How to Make :-

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350 F/Gas Mark 4Instructions

  • Step 1
    In a bowl beat together the brown sugar and
    butter until creamy. Mix in the egg.


  • Step 2
    Add in the flour, mixed spice and cinnamon
    and stir until it comes together into a ball of
    dough. Wrap the ball in cling film and place in
    the fridge for 30 mins.
  • Step 3
    During this time crush the boiled sweets in
    their wrappers into small pieces using a rolling
    pin or meat mallet. Unwrap the plastic
    sweet wrappers and place in bowls, keeping
    the colours separate.
  • Step 4
    Remove the dough from the fridge. Roll it out
    a handful at a time so it is 1cm thick, making
    sure the surface is well floured as the dough
    is soft. Cut out the shapes. Then using a
    smaller cutter make a cut out in the centre of
    the biscuit.
  • Step 5
    Place on a baking tray lined with greaseproof
    or a silicone baking sheet. Make a small
    ribbon hole at the top of each biscuit using a straw.
    Fill the centre cut out of each biscuit
    with some of the crushed sweets.
    Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes.
  • Step 6
    Remove from the oven and leave on the tray
    for the sweets to slightly harden. Then gently
    transfer onto a wire rack to completely cool.
  • Step 7
    Once they are cool decorate using icing
    pens, silver balls and ribbon. Place on the
    tree or give as gifts!
