Once upon a time. This
Christmas, build a house that
will make dreams come true.

Chocolate Fairy Tale Cottage

What you need

  • Approx. 1.45kg milk, white or dark chocolate – we used a mix
  • Sweeties, icing sugar and desiccated coconut, to decorate
  • A sprinkling of imagination!

What you do

  1. Break the chocolate into a heatproof bowl (reserve a few squares) and melt over a pan of simmering water (do not let the base of the bowl touch the water).
  2. Using a tablespoon, fill the moulds with chocolate. Leave to cool for 1 hour then chill until completely set.
  3. Melt the reserved squares of chocolate. Dip the tip of a bamboo skewer into the chocolate and paint it along the edges of the chocolate panels to 'cement' the house together, starting with the walls and ending with the roof.
  4. Decorate your house however you like! We made icicles from icing sugar and snow from desiccated coconut... the only limit is your imagination!
