1. Candy canes

Unwrap those spare candy canes and get swirling to make these dandy peppermint marshmallow. Crush them and fold them through your marshmallow for an excellent hot chocolate topping or roasting treat. 

2. Panettone

Italian brioche at it's best, panettone doesn't just have to be enjoyed on it's own. By using some cointreau, orange and dark chocolate, you can take this cake to a creamy place in no time at all.

3. The roast

Turkey, pork, beef whichever roasting choice you had this festive season, you don't have to fret about making sandwiches with it for the next month. This Mexican breakfast staple uses tortillas and a spicy tomato salsa. 

4. Chocolate

With only 3 simple ingredients, these milky pops work with any or all of your chocolate stash and are an easy frozen summer treat for anyone and everyone.
