Mini Plum Puddings

Are you looking for an easy recipe for Christmas treats? Well, you have found the place. These mini plum puddings could not be easier. Just crumble up ready made plum pudding or Christmas cake, bind with melted chocolate, add some booze for a little cheer and roll into balls. Simple!

The recipe for these puddings comes from Best Recipes. You will need:

700g plum pudding or Christmas cake
250g dark chocolate
1/4 cup brandy
50g white chocolate
Glacé cherries

Crumble up the pudding or cake in a large bowl (I used my own homemade cake but store bought is perfect). Melt the chocolate and add it to the bowl with the brandy. Mix well to thoroughly coat the cake with chocolate.

Roll the mixture into walnut sized balls. Chill for an hour or so to set up the balls.

Quarter the glacé cherries.  Melt the white chocolate and drizzle over the top of each ball to resemble custard. Top each pudding ball with a quarter of a glacé cherry.

I was dreaming of making fruit cake with chocolate chunks but have been too busy - however the idea of plum pudding bound by chocolate is just what I would love instead - and they are v cute

I just looked up white bigos- Polish Hunters Stew. It looks delicious, and I believe I tried it once at Truffles, a Polish cafe in Balaclava.
