These Mini Christmas Pudding Truffles make a great Christmas Day treat, or even a DIY Christmas gift. They are easy enough to make that even the kids can get involved, and best of all it’s a no bake recipe.
We made ours with a pre-packaged dark fruit cake, but it’s also a great way to use up leftover Christmas pudding. You can also get creative with the decorations; we used chopped up m&ms, but you can decorate yours with any lollies you like!
To make these mini pudding, first process your fruit cake until crumbs form. Then, add the crumbs to some melted butter and dark chocolate.
Wet your hands slightly (this helps stop the cake mixture sticking to your hands) and roll tablespoons of mixture into balls. Next, melt some white chocolate and use a teaspoon to drizzle this over the mini puddings.
Decorate with chopped m&ms or any alternate lollies. Refrigerate until firm and they are ready to serve. Be warned, they taste just as good as they look and will be gone in a flash!
- 800g dark fruit cake
- 100g dark chocolate
- 30g butter
- 250g white chocolate
- red and green m&ms
Line a baking tray with baking paper and set aside.
Roughly chop the fruit cake into chunks and process in a food processor until the cake resembles large crumbs.
In a large microwave safe bowl, melt together the dark chocolate and butter using the microwave. Add the fruit cake crumbs and mix until well combined.
Take tablespoons full of the cake mixture and roll into balls, placing each ball on the prepared baking tray.
In another bowl, melt the white chocolate in the microwave. Use a teaspoon to pour a little melted white chocolate over each ball. Cut the red m&ms into quarters and the green m&ms into halves, and arrange two green halves and one red quarter on each ball.
Allow to set in the fridge for at least an hour before serving.
