I love the flavour of White Christmas but I'm not a massive fan of the glaced fruit, nuts etc (i.e the traditional WC).  So basically I love the actual white bit.

Does anyone have an alternate WC recipe?

Could you just try melted white chocolate, rice bubbles, coconut and a little vanilla.

That will give you some texture and the sweetness without the fruit.

Just make it as is minus the fruits and nuts. It will still work original.gif

I realise it will still probably work however I'm wanting some ideas to replace the fruits, nuts etc.

Ooh, I misunderstood blush.gif I thought you were wanting to know of a recipe with those eliminated.

Alternatives hmmm, choc chips and red raspberries (the lollies)?

I've used marshmallows, dried apricots  and slivered almonds before- that was pretty tasty!

I have made it using mini m&m's.

Was intended for children but was also enjoyed by grownups!

I use mini marshmallows, mini coloured choc bits, almond slivers & chopped up red & green snakes.

Comes out more like white chocolate rocky road, but is delicious with coconut, red raspberry lollies and marshmallows. Just make sure to add a generous pinch of salt which really brings out all the flavours.

Pistachios, white choc chips, and dried cranberries.  Now I want some.

When I make rocky road I use snakes/jelly babies instead of the turkish delight etc

The Christmas edition of the Coles in store magazine has a recipe with dried apricots, mango and almonds.

500g white chocolate melts
1/2 cup thickened cream
1cup rice bubbles
1/2 cup blanched almonds, roasted & chopped
1/2 cup dried apricots
1/2 cup finely chopped dried mango
1 cup shredded coconut

Method
Line a slice pan with baking paper. Place chocolate and cream in a heatproof bowl and melt over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir until smooth
Meanwhile place remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Pour over chocolate mixture and mix well. Pour into slice pan and smooth surface. Cover and refrigerate until set. Slice into 20 fingers or whatever size you want.

It's not the traditional one but it sounds yummy and might be worth a try.
