White Christmas slice is a retro Christmas treat with crunchy rice bubbles and dried fruit that is still popular today.

I will be giving you the conventional recipe method and the Thermomix method because the slice is easy to make regardless of which method you choose to use.

Confession time, the traditional white Christmas recipe doesn’t use white chocolate. It’s crazy but true, the slice was held together using copha, milk powder, and icing sugar. I have pimped the recipe because as a child I didn’t like the taste of the milk powder. So this recipe uses Cadbury White Chocolate as the binding agent for the slice.

This recipe is perfect for gifting and can be packaged up in cute bars. It would also be a fabulous addition to a gift hamper. Just add a few more homemade treats such as Rum Balls, Gingerbread Men, and Reindeer Salted Caramel fudge.

Why you should make White Christmas

  • It’s super quick! Just 10 minutes and you have a Christmas treat.
  • This is a retro favourite, you owe it to your kids to continue the tradition.
  • It makes a great gift from the kitchen.
  • Just 5 ingredients so there is hardly any shopping to do!
  • It can be made ahead of time and stored indefinitely in the fridge!

Gifting Your White Christmas

In the picture below you can see how I have packaged the white Christmas slice ready for gifting.

  • Firstly I removed the slice from the baking tray and cut the white Christmas across the width of the slice to give 6 bars.
  • I was able to find a pack of plastic cellophane bags in the craft section of a discount store. I place the White Christmas bar in the bag.
  • I sealed the bag with a length of red and white twine.
  • Then added a ribbon which I tied in a bow.
  • Finally, I added a gift tag. I used the twine to tie the gift tag to the bar.

If this was to be a part of a larger hamper there is no need to add a gift tag to the slice.

Christmas Food Gifts

If you like giving gifts from the kitchen to your foodie friends I have more recipes to help you fill that hamper. Hampers big and small are great for neighbours, teachers, bus drivers, and even older relatives that are difficult to buy for. Everyone is thrilled to get a gift that is homemade and delicious! Take a look at my Roundup of Christmas Hamper Ideas if you plan to make some Christmas treats this year.

Frequently asked questions

Which white chocolate is best?

I prefer to use quality chocolate like Cadbury or Nestle chocolate, I would avoid cheap cooking chocolate as the chocolate is the main ingredient.

Why did my white chocolate seize?

White chocolate will seize if it is overheated or if water comes in contact with the chocolate. Heat the chocolate slowly to avoid this problem.

Can I make this Gluten Free?

Yes, to make this gluten-free use GF Rice Bubbles and Cadbury White chocolate. The rest of the ingredients are already GF so they will be safe.

Can I omit the nuts?

Yes, the nuts can be omitted. To keep the red and green theme you could add green glace cherries or even green M&M’s.

How should I cut the slice?

The slice is easiest to cut straight from the fridge. I use a large, heavy kitchen knife to cut it. You can rinse the knife in hot water between each cut to get a nice sharp edge.
