put the chocolate, condensed milk and vanilla essence in a saucepan over a medium heat and stir until chocolate is melted.
Add cranberries and mix well.
Pour the mixture into the tin and smooth the top with the back of a metal spoon. Put the tin in the fridge for 3-4 hours.
Turn the fudge out of the tin and peel off the paper. Cut into squares (and try not to eat too much before giving it!)
a little butter
5 tablespoons caster sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
Grease a 18cm square baking tin with butter.
Put the sugar and syrup in a saucepan over a medium heat. Bring the mixture to the boil then let it simmer for 3-4 minutes until it turns golden brown.
Take the pan off the heat, add the bicarb and mix it in with a wooden spoon. When the mixture froths up, pour it into the baking tin right away.
When the mixture has cooled, turn it out onto a chopping board and use the wooden spoon to crack it into bite size pieces. You can dip it into melted chocolate if you wish to decorate.
Just remember not to put it anywhere warm once cracked as mine kept melting again last year! I ended up keeping it in the fridge.
