Delicious recipes to make for Christmas Day! They're yummy and relatively simple to make! Instead of bringing something traditional a long to your families festive celebrations - why not go or something like this to impress and show off those baking skills of yours!
No bake chocolate oreo tart
Preparation Time: 20 min (plus two hours in the fridge to set)
Oreo crust:7 oz dark chocolate
1/4 cup butter
Chocolate Cream filling:
300 g (10 oz) Oreo cookies 1/2 cup butter
about 4 or 5 chopped Oreo cookies chocolate chips
- To make the crust, using a food processor, blend Oreo cookies until the texture of coarse meal or crumbs. Add the melted butter and blend until well combine. Place the mixture into a 4×14 fluted rectangular tart pan (mine has a removable bottom for easy removal of the finished tart) and press onto the bottom and up the sides evenly. Freeze the crust whilst preparing the chocolate filling
- In a medium saucepan, bring cream to the boil. Remove from heat, add chopped chocolate and butter, and let rest for 5 minutes. Then stir until dissolved. Pour chocolate filling over oreo crust, and decorate with some chopped oreo cookies and chocolate chips
- Chill for 2 hours at least, preferably overnight. Unmold, serve, and enjoy!
Caramel Stuffed Soft Gingerbread Cookies
Thick soft and chewy Cookies with a good Ginger Bite filled with sweet, gooey Caramel!
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened (2 sticks)
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/4 cup molasses
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon ground cloves
- 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 24 Kraft Caramels
- In the bowl of your stand mixer, cream together the softened butter and sugar for three minutes
- Add in the molasses and mix completely
- Crack in the eggs, one at a time, being sure to scrape down the sides as you go.
- Mix in the vanilla, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves until thoroughly mixed. Scrape down the bottom and sides of the bowl.
- Add the flour, sprinkle the baking soda and salt on the flour, and mix until just combined.
- Cover and chill in the fridge 30-40 minutes.
- While your dough is chilling, unwrap all of the caramels
- Preheat your oven to 350°F and line three baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Taking about 1/2-1 Tablespoon of dough, roll into a ball. Do the same with a second piece of dough.
- Stack the dough on each side of the caramels, firmly squeeze together so it's pinched at the sides (as in the photo in the post above), and then roll into a ball.
- Place on a baking sheet two inches apart. (I fit eight per baking sheet)
- Bake for 9-10 minutes, until flattened, but puffy, and cooked through.
- Allow to cool completely on the baking sheet before removing, because if you do it sooner, the caramels could melt through the bottom on the cooling racks.
