Mini Christmas Puddings

My first evening back in the UK after my Shanghai adventure, was my 'Badminton Ladies' Christmas party and I had to take a sweet dish. I had jet lag so made my easy peasy mini puddings. They were a hit and everyone wanted the recipe. I was embarrassed to say how easy they are! Thought you might like the recipe too...great to have some bite sized puddings for visitors who drop in and a great little gift.

You will need a shop bought 750g Christmas Pudding, some Apple Juice, some Brandy or Rum, White chocolate and some green and red lollies (sweets)

Break up the pudding into a bowl...soften with a little juice...or Brandy/Rum if making for adults.

Roll the softened mixture into bite sized balls.....about a dessert spoon full.

Chop the lollies (sweets) into little bits, a few mm square...keep separate and refrigerate...they are easier to handle!

Melt the white chocolate...I put the bowl into a larger bowl of hot water to can microwave too!

Top each pudding with white chocolate...about 1/2 teaspoon to look like custard.

Arrange two bits of green lolly and one bit of red to look like holly on top.

Arrange on plate and you are done!

  1. Robyn, in the last week I have been to two Xmas "do's", and at both the mini Xmas puds appeared....and were quickly gone! I was wondering how to make them....your recipe, and photos, is a godsend! Thanks. I know a few people I can make them for....and I shall. When I have done mine, I hope I can say, like Jaimie Oliver would say "easy peasy" MIL xx
