    Demelza's Note:

    I found this recipe in a Canadian Living Christmas magazine a number of years ago & have been making it ever since. The recipe calls for chopped dried cranberries, don't just stick to the original cranberry flavor, try cherry, pomegranate or whatever one you like. I usually just make my own chocolate wafer crumbs, they are not quite as sweet as the bought crumbs. You could make it gluten free by using a gluten free chocolate wafer. I know it uses corn syrup, which is on a lot of hit lists, but I have not found a suitable substitute for it. It is quick & easy to make & will freeze well. The silver dragees are not really necessary, but the little silver balls add to the presentation. It looks very festive on a Christmas baking tray. I hope you enjoy it!
