White Christmas Slice

| |

White Christmas slice is a staple in our family festivities. A medley of pistachios, glace fruit, cranberries, coconut, and rice bubbles encased in a white chocolate slab of goodness! An essential part of the holidays, It’s quite quick to whip up, has no baking involved, and is a great recipe to get the kids in the kitchen this time of year. It’s also a total winner as a homemade gift!

The secret to a good white Christmas recipe is using really good ingredients. Especially the chocolate. My favourite white chocolate is Lindt. Its flavour and creaminess by far make it my favourite, plus it’s super easy to melt in the microwave!

What you need to make this easy White Christmas

  • Pantry staples – rice bubbles, shredded coconut

  • Preserved fruit – glace pineapple, glace cherries, dried cranberries

  • Pistachios – if you can get your hands on slithered pistachios, their vibrant green colour just makes this slice pop! However, this doesn’t change the flavours and you can use slithered or roughly chopped pistachios and still get the same result.

  • White chocolate – I use Lindt white chocolate.

Equipment

Aside from a big mixing bowl and wooden spoon, you will need a slice tray to form the slice into. For this White Christmas recipe, I used my biscotti pan lined with baking paper. (Its dimensions are 30.5 x 14 x 5.1cm)

The details

  1. Line a slice pan with baking paper, ensuring the paper goes well above the top of all the sides. Give it a light coating of baking spray. Set aside.
  2. Roughly chop up all the fruit and nuts. Pop them into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add the rice bubbles and mix thoroughly.
  4. In a separate bowl, melt your white chocolate either over a pot of simmering water or in the microwave. When completely melted, pour over the rice bubble mixture and give it all a really good stir to completely coat the fruit, nuts and rice bubbles.
  5. Spread the mixture into the prepared pan and lightly press all over to get into all the corners and even out the top. Pop in the fridge for 2 hours.
  6. Slice and eat!

A little word on melting chocolate

While I always recommend tempering your chocolate, this easy recipe doesn’t require you to (yay!) Just pop it into a heat-proof bowl and nuke it in the microwave in 20 second increments (stirring in between) until your chocolate is glossy and fully melted.

  1. Love this recipe. I used dried apricots instead of cranberries (that’s what was in my pantry) and worked out really well. A great recipe to make for Christmas gifts.

    1. Thanks Sally. My sister swears by glace apricots in her white Christmas! I would have included them but I have struggled to find them this year. I’ll have to try some dried ones instead x
