It’s been a while since Chibi has had her last foodie adventure! I haven’t been very inspired for the last 3 months, but thanks to Christmas being just around the corner, I’ve gone all excited about it again :) Time to cook up something for the festive season! :D In this episode, we’re gonna have a look at how Chibi tackled these super cute ‘Butternut Snap Rudolph Chocolate Tartlets’~
(P.S I did not make up this recipe ;D I followed one, haha)
I woke up nice and early on Sunday 9th and had a stroll to Woolies to buy my ingredients and baking tin. I’ve always wanted to make little sweets like this, and I can’t wait to use the decorating icing kit! It’s like art and crafty but on food! ^_^
Arnott’s Butternut Snap Cookies ready to go into a preheated oven for a little baking
Gently molding the shape for the tartlet base. This was a little tricky as it was quite fragile and it was hard keeping the biscuit from moving. (Note to self: It’s easier when it’s nice and soft, so bake it a tiny little bit longer but don’t burn the bottom)
Allowing to cool…
Melting and mixing the chocolate, butter and cream~ then placed in the fridge to cool
Filled the biscuit cases with chocolate. There was a bit too much chocolate left over so I was tempted to put more into each case, which made some spill over..
Sorted through a packet of mini Pretzels to find all the star shaped ones to use!
Sliced marshmallow into halves and gently pressed them onto each one
Using ready-made frosting, I attached a jaffa to form the nose! :o) The frosting was fun to use!! I’m starting to get the hang of it…
Time for the eyes! I picked out the white mini marshmallow and sliced them in half ~ using writing icing to give them some personality ;D
Don’t they look dotty and adoraaablle??
Finally, I attached the mini star pretzels to create the antlers and it’s finished!! Just for the fun of it, I gave a few of the reindeer all sorts of other antlers.. XD
This was a lot of fun to make ~ I feel like a kid again :D I spent the whole day feeling giggly and excited because these just look so adorable. It tastes great too!
Also made another batch and brought it to Jacky’s Christmas Party :) The photos above were taken during the first and second lot I made.Comment it , or trackback this post.
