So here, in all it’s traditional glory is the recipe for white Christmas.
White Christmas with Chocolate, Craisins and Pistachios
Not straying too far from the traditional recipe, here dried fruit mix has been swapped out for craisins and pistachios. It’s still got that Christmassy vibe with pops of red and green mixed in with the white. Once the slice has chilled, the cut white Christmas bars are dipped into melted chocolate for a grown-up chocolatey twist.
