To add extra colour and flavour to the drizzle, we used blond chocolate (white chocolate with caramelised sugar added) from M&S. Valrhona does an excellent one, too. If you can’t get it, use good quality white chocolate.
Cook any offcuts to make mini mince pie canapés.
Keep the decorated mince pies in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Or freeze once baked (before decorating), then defrost and refresh in a hot oven before decorating and serving.
Eccles cakes are traditionally served with lancashire cheese, so you could serve this wreath with your festive cheeseboard.
