Home Made Festive Vegan Biscuit Box
This Christmas I’m going to make 2 big biscuit boxes to share out between my family and Lewi’s. Filled with florentines, cookies and hazelnut bark this is going to be a delicious treat for everyone to tuck into with a cup of tea by the fire.
What’s in the box?
Well, this is up to you, however I’ve laid out some of my easier recipes to keep your time in the kitchen to a minimum and allow you to make multiple products with similar ingredients.
Florentines- These are possibly my favourite biscuit of all. Best when served from chilled to keep them in tact, they literally melt in the mouth.
Hazelnut Bark- This is brilliant, it’s just 2-3 ingredients (chocolate, hazelnuts and sprinkles) to make a delicious crunchy chocolate treat.
Cookies- I’ll link the recipe to my ultimate vegan chocolate chip cookies as these are perfect for a delicious treat to enjoy with the family.
Flapjacks- Now these aren’t in this biscuit box photographed but will definitely be in my next one so I’ll link that recipe here. Using the same ingredients as the florentines, they’re really easy to make!
Hazelnut Brittle Recipe
120g pack of hazelnuts
80g chocolate (mint or orange flavour works well)
1 tbsp festive sprinkles of choice
1/2 tsp sea salt
Preheat the oven to 200ºC
Place the hazelnuts on a tray and roast for 10 minutes
Once baked, spread out on a large place or lined baking tray
Melt the chocolate and coat the hazelnuts, mix until all the hazelnuts are coated, add the sprinkles on top and leave to set for around 30 minutes in the fridge

- 3 tbsp light brown sugar
- 80 g oats you can use porridge or steel cut for this
