I've just realised that Petal snuck an extra button on three of the ones she made.
You'll need three ingredients:
*Marie biscuits/cookies or other round biscuits (Marie's are an arrowroot biscuit)
*White chocolate buttons
Melt some chocolate buttons in microwave. Spread chocolate on the biscuit leaving the edge chocolate free (if you want). Place a jube in the middle followed by 6 chocolate buttons as petals around the jube. Position buttons on an angle.
Of course there are lots of other things you can use instead of jubes and chocolate buttons. Here are some suggestions:
Middle (instead of jubes)
*dried apricot or date cut in half
Petals (instead of choc buttons)
*dried apricots or dates
*nuts: almonds, walnuts
*apple or pear (quartered and then cut in half again)
If you have other suggestion let us know. We'd love to hear it :)
These were really tasty, even my husband agrees. The taste changes depending on the flavour of the jube. The first one I ate had a blackcurrent jube and it tasted like an Iced Vovo (actually it tasted better) and it was soooo good. Next time (yup, there'll be a next time) i'll try fruit pastels, because I think they'll have more flavour than the cheap jubes I bought.
