Festive Sweets

Making your own sweets can be lots of fun - children have a great time with this too! They are also nice gifts if placed in a pretty box or packet.


  • Vegan chocolate - I recommend Maya Gold for these - it's orange spiciness is perfect for this time of year.
  • Nuts of your choice (hazel, walnut, pecan, almond, brazil)
  • Vegan marzipan (many supermarkets stock this)
  • Dates
  • Desiccated coconut
  • Cocoa
  • Icing sugar
  • Crystalised angelica (or green glace cherries)
  • Glace cherries
  • Flaked almonds


  1. It's very simple! Melt the chocolate and then dip things in it - nuts, marzipan balls, dates - and then place them on a sheet of grease-proof paper to set.
  2. Decorate with angelica, glace cherries (can be made to look like holly) and flaked almonds before the chocolate sets and then you can sprinkle with cocoa, coconut or icing sugar.
  3. Dates can be de-stoned and stuffed with marzipan for a non-chocolate treat.
  4. Place in petit four cases and enjoy!
