Cranberry & Pistachio Christmas
« on: December 13, 2012, 06:18:58 am »
This slice is a grownup variation on the traditional White Christmas slice, but is much nicer IMO. I cut the recipe out of a magazine last Christmas - I think it was BH&G.
You could probably do the whole recipe in your thermie , but I'm always really careful melting white chocolate as it can burn easily, and prefer doing it in the microwave. Choose whichever method you are most comfortable with.

Ingredients:
350g White Chocolate
90g Cranberries
80g Pistachio's
150g Rice Bubbles

Method:
1. Melt white chocolate (microwave, double boiler or thermie)
2. Place nuts in thermie and chop on speed 5 for 5 seconds. Remove to a large mixing bowl.
3. Place cranberries in thermie and chop on speed 6 for 15 seconds. Add to mixing bowl.
4. Add rice bubbles and melted chocolate to mixing bowl and stir until combined.
5. Spoon mixture into a 20cm square tin, lined with baking paper.
6. Place a sheet of grease proof or baking paper on top and press down firmly. This will prevent the slice from crumbling when you slice it.
7. Refrigerate for an hour, or until set.
8. Slice into squares with a sharp, serrated knife.

I've made this up, but don't want to cut it up yet cos it will start to disappear. It shouldn't perish before Chrissy day if kept in the fridge ?

Only if it gets taste tested too much I would think. ;)

It will be fine CP.
I'm in trouble with my family as I've given away all of the slice I made, and they only got the crumbs. I need to make another one ....

I did. And then I had another bit. (Don't think I will need to worry about its best before date)
