little christmas puddings
perfect to give away as a little present - if you can bear to part with them.
Recipe type: Baking
Serves: 24
What you'll need
  • 1 Christmas pudding (about 700grams)
  • a good splosh of brandy/whisky (optional)
  • 200g dark chocolate, melted (optional)
  • 150g white chocolate, melted
  • small bag of glace cherries (red and green)
  1. Break up the fruit pudding in a large bowl and add a good splosh of brandy or a spirit. This is optional..
  2. With damp hands roll about a tablespoonful of mixture into a ball and place on a lined baking tray or large plate.
  3. Pop in freezer for about 30 minutes until firm.
  4. Meanwhile cut your cherries into small pieces and assemble them on a plate to look like holly.
  5. If you'd like your puddings covered in dark chocolate then melt in the microwave. I pop mine in a big glass bowl and put it on medium for 2½ minutes and stir it a few times inbetween.
  6. Dip each ball in chocolate and set back on tray/plate. Repeat with all the balls and place back in freezer for another 20 minutes or so.
  7. Melt white chocolate and drizzle a little bit over the top of each ball and top with a tiny bit of red cherry and 2 bits of green cherry.
  8. Refrigerate until needed.
