It seems there’s no end in sight for my Christmas creations this year….Hot on the trail of the peanut butter cups, I decided I had to have some White Christmas.Well, that’s what we call it here in Australia…not sure if anything like it is made around the world. But you see there’s a problem. I don’t really like the ingredients of the traditional White Christmas. No, I’m not talking about coconut the milk powder, I’m talking about the glace cherries, candied citrus and sultanas.So, I figured out a way to enjoy all my favourite parts of this old fashioned slice, without all the sickly sweet and bitter fruits of ye-olde times. Ladies and Gents, I present, my own incarnation of White Christmas…
