We all agree that the best kid friendly recipe that is easy to make, cheap, non alcohol based and no cooking required, are these small Christmas puddings.


  • Purchase 1 (800g) dark fruit cake- Black and Gold or supermarket brand is fine
  • 6 tablespoons of orange juice (one orange)
  • 100g white chocolate, melted – use white choc buttons or white cooking chocolate 
  • 4 red snakes, cut into 0.5cm lengths 
  • 8 green snakes, cut into 0.5cm lengths


  1. In a large mixing bowl, break fruit cake into crumbs.
  2. Add the orange juice and mix together.
  3. Roll one tablespoonful of mixture into a ball and set aside on some plastic wrap.
  4. Drizzle cooled, melted white chocolate on top of each ball.
  5. Press one piece of red snake 'berry' in the centre of the chocolate and add two green snake 'leaves' either side - ta da, holly!

Store in an air tight container in a cool place.  They will keep for up to 2 weeks so you can make Christmas last into the new year.
