Hey guys – it’s Friday! Not only that, but it’s Friday the 13th! I’m not bothered about the supposed scary implications of Friday 13th – when you’re as clumsy as me, every day is full of bad luck. I’m more concerned about how 12 days of December have already flown by and I’ve done nothing Christmassy!

Well, apart from gift shopping, gift wrapping, putting up the decorations, Christmas baking and listening to Christmas music, but I want moooore! Where we live, we only get snow on the very tip of the volcano and as soon as there is the tiniest hint of a snowflake, the local police immediately shut down all the roads leading up there. A bit much? Not when you find out that the locals over here have a tradition of building snowmen on the bonnet of the car and racing down to the beach as fast as they can before the snowman has melted. We need to keep these people off the roads!

So, we aren’t allowed to play in the only snow we ever get because people are crazy. What’s almost as good as snow? Christmas lights! But, thanks to the recession which seems to be killing off every teeny tiny bit of festive joy around here, the lights which decorate the streets…well, let’s just say they leave a little to be desired. So we have no snow, no lights – now what?

Christmas markets! We do have Christmas markets! Last year we went to London’s Winter Wonderland which was absolutely amazing. In addition to all the attractions, they also had a huge (and I mean HUGE) Christmas market full of wonderful things like wild boar burgers with stuffing, giant pieces of homemade fudge and some of the cutest tree decorations I’d ever seen. I’ve never actually been to a Christmas market where I live, but the people around here are pretty big on artisan stuff so I’ve got my fingers crossed! If I can’t find anything worth buying, at least I’ll come back with a chocolate churro, right?

Enough of my rambling – what’s Christmas like over your way? What Christmassy stuff have you been doing over the past two weeks?

White Chocolate-Glazed Peppermint Oreo Snowman Truffles

Yield: makes around 10-12 small servings

Ingredients

  • 16 Oreos
  • 5 tablespoons cream cheese (low- or full-fat works fine!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 2 tablespoons white chocolate chips
  • 1-2 teaspoons vegetable oil

Instructions

  1. Using a food processor or plastic bag and rolling pin, crush the Oreos until you have fine crumbs.
  2. Place them into a bowl with the cream cheese and mix until combined.
  3. Pour in the peppermint extract and continue mixing. Taste and add more peppermint if needed.
  4. Scoop the Oreo mixture into a cute snowman mould and leave to set in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  5. When the snowmen are set, melt the white chocolate with the vegetable oil in the microwave - don't forget to stir regularly to avoid the mixture burning!
  6. Scoop the chocolate into a piping bag and drizzle it over the snowmen.
  7. Return to the fridge for around 30 minutes to fully set before serving.
