If you're still up for some Christmas baking, here's a recipe you can easily make out of regular cupboard ingredients - which is exactly why I made them. I was stuck at home the other day when one of my offsprings decided to throw a runny nose and run a bit of a fever, and all the Christmas baking I had planned involved a trip to the shops! You can use any nuts you like, mine happened to be walnuts and toasted, unsalted peanuts. (Thermomix instructions are included in the recipe)
I instantly fell in love with them, they have everything that makes a great Christmas cookie, a bit of chocolate, a bit of nuts and a great look! They're soft at the start and after a few days turn slightly chewy, which I think is my preferred way of eating them. With a glass of mulled wine in front of the fireplace, nothing is better to see out a fun-filled Christmas day!
