Welcome to the 16th Day of my Christmas Fun blog series. Today is going to be the last day of my Christmas Fun series, because it's my last day in work! Can you believe School is already out for Christmas? It's gone so quick!
So, I thought I'd end this blog series with a real fun cookery activity - a Chocolate Christmas Pudding made out of Terry's Chocolate Orange and Maltesers.
It's quite a fiddly activity and can take a little longer to complete than you would think, but the result is super worth it! We sent these home with the kids and the families were over the moon with them! They even make a great gift to give out too! Plus - don't they just look super yummy?
Follow the directions below to find out how you can make this adorable pudding!
What you will need:
- Box of maltesers
- Terry's chocolate orange
- Greaseproof paper
- Bar of milk chocolate
- Bar of white chocolate
- Green royal icing
- Red glazed cherries
- Paper plate
Follow the directions below:
- Melt the bar of milk chocolate in a heatproof bowl in the microwave.
- Unwrap the Terry's chocolate orange and place onto greaseproof paper on top of a paper plate.
- Open the maltesers, pull them out, one by one, dip into the melted milk chocolate and then place onto the Terry's chocolate orange - the melted chocolate will make them stick to the Terry's chocolate orange.
- Once you have covered the Terry's chocolate orange in maltesers, put it into the fridge to harden.
- After a few hours, once the maltesers have hardened and stuck to the Terry's chocolate orange, pull it out and get your green icing, white chocolate and glazed cherries ready.
- Melt your white chocolate bar in a heatproof bowl in the microwave.
- Once melted, pour the white chocolate over the top of the Terry's chocolate orange to make it look like the image above.
- Cut out two holly leaf shapes out of the green royal icing and place these on top of the white chocolate on the pudding.
- Add the two glazed cherries on top, in between the holly leaves.
- Put back into fridge to harden.
- Once harden - it's done and you're ready to eat!
