“These are popular fare on our christmas table but are great at any time of year! Feel free to add or change flavourings as desired - these delicious little morsels are so customisable! i use Arnott's Nice biscuits with sultanas. Try mixing crushed chocolate biscuits around a whole hazelnut for a delicious change.”
