So Christmas is right around the corner, and I’m kinda not a Christmas person, before we had our son I was strictly a tree goes up a few days before Christmas and if I had my way it would come down as part of my Christmas day tradition. I’m a tad more lenient now because I loved the Christmas tree when I was younger, the memories of putting our tree together as a family, sitting on my Dads shoulders to put the star on, that tingle of excitement just when the lights have been plugged in and sitting down looking at the lights as though we had just completed the most important task of the year.
The past 7 years Ive been working on putting aside my Grinch tendencies in lieu of sharing those same memories with my son that I experienced.
All that said I have a few exceptions to Grinch status, specifically White Christmas and Malteaser reindeers. Chocolate mousse snowman have also been added to the list this year.
This year I chose to make it without copha as while I’m not particularly bothered by it as its not something we have often, I know not everyone feels the same, so I’ve stuffed all the goodness and flavour of White Christmas without compromising on ingredients. We also added some dark chocolate on top to tone done the sweetness.
