Oaty-chrissy treats December 10, 2009

Filed under: christmas,recipe — craftymim @ 10:00 pm

One of my fave danish christmas treats are oat-balls ‘havregrynskugler‘. A variation on a rum ball I suppose.

You’ll need

100g of soft butter

300ml quick cooking oats

150ml icing sugar

100ml cocoa

100ml dessicated coconut

1 teaspoon strong coffee

a dash of vanilla

Mix all ingredients, roll into small balls and roll in more coconut.

Store in the fridge.

We love these so much I have just made batch number 4 already.


Crafty Tuesday – cheats gifttags December 2, 2009

Filed under: christmas,craft — craftymim @ 9:34 pm

Inspired by Diane I have been VERY crafty today 😉 It is almost cheating calling it a craft – but what the heck, I’m taking the chance.

I alway tear of the front of last years christmas cards before depositing the backs in the recycling. In years past, we have pasted chrissy images onto red cardboard for new christmas cards, but this year I dont think my mental health lends itself to card-stress, so this years project is even easier – gifttags.

Doesn’t get much easier than that!

Merry 2nd December.
