This has been my ‘go to’ dessert over the last month, so quick, easy, healthy and delectable!
1 banana (I prefer frozen)
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
1/4 cup cocoa or cacao powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon 100% maple syrup (optional)
Mix in a blender until smooth
Sprinkle with cacao nibs

This year I made my daughter’s class mates chocolate Rudolph spoons as their wee Christmas gift, they were surprisingly easy to make the hardest part was fending the kids off them while they were setting!
RUDOLPH CHOCOLATE SPOONS
Makes about 28-30 spoons
1 Block Whittakers 50% dark chocolate block
Bag of Jaffas
Bag of pretzels
White chocolate or white sugar pearls
Piping bag and no.2 tip (if using white chocolate)
-Cut pretzels in half
-Cut up chocolate into pieces and melt in a double boiler or Tupperware microwave jug in the microwave
-Lay out the pretzels, jaffas and sugar pearls ready to stick on once chocolate is melted
-Spoon chocolate onto spoons with a teaspoon
-Place one jaffa onto chocolate, then pretzels, then add sugar pearls. If using chocolate for the eyes wait until the dark chocolate has set before melting the white chocolate and piping it on
-Once the chocolate has set gently pop them into a cello bag and tie with a twist tie
Doesn’t the twist ties look like a cute little scarf?
I love them on our red chevron wooden spoons too!
Our packaging supplies are one of the biggest sellers at this time of year, it makes me so happy to know people are taking pride and enjoy packaging gifts whether they are homemade or brought.
Sometimes that attention to detail and special touches to packaging gifts just make it that much more special
I have made a selection of goodies to give to family and friends including
Cookies & cream pyramid chocolates using our new chocolate moulds with gold leaf detailing (We also sell a pineapple mould)
Chelsea Winter’s muesli from Everyday Delicious packaged in our kraft window tin tie bags
Salted caramel hot chocolate jars using Maiko Nagao gift tags which you can download for free here pictured with our pretty mirror disco balls and bakers twine

I would love to hear what handmade gifts you love to make
