After all the turkey, roast potatoes, Yule log and Quality Streets, it’s not unusual to have lots of your Christmas fruit cake/pud left over. Whilst fruit cake will last for a considerable length of time if wrapped properly, here are a few staff recommended recipes to upgrade your leftovers:
George’s Christmas Pud Bites
Crumble your leftover Christmas cake/pud into a bowl.
Melt some dark, milk or white chocolate/leftover Christmas chocolates over a bain marie.
To 2 parts of chocolate, add 1 part of double cream to the bowl and remove from the heat.
Mix with the Christmas pud. Add a splash of brandy or whisky, for adult-only versions!
Stir thoroughly and then leave to set in the fridge for a few hours.
Roll the mixture into balls. before dusting with chopped nuts or simply icing sugar to finish.
