Even though I used mini candy canes, they were still a little long for the Milky Way Bars, so I cut about 1.5cms off the curled end, to shorten them.
Place a handful of choc buds in a small microwavable dish. Melt on high for 45 seconds, then stir. If choc buds haven’t melted, cook on high for 15 second intervals until they are melted.
Using a teaspoon, place chocolate evenly on the base of the Milky Way Bar and then press candy canes lightly onto the melted chocolate, so that they stick to the bottom.
Turn the Milky Way Bar over and allow to set.
Once the candy canes have set, gently press a Teddy Grams into the Milky Way Bar. I find holding the sides of the bar, prevents the bar from squeezing out.
Also if you are making these in warm weather, I recommend putting the Milky Way Bars in the fridge prior to making them, so that they do not melt or go out of shape easily with the handling.
Keep in an airtight container, in a cool place until ready to eat.
So cute!!! ♥
