Stained glass biscuit decoration

Give your biscuits a festive spin with just one simple addition. Melting sweets into your biscuits will give them a lovely stained glass effect which is perfect for hanging on your Christmas tree.

We’ve used a simple vanilla recipe for our stained glass biscuit but you could try a festive flavour such as cinnamon or ginger.
