How to make Mini Snowballs..WASH YOUR HANDS

  1. Place the golden syrup, chocolate and butter in a saucepan.
  2. Set over a very heat to melt, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. Do not let it boil.
  3. Place half of the biscuits into a small freezer bag. Secure the top with a tie or tag or tie a knot in the top.
  4. Bash up the biscuits with a rolling pin until they are crumbs  Pour the crumbs into the mixing bowl. Repeat with the other half. Bash up the maltesers in the same way. Add to the mixing bowl.
  5. Add the marshmallowes, cranberries or chopped glace cherries and cake crumbs to the crumbs.
  6. Remove the saucepan from the heat and pour this into the mixing bowl. Mix everything together.
  7. Wait for 10-15 minutes until the mixture has cooled slightly. Sprinkle the desiccated coconut onto a piece of baking parchment then roll the mixture into little balls, about the size of a small bouncy ball, roll in the desiccated coconut and place into a petit four case.
  8. Sprinkle with a little edible glitter and chill.
