  • 24-30 Christmas chocolates (Heroes, Celebrations, Roses, Quality Street etc.) unwrapped


  • Preheat the oven to 180C and grease a mini cupcake pan; set aside.
  • Place the unwrapped Christmas chocolates into the freezer until you’re ready to use them; this helps make sure they don’t melt straight away!

  • In a large bowl, mix the butter and the sugars together until light, fluffy and smooth; 2-3 minutes with an electric or stand mixer.
  • Add the egg and mix again until fully incorporated. Add the vanilla extract and mix until combined. 
  • Gradually add the flour mixture until just incorporated.
  • Roll the dough into balls (tbsp. of dough per ball) and place into the mini cupcake pan. 
  • Place into the oven for 10-11 minutes until the edges are just golden brown but the center is still soft. 
  • Remove from the oven and immediately push a frozen Christmas chocolate into the centre of each biscuit cup. 
  • Place them into the refrigerator to cool before removing from the cupcake tray. 
  • Once removed, dust with icing sugar and enjoy!
