Truffles for Christmas

11:30 am on 9 December 2013


  • 1 x 700g rich fruit Christmas pudding
  • ½ cup cherry or orange flavoured liqueur
  • 400g (approx.) dark chocolate buttons (use milk button if you prefer)
  • 120g (approx.) white chocolate buttons
  • red and green glace cherries


Using a suitable microwave bowl break up the pudding into small pieces.

Pour over with desired liqueur. Microwave for approx. 5 minutes.

When cool mix well and roll into truffle size balls.

Set aside for the balls to firm – placing in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes will help.

Melt chocolate buttons in microwave set at 50% power.

Dip the truffles in the melted chocolate – use a dipping tool or a normal size fork and transfer the truffles onto a tray lined with baking paper or foil.

When chocolate set dip top in white chocolate and decorate with small pieces of red and green cherries.

From Nine To Noon
