This recipe was adapted from Woolworths Fresh Magazine at my local Safeway supermarket. Simple, beautiful, tasty and enjoyed by my colleagues at our end of year xmas break. I used dark and white chocolates. They also make cute christmas gifts.

Melt chocolate, cream and butter in heatproof bowl over a pot of boiling water until smooth. (In the original recipe, it instructs you to melt the chocolate cream and butter in a bowl in the microwave for 1 1/2 mins, stirring every 30 seconds)

Ad Rice bubbles, coconut & cherries and stir until well combined. chill until firm.

Divide mixture into 2 parts and roll into logs by place chocolate on a sheet of baking paper. Cut into 1cm- thick slices. You can roll some of them into balls to create different shapes.

Coat with coconut/icing sugar or coco powder
