INGREDIENTS

180g Mini Marshmallows

1 cup Crushed Peanuts (reserve a tablespoon for decorating)

1 cup Coconut (reserve a tablespoon for decorating)

1/2 cup Jaffas (and 11 additional to decorate)

1/2 cup Chocolate Coated peanuts

750g Dark Chocolate melts

100g White Chocolate melts

Butter – to grease the bundt tin

METHOD

Butter up your bundt tin in preparation for step # 3 – be generous with the butter! The last thing you want is for the wreath to get stuck!

1) In a large bowl, place the marshmallows, peanuts, coconut, jaffas and chocolate coated peanuts. Mix with a wooden spoon.

2) Melt the dark chocolate either over a double boiler or in the microwave (if doing it in the microwave be careful not to burn it!)

3) Wait for melted chocolate to cool slightly and then pour over all other ingredients. Stir together immediately and transfer to a butter lined 24 cm bundt tin.

4) Place in fridge to set for a few hours.

5) Remove from fridge and allow to come to room temp (not melt if it’s hot where you are!) Remove from bundt tin. DON’T FREAK OUT if it doesn’t come straight away, if you have used enough butter it will come!

6) Melt the white chocolate and drizzle over the top of the wreath with backwards and forwards motions to create a rough zig zag (see pics) Sprinkle over additional coconut and crushed peanuts and use white chocolate to ‘glue’ the jaffas around the wreath, evenly spaced.

7) To present, lay on a flat board and place bright red or green ribbon tied in a bow at the top-centre.

MERRY MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS!

What are the red ball things? Are they what u are calling jaffas? Are they a type of candy or biscuit?

8 phoodie { 11.21.14 at 2:02 am }

Yes – the red ball things are Jaffas and they are chocolate balls covered in a crisp red shell. The chocolate is orange flavoured – so if you have an equivalent choc orange ball then thats the perfect thing to use!

9 Sheila Dearing { 11.25.14 at 12:58 am }

Is there something I can use on place of the Jaffa Candy , having a problem finding them

10 phoodie { 11.26.14 at 3:27 am }

Definitely! You can really use any type of candy you like. I enjoy the choc orange combination but really what you are looking for is something round and red, just for the effect! Good luck! :)

How long will it keep for once made? I want to make it for a party on Saturday but hoped to make it one night this week

12 phoodie { 12.08.14 at 9:27 am }

A week, maybe more but always better the fresher it is so make it as close to the date as possible! :)

13 Jessica @ Sweet Menu { 12.10.14 at 3:39 am }

How cute is this! So creative! I could eat the whole thing!

14 Amy { 12.15.14 at 10:12 pm }

2 questions please …
May I substitute peanuts for pecans ? or some other nut
May I substitute chocolate covered peanuts for chocolate covered “something else” – cranberries, raisins, etc.?
Thanks

15 phoodie { 12.15.14 at 11:25 pm }

Absolutely! Sounds delicious – please send me a pic!

16 Ashlea { 12.19.14 at 10:33 pm }

How long would this last in the fridge? Obviously not long because it’s delicious, but if I’m a really good girl and resist the urge to devour, would this last say… 5-6 days? I want to make it for boxing day.

17 Ashlea { 12.19.14 at 10:34 pm }

Never mind my question, I just caught a glimpse of the same question. Sorry!

18 phoodie { 12.21.14 at 1:42 am }

Don’t be sorry! Just saw your question now! :)

19 Aimee { 12.07.16 at 6:19 pm }

I would like to make this but need to make it nut free, could you use malteasters instead of the nuts? Or what else would work? Thanks

20 phoodie { 12.08.16 at 10:47 am }

Absolutely! You can use ANYTHING that you like – just make sure its the same quantity as the nuts that you are replacing.
