White Christmas Recipe

With Christmas fast approaching, now is the time to get cracking on your Christmas baking. The great thing about White Christmas slice is that you don’t have to bake. This version of the recipe does not include copha, rather you use white chocolate melts. It makes a lovely and thoughtful Christmas gift to share with friends.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas to you and your family.

White Christmas Slice
  • 500g white chocolate melts
  • 1 1/2 cups rice bubbles/rice krispies
  • 100g red glace cherries halved
  • 160g almonds, roasted, halved
  • 160g sultanas
  • 1 cup (90g) desiccated coconut
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract



Line a 30cm x 20cm (base) baking pan with baking paper. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (don’t let the bowl touch the water). Mix in the rest of the ingredients. Pour mixture into the prepared pan, pressing down with a large metal spoon.

Refrigerate for 4 hours or until set.

Once set, turn the slice onto a chopping board. Using a knife that has been dipped in hot water, cut into squares. Serve.

This makes a really nice Christmas gift for friends if you put the squares into Christmas cellophane and wrap it with a ribbon.

  3. Lesley Walsh It looks lovely. I’m in the UK so can I ask what white chocolate melts are? Can you use any type of white chocolate?

      Sasha Cottman You could use any sort of good cooking chocolate. If you have a look in the baking aisle you should be able to find these little chocolate cooking buds. Just don't eat them all before you bake like I often do. I would think Tesco should have them.

  9. Suzannah O my that recipe looks divine. What are Rice Bubbles? We don't have anything that sounds like that in California or at least I haven't heard of them

      Sasha Cottman Hi Suzannah, Rice Bubbles are Rice Krispies. Both made by Kelloggs but some reason given a different name in different places.
