You will need:

  • 200g of good quality dark chocolate
  • 15cl (150g) of single cream
  • 2 teaspoons of honey
  • 25g of butter
  • 80g of cacoa powder (you can use hot chocolate powder but cacao powder works better visually)
  • Reindeer Poop name tags

Dashing through the snow!

Step 1

Step 1

Break the chocolate into squares. Place in a metal bowl over a pot of simmering water and melt it about halfway. (Resist the urge to simply lick the bowl…)

Step 2

Step 2

Add honey and cream to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Take off the heat right away or you might make it “snow” in your kitchen.

Step 3

Step 3

Pour honey and cream mixture over chocolate. Add the butter. Now, whisk it all together until it’s lovely and shiny. You’ve made ganache!

Step 4

Step 4

Cover the ganache with cling film, making sure the film is against the surface. Then put it in the fridge for at least an hour.

Step 5

Step 5

While the mixture cools, fill out those name tags.

Step 6

Step 6

Scoop the ganache out with a spoon. The size of poop is up to you, but smaller ones mean more to share. Roll it into a ball and then cover with the cacao powder.

Step 7

Step 7

Scoop that reindeer poop into a clear bag and add a ribbon and a tag. There you have it – a simple and cheeky homemade gift.
