    **Jubes**'s Note:

    A great little treat that look like Christmas puddings. These little puddings are so quick and simple to prepare. They always disappear quickly. You can use orange juice or water with a little brandy essence if you do not wish to add the alcohol. Measurements are all approximations- the mixture should be moist enough to easily roll into small walnut sized balls. Use any purchased Christmas fruit cake-even home brand turns out OK. Any sized cake is OK. You can add some extra diced glace cherries if you wish. My brother-in-law originally made these from a magazine about ten years ago- we have been making them every Christmas since.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 700 g fruitcake, store purchased. I prefer a dark fruit cake
    • 1/4 cup brandy or 1/4 cup orange juice or 1/4 cup water, with some brandy essence added
    • 250 g white chocolate, melted
    • 3 red decorative candies, use red snakes lollies
    • 5 green decorative candies, use green snake lollies

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Crumble the fruitcake with your hands into a mixing bowl.
    2. 2
      Stir in the brandy and mix thoroughly. Add enough of the brandy (or substitute) so that the mixture will easily roll into walnut sized balls. Roll into balls using your hands.
    3. 3
      Place the rolled balls onto a lined baking tray.
    4. 4
      Melt the chocolate and drizzle over the balls to represent the custard. Use a teaspoon and let the chocolate run down the sides of the little puddings.
    5. 5
      Chop the snake lollies using scissors into small slices. Add two green and one red piece to the top of the puddings. Position the lolly pieces lose together, these become the holly atop of the puddings.
    6. 6
      Refrigerate until the chocolate has set. Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated.

      I made these for Little Miss (DD) prep Christmas Festival and all the kids really enjoyed the puddings. I individually put them into mini foil cup cakes and double the serving so I had 80 extra mini puddings. I used cranberry juice for the liquid and I chopped dried cranberry into little piece and added them into the mixture for extra colour. Thanks **Jubes** for posting this "cheat" recipe

      oooh, so good! I used half brandy, half OJ. I used readymade christmas pudding, so it was a little sticky, but I put them in red and green mini cupcake foil papers, which solved the sticking-to-the-sheet problem and looks so cute!
