Ingredients

  • 200 g white chocolate

  • Sprinkles

  • 12 small individual disposable aluminium pie trays

Method

  • Step 1

    Prepare your disc moulds by lining up your pie trays and sprinkling a single layer of sprinkles into each one.

  • Step 2

    Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler. Choose a pan and a bowl that work together well. The bowl must be able to sit on top of the pan without falling off and without touching the bottom of the pan. Once you’ve chosen your pan and bowl, fill the pan 1/3 full with water and place the bowl on top. (You need to make sure the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl.)

  • Step 3

    Put the pan with water onto boil. Break up the white chocolate into little pieces and place in the bowl. Place the bowl on top of the pan and allow the chocolate to melt.

  • Step 4

    Once the chocolate has melted, turn off heat. Carefully take the bowl off the top of the pan. (The pan has boiling water in it, and the steam will hit you when you remove the bowl! You should either get help for this or ensure you are wearing oven mitts to protect your hands and arms.)

  • Step 5

    Spoon 4 tbsp of white chocolate into each pie tray. Using the edge of the tray, lift it up and gently tap it a few times on your counter.

  • Step 6

    Sprinkle a layer of sprinkles over the top of the chocolate and leave to set.

  • Step 7

    Turn discs out of pie trays and enjoy. You can wrap these up in cellophane and give them to your friends and family for Christmas! You also can use lollipop sticks and make them into chocolate lollipops. You would need to very carefully stick the lolly stick into the chocolate when you have just poured it into the pie trays and then mould the edge of the pie tray round the stick. You also can paint the discs using the cookie paint recipe or use other decorations (M&M’s spring to mind!).
