Christmas Pudding Truffles

These truffles are very yummy and really quick to make.

I’ve adapted this from a little treat that my Mum used to make when visiting friends at Christmas. The recipe can easily be adapted depending on what you have available.

You will need :

Baking paper.
Cookie tray.
Big mixing bowl.
Fork.
Teaspoon.
Dessert spoon.
Saucepan.
Pyrex bowl.
Masterfoods cinnamon sugar.
Cadbury white chocolate cooking melts ~ half of a 250g bag.
Ocean Spray dried Craisins (cranberries).
Big Sister Plum Pudding.
Cointreau or other non creamy spirit.

Open the tin of pudding and put it in the mixing bowl. Smoosh it up with the fork.

Throw in about 2 tablespoons of Craisins.

Pour in ~3 dessert spoonfuls of Cointreau (to the bowl, not your mouth) and mix. The mixture should be damp but not soggy.

Make heaped teapoonfuls of the mixture into balls. Roll them into smooth balls using the palms of your hands.

Place on the baking paper on top of the baking tray.

Chop up a few cranberries into small pieces.

Melt about half a bag of Cadbury white choc melts in a Pyrex dish over simmering water. Stir until smooth and fully melted. Move the bowl and pan to a trivet near the truffle tray.

Pour teaspoonfuls of chocolate over a couple of truffles at a time. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and top with 2 little pieces of cranberry.

Chill in freezer until set. Carefully peel away from baking paper.

Scoff as many as you can before somebody counts how many there should have been….
