• 100g white chocolate, broken into small pieces
  • 80g pretzels
  • 1 tbsp red, white and green sprinkles, or a festive mix
  • 50g red and green sugar-coated chocolates
  • 80g salted peanuts
  • 50g mini marshmallows (ensure vegetarian, if needed)
  • 100g dried cranberries


  • STEP 1

    Melt the chocolate in a small heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water, ensuring the bowl doesn’t touch the water, or in the microwave in 20-second bursts. Spoon blobs the size of a £1 coin onto a tray lined with baking parchment, then press a pretzel into the middle of each. Scatter with the sprinkles and leave to set for 2-3 hrs or overnight.

  • STEP 2

    Tip into a large bowl along with the sugar-coated chocolates, peanuts, marshmallows and cranberries. Stir to combine. Will keep in a sealed container for up to a week. Leave the cereal out for elves or Santa’s reindeer, or pack into bags and seal with pretty ribbon to give as gifts. Or, enjoy as a snack while watching a Christmas film.
