Chocolate Christmas Pudding Recipe

Written by Yeyen

A festive treat without the fuss, 
A chocolatey treat for all of us,
Simple, easy and fun to do,
Voila, a yummy Christmas pudding for all of you!

You will need

125g chocolate
35g  butter
200g Madeira/ sponge cake
2 tbsp icing sugar
‘Holly’ icing decorations


Break the sponge cake into crumbs (perfect job for small hands!) and place in a bowl

Break up the chocolate and place in a bowl, melt by putting the bowl over a pan of simmering water

Add in the butter and stir until liquid

Pour the mixture into the cake crumb bowl and mix

As the chocolate cools create round ‘balls’ using your hands

Put the balls on some greaseproof paper and place in the fridge to cool for at least 1 hour

Once cooled mix the icing sugar with some water and drizzle over the top, decorate with icing holly decorations

Pop in the fridge to keep cool until you are ready to serve them!

If you want to add a bit of extra taste, raisins or chopped nuts taste yummy when added to this recipe!
