Directions:

Chocolate Snowman

Create a snowman by pouring tempered white chocolate over 2 balloons. Once it sets, pop the balloon and stack the 2 pieces with each other, filling it with white chocolate cream inside. Decorate buttons and eyes using M&Ms, put a fondant carrot on the nose, and wrap a sour candy strip around the neck to become a scarf. Spread tempered chocolate on a flat surface, top with parchment paper, and layer with another chocolate. Use a jar to roll the chocolate and let it sit, pour another tempered chocolate onto a parchment paper, make sure it’s round, attach the pieces to become a hat, put in the top of the snowman’s head, and fill it with chocolate ganache.

Mini Pancakes

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, eggs, sugar, vanilla sugar, baking powder, and milk, beat it until smooth and frothy. Fry small portions on a pan to make mini pancakes. Sprinkle it with icing sugar and serve with chocolate ganache dip.

Spiral Dough

Combine and beat, eggs, sugar, milk, dry yeast, and vanilla extract. Let the dough rise, then flatten with a rolling pin, and cut it into strips. Cover the rolling pin with aluminum foil, brush with melted butter, and start rolling the strips around the aluminum foil. Brush it with melted butter before baking in a preheated 400°F oven for 20 minutes.

Christmas Bark in Milk Carton

Cut a clean milk carton in half, submerge a pack of chocolate bars in hot water to melt it, open the pack and pour onto the milk carton, do this with white and milk chocolate too. Decorate the chocolate bark with 2 halves of pretzel (deer’s antlers), red m&m (nose), white and milk chocolate drops for the eyes. Decorate the white chocolate bark with 2 halves of Raffaello (head and body of snowman), Reese’s (hat), pocky sticks (arm), melted chocolate (eyes), red sprinkle (nose), and coconut flakes for snow effect. Lastly, decorate the milk chocolate bark with strawberry marshmallows (hat), candy eyeballs, red candy (nose), mini marshmallows, and sprinkles. Let it cool and remove the carton, then serve.

Chocolate Ball Ornament

Separate tempered white chocolate in 3 bowls, mix with red, white, and green food coloring. Pour 2 of each color in a round silicone mold. In a mixing bowl, mix white chocolate, heavy cream, and whipped cream, then transfer in 3 separate bowls. Mix each bowl with semi-sweet chocolate, cherry jam, and pistachio cream. Use this to fill the chocolate molds, once filled, close it using the other half of the mold. Use the peanut butter cup inserted with a string as a bead cap of the ornament, design the ball with edible glitters.

Christmas Tree Cake

Separate 5 egg yolks and egg whites, make meringue on the egg whites, then mix the yolk with sugar, vanilla extract, baking powder, cooking oil, flour, and water. Once the batter is ready, pour the meringue onto it and fold gently. Pour half of the cake batter into another bowl, add red and green food coloring to the cake batter. Pour it on a cake pan alternately, then bake it at 360°F for 60 minutes. Layer the cake, then spread a cream cheese and marzipan mixture onto it, repeat another layer. Melt white chocolate, add green food coloring, then transfer onto a piping bag. Place a pocky stick then start drizzling sideways back and forth to make a mini Christmas tree. Cover the cake with tempered white chocolate, insert the mini Christmas trees, and sprinkle with lots of icing sugar.
