These chocolate balls are a massive hit in my house and are something we have made every Christmas for as long as I can remember. They don’t last long at all.

I went to make a batch today and thought I’d get a little creative and turn these delicious little morsels into little Christmas puddings. So cute! 

What I love about this recipe is you can add any flavours you like two the mix. Some peppermint essence is great and Christmasy as is half a teaspoon of mixed spice! 

If you make them please come and share a photo on our Facebook page or come and say in our Facebook group. I would LOVE to see them!
