Mini Christmas Pudding Truffles
This recipe has a few cheats in it, but will always remind me of Christmas at home as my mother makes these every year. Of course, you can go the whole way yourself and make the Madeira cake, fruit mince and marzipan. Heck, I guess you could make the chocolate if you really wanted to!
The easiest way to dip them is to place a toothpick into the top of each truffle, freeze the whole truffles (with toothpick) for around 30 minutes prior to dipping. Then carefully remove the toothpick whilst the chocolate is still setting. You will be covering up the little blemish with the holly anyway. Merry Christmix!!
