If you are on the hunt for a quick and delicious home-made gift, look no further. This white chocolate bark is so easy to make, and the bright colours just scream "festive", making it perfect for this time of year. In order to get beautifully glossy chocolate that will break with a sharp snap, you need to temper it. But don't let that word scare you! It's easy to do. The reason we temper chocolate is to encourage the cocoa butter in the chocolate to harden into a specific crystalline pattern, which maintains the gloss and texture for a long time.

A fabulous and unique festive gift, these delicate snowflake marshmallows make for a nice change from the usual Christmas gifts of cookies or fudge! As an added bonus, they are gluten-free.

Everybody loves little food. It's a thing. Make a miniature version of something and it's instantly a hit. Why? Maybe it's the cute factor. Or maybe because there is less guilt associated with eating it. Or is it because people love trying lots of different things? Why commit to 1 slice of cheesecake when you can nibble on a whole variety of goodies instead! I made these little cheesecakes for a picnic and they worked perfectly. Having bite-size version's means no need to slice and serve.  No mess, no fuss! They are also fab if you are serving up a variety of...
