Servings: 16 serves
Calories: 421kcal

Ingredients

  • 1200 ml thickened cream
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbs caster sugar
  • 500 g Arnotts Chocolate Ripple biscuits or any plain chocolate biscuit
  • caramel sauce to decorate
  • Nutella to decorate
  • Malteser reindeers to decorate
  • silver edible balls to decorate

Instructions

Conventional Method

  • Place the cream, vanilla extract and caster sugar into a bowl. Beat with hand-held beaters or a stand mixer until soft peaks form. This will take quite a while due to the volume of cream - if you prefer, you can whip the cream in 2 seperate batches. 
  • Spread some of the whipped cream in a large circle along the outside edge of your serving plate. 
  • Hold one chocolate ripple biscuit in your hand. Spread a teaspoon of whipped cream onto the flat edge and place another chocolate ripple biscuit on top. Repeat until you have a stack of 3 biscuits in your hand. 
  • Stand the stack upright onto the cream on the serving plate. Repeat with another 3 biscuits and then join that stack to the serving platter to begin to form one circular 'wreath'. 
  • Repeat until all of the biscuits have been used.
  • Use the remaining whipped cream to spread over the entire outside of the wreath (you may have some leftover). 
  • Decorate by drizzling caramel sauce and Nutella (see note) over the top of the wreath. Add the Malteser reindeers (pressing in firmly enough to stay put!). Sprinkle over the edible silver balls. 
  • For best results, place in the fridge overnight to allow the biscuits to soften. 

Thermomix Method

  • Place the cream, vanilla extract and caster sugar into a clean and dry Thermomix bowl. Whip on Speed 3.5 until soft peaks form (this will take quite a while due to the volume of cream - I recommend doing this in 2 batches). 
  • Spread some of the whipped cream in a large circle along the outside edge of your serving plate. 
  • Hold one chocolate ripple biscuit in your hand. Spread a teaspoon of whipped cream onto the flat edge and place another chocolate ripple biscuit on top.
  • Repeat until you have a stack of 3 biscuits in your hand. Stand the stack upright onto the cream on the serving plate.
  • Repeat with another 3 biscuits and then join that stack to the serving platter to begin to form one circular 'wreath'. Repeat until all of the biscuits have been used.
  • Use the remaining whipped cream to spread over the entire outside of the wreath (you may have some leftover). 
  • Decorate by drizzling caramel sauce and Nutella (see note) over the top of the wreath.
  • Add the Malteser reindeers (pressing in firmly enough to stay put!).  
  • Sprinkle over the edible silver balls. For best results, place in the fridge overnight to allow the biscuits to soften.

Notes

I used Arnotts choc ripple biscuits for this recipe. If you can't find them, you can substitute for any plain chocolate biscuit. 
You may need to heat the Nutella slightly in the microwave so that it's easier to drizzle over the top. 
Silver edible balls can be bought in the baking section of any major supermarket.
