- 125g best-quality dark chocolate melted
- 150g white chocolate melted
- 350g leftover, or freshly cooked and cooled, Christmas pudding
- 1 teaspoon of sweet sherry
- 2 x 15ml tablespoons of golden syrup
1 Line a tray (that will fit in the fridge) with parchment paper or foil and set to one side while you make the bonbons.
2 Melt the dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl suspended above a pan of simmering water, or in the microwave according to the manufacturer's guidelines.
3 Crumble the cold Christmas pudding into a bowl, add the sherry and golden syrup and stir briskly till all is incorporated.
4 Pour in the melted dark chocolate and stir again: this will make the mixture much more cohesive.
5 Using your hands, pinch out small lumps of the mixture onto the parchment paper and roll so that each pudding is the size of a chocolate truffle
6 Cover with clingfilm and slot into the fridge to firm up.
