This is a great quick recipe for mini Christmas puddings that my Mum taught me – that look wonderful and can be packaged as a gift or look great to serve up on Christmas Day!

Mini Christmas Puddings
1 dark or light fruit cake – your preference
some brandy
some orange juice
dark chocolate melts
pinch of ground cinnamon
pinch of  ground nutmeg
some almonds or dates
white chocolate melts to drizzle on top for the custard sauce effect
chopped glace cherries in green for holly and red for berry
Crumble the cake and moisten with enough brandy, some orange juice if you like  to hold the mixture together well. Roll into small balls and place on foil or baking paper to set for a few minutes. Melt the white chocolate and place about half a teaspoonful on top of each pudding.
As each of the puddings is decorated as above, place half a glacé cherry on the chocolate and allow to set. You can also be a bit decadent a dip them whole in melted chocolate let set then place your white chocolate on top.
There you have it…..Mini Chocolate Christmas Puddings

Does anyone whom has a “solids eating baby” seem to have the odd bit of biscuit on them or food in the hair which I discovered the other day when I was at the shops, thanks to the cheeky one year old whom seems to like to decorate me with food!!

    Hello there! What a cute blog so far! We actually have very similar taste it seems 🙂 I've posted a few of the same 'finds' and love a lot of the same artists for inspiration. I look forward to what's to come!
