Christmas Brunch

Here is my menu for Christmas Brunch this year.....

We have recently moved house - been here 1 and a half weeks and wanted to host something for Christmas, but not the 'main event.'  Christmas brunch was decided upon at our house for 16 of us and we will all then go to my parents house on the river for a very late lunch at 3.30.

Here is what I plan to serve: - click on links below for some of the recipes...

Croissants filled with various toppings - I plan to fill some of them with EDC Nutella  and some of them with my nan's TMX Apricot Jam.

Brioche from EDC I will put a big bowl of Honeycomb Butter with it.
Recipe is Thermomix Butter - but with no oil/water just straight EDC butter really.  Once butter is made add 100g honeycomb (no chocolate on the outside) and 2 Tbsp honey and combine on speed 6 for 15 seconds or until well combined.  It is AMAZING....A friend Bek told me about it and is a converted Bill Granger recipe.

Shop bought Croissants filled with Ham and Cheese - pop in oven for 10min or so until warm and toasted

Pina Colada Fruity Dream - Basic EDC fruity dream but no egg or butterfly needed.
Recipe is 150g Frozen Banana, 300g Frozen Pineapple, 1 ice cube tray of frozen coconut Milk.
Pull out of freezer half hour or so beforehand - just so it's not rock solid frozen. 
First crush coconut milk on Speed 9 for 10 seconds.  Then add fruit, combine on speed 9 for 1 minute.  You may have to move it around a bit with the spatula, feel free to add half MC of water if it's too frozen.

Fruit Christmas Tree  - No recipe easy and don't even need the amazing TMX. 

Non Alcoholic Wine - yet to decide what brand - served with Orange Juice if people wish

Christmassy Punch - Also got this from a friend who served it last year....said it was delish. 
Recipe is 1L lemonade, 2 cups cranberry juice, 1 lime, thinly sliced, 1/2 cup raspberries, 6 mints leaves - combine either just in jug or in TMX and combine on Reverse, Speed 2.
