Back in Australia, we don’t get to have a white Christmas like out northern cousins do, so I have to get a little creative. Today, I want to share this recipe with you all Australian mommies that want to bring that white Christmas spirit in your homes and serve this delicious treat for your families.
I reserve a little bit of the melted white chocolate to pour on top of the cookies but feel free if you want to add something of your own too. Coat in melted chocolate and when you bite into it, you’ll get this amazing taste, or maybe want to add candied fruits to sprinkle on top, no problem. Be a little creative and incorporate something that your family likes on every serving.
Ingredients for Australian White Christmas
1-pound white chocolate
1 cup dry coconut (desiccated)

1/2 cup cashew
1/2 cup macadamia nuts

How to Make Australian White Christmas
Prepare a baking tin and line with parchment paper. In a large bowl, melt your white chocolate. Add the rest of the ingredients to the melted chocolate bowl and mix to combine. Pour the white chocolate mixture into the baking tin and spread to even/level it. Put in the refrigerator for about 15-20 minutes to let it set. Once out of the refrigerator, the mixture should be firm. Take it out from the baking tin and using a sharp knife, cut into blocks. Serve and enjoy.
