Dark Chocolate – Makes 6 wreaths

  • 150g dark chocolate (70%)
  • 30g butter
  • 30g golden syrup
  • 90g Cornflakes
  • 20g pecans, cut in half
  • 40g malted milk chocolate balls
  • Dr. Oetker Reindeer Cheer Sprinkles

White Chocolate – Makes 6 wreaths

  • 150g white chocolate
  • 30g butter
  • 30g golden syrup
  • 90g Cornflakes
  • 30g pistachios
  • 20g dried cranberries
  • Dr. Oetker Snowy Christmas Sprinkles

Method

  • Set up a bain-marie by filling a saucepan with a small amount of water and bring to a low-medium heat. Place a glass or metal bowl over the top of the saucepan and add the chocolate, butter and golden syrup. Slowly melt until they are combined. If the white chocolate seizes up while melting, you can get a 1/4 tsp of warm milk and whisk with a hand mixer until it becomes smooth again. Don’t add too much milk as the wreaths will not set.
  • Pour the chocolate over the Cornflakes and mix well to fully cover them. Mix the pecans, malted milk chocolate balls, pistachios and dried cranberries through the Cornflakes.
  • Line a tray with parchment paper and split the mixture into 6 mounds evenly spread out on the paper. Use a teaspoon to create a hole in the centre of the wreath and gently press the sides together to ensure that it will be stuck together when set.
  • Sprinkle with either Dr. Oetker Reindeer Cheer Sprinkles or Dr. Oetker Snowy Christmas Sprinkles to decorate.
  • Place the tray in the fridge to set for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
