Prep Time 20 minutes
Servings 20 truffles


  • 450 g gluten and dairy free Christmas pudding
  • 200 g dark chocolate
  • 1 tbsp rum
  • cocoa powder (optional, for dusting)
  • edible glitter (optional, for dusting)


  1. Cook the Christmas pudding as per the pack instructions - I opted to do this in a microwave as it's quicker.

  2. Remove the pudding from the pack into a large mixing bowl and 'mush' it up with a fork. Set aside to cool for 10-15 minutes

  3. Meanwhile melt the dark chocolate in a separate bowl. Pour the chocolate onto the cooled Christmas pudding and add the rum. Mix well.

  4. Leave to cool for a couple of minutes, and as it cools it will start to thicken and become more malleable. Shape the mixture into little balls and, if desired, roll in the cocoa powder. Chill in the fridge until set and then devour them!
