The kids are just going to love this impressive Maltesers Christmas pudding. It’s the perfect Christmas pudding alternative that swaps that fruit and boozy soaked sponge for a rich, soft chocolate sponge instead. Decorate with Maltesers galore, drizzle in white chocolate and top with glacĂ© cherries and glitter to make it look like a real Christmas pudding. This dessert would make the perfect centre piece for Christmas Day, it’s delicious by itself but you could always add some cream and ice cream if you’re feeling like you need a bit more indulgence! This recipe serves 12 people and will take around 50 mins to cook – perfect for a big crowd.
