Cheaty Christmas Puddings

As I’ve been counting down to Christmas with Woolworths I’ve been sharing a few recipes. So far I’ve shared a recipe for Salt & Pepper prawns, lime-glazed ham & the perfect pavlova. Now I’m turning it over to you, I want your favourite recipes. More about that in a moment. First, I want to share this cheaty recipe I whipped up this week.

Teeny little puddings have been around at Christmas for a while now. Some people make them with real Christmas pudding, others fashion them from chocolate crackles and some buy them made out of nougat. I decided to make these from little marshmallows coated in chocolate. They’re cheaty, impressive and fun for kids.

Cheaty Christmas Puddings

1 packet of Pascalls chocolate-coated marshmallows
1 bar of white chocolate
1 bag of mini M&Ms

♥ Place the marshmallows on a plate and put into the fridge to chill for a little bit {about 15 minutes}.
♥ Melt the white chocolate in a small bowl in the microwave. I do this in 10 seconds intervals, stirring after each time. It should only take 20-30 seconds all up.
♥ Using a small spoon place the chocolate on top of the marshmallows. Top with a red mini M&M.

Note: You can use any marshmallows you like. The ones I used are the ones I had.

Now back to the reader recipes. So I’ve made a few recipes, as I mentioned above, and now I want to hand it over to you. I’m asking you to share your favourite Christmas recipe. Perhaps it’s your grandma’s trifle, or your famous potato bake, whatever it is I want it. Share your favourite Christmas recipe in the comments below, and then I’ll pick my favourite three on Friday, take it to Facebook for everyone to vote for their favourite one and I’ll make it to share on my blog next week. The winning recipe will win a $100 Woolworths gift voucher and a Aussie Gift Hamper valued at $70.
