Cheats Mini Christmas Puddings

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

These cheats Mini Christmas Puddings are easy to make and perfect for a Christmas gathering or for the kid’s school class Christmas parties.

I love making these Cheats Mini Christmas Puddings during this time of year. There are only three ingredients and they take 10 minutes to make! These are the perfect treat for a party or class or kindy party – and so easy to make!

The Arnotts Royal Chocolate Biscuits or Aldi Clouds are the perfect bite size for these puddings. I also used white chocolate melts and red and green Christmas M&M’s.

Place biscuits on the tray, melt chocolate following packet instructions. You can drizzle the chocolate on with the back of a spoon. I have used a Chocolate Melt and Decorate Squeeze bottle.

Drop chocolate onto biscuits and quickly add one red M&M, followed by a green M&M cut in half to resemble cherry and leaves before the chocolate dries. You could also use Jaffa and Mint Leaf lollies instead of M&M’s if you prefer.

Love this idea, if only i had this last night for the christmas break up the would have been such a hit!

We make these every year too. So ridiculously easy, yet look so good (and taste great too!). We usually use the mint leaves and jaffas also. We gave them as teachers gifts this year.

Leimay Cherry December 17, 2011 - 11:56 PM

I do this with Jaffas and mint leave but this year we have used jaffas for noses, half mini marshmallows as eyes and bits of pretzels for antlers and made reindeer ones too. So yummy and so nice to present

They’re gorgeous! I’ve been eyeying off the red & green m&ms for weeks but have been too cheap to buy them. Last night I got them in a Secret Santa present. I might have to give these a go.

Katrina December 22, 2011 - 1:02 AM

They are so festive!

I’ve been making these for a couple of years but I use mint leaves and jaffa’s instead of m&m’s. (The m&m’s don’t last long enough around here).

Katrina January 4, 2012 - 9:11 PM

A great alternative 🙂

Kylie December 15, 2012 - 7:26 PM

I make these with spearmint leaves & jaffas instead!

Katrina December 16, 2012 - 3:43 PM

I’ve done that in the past too, cute!
