    One favourite is “White Christmas”, a sweet which is usually only made at this time of the year. There are many recipes for it, and they're all basically simple, so you can vary them to suit your own tastes.

    For instance, this recipe, by Cassandra on the Allrecipes site, includes a cup of rice bubbles, but you can substitute any dry cereal like corn flakes.

    Also, dried fruit can be replaced by berries. Whatever you use, the dried fruit should be chopped into small pieces, about the size of currants or raisins. Traditional White Christmas always includes glace cherries.

    Copha is a type of vegetable cooking fat made from coconut oil.

    Preparation and cooking time are less than an hour, but it has to be put in the fridge for a couple of hours to chill.

    The ingredients listed here will make 24 slices.
