A home cook has whipped up a delicious Christmas cake using just three ingredients without going anywhere near an oven.

Mother-of-two Chantelle Ellem, from New South Wales, shared her ‘no bake’ recipe to create a festive wreath dessert in less than 30 minutes.

The founder of Fat Mum Slim said all you need is Woolworths’ $1.80 thickened cream, chocolate chip cookies from $3 and fresh mixed berries.

Ingredients to make a Christmas wreath cake 

Woolworths Thickened Cream 300mL – $1.80 or 600mL for $2.90

Woolworths Chocolate Chip Cookies – $3 for a 12-pack 

Mixed berries – prices vary in store

‘This has to be the easiest, affordable, most impressive dessert out there! Don’t you think? [Oops, I do believe I just blew my own trumpet],’ she said.

‘Grab all the ingredients from Woolies, including the choc-chip cookies from the bakery section and all the beautiful fruits from the fresh produce section. And then, whip it all up in under 30 minutes.’

Ms Ellem said she whips the cream so she could use to assemble her wreath-shaped dessert.

To form the round circle, she uses the whipped cream to sandwich the choc-chip biscuits together.

Ms Ellem said the cake should be served cold on Christmas Day.

‘The cream turns the cookies to more a cake consistency which is yum but you wouldn’t want to eat it warm,’ she said.

The savvy home cook said you can prepare the dessert the night before Christmas but suggested decorating the cake with fresh fruits on the same day as serving.
