How do I make Rice Pop Christmas Puddings? 

Follow these simple steps to whip up around 18-24 plush puds: 

  1. 1. Combine rice pops and raisins in a bowl. 
  1. 2. In a small saucepan, add butter, milk chocolate, peanut butter, and marshmallows. Heat it over medium to low heat. Continue stirring until the chocolate and butter melt and the marshmallows start melting slightly. 
  1. 3. Pour this mixture over the rice pops and stir until the rice pops are thoroughly coated. 
  1. 4. Line an egg cup with cling film. Scoop about one tablespoon of the mixture into the lined egg cup. Press the mixture firmly and then lift it out. Carefully remove the cling film and transfer the pudding to a cake case, with the flat-side facing downwards. Repeat with the remaining mixture. 
  1. 5. Chill them until they become firm. 
  1. 6. Melt the white chocolate either in a microwave or over a saucepan of barely simmering water. Making sure not to overheat the chocolate. 
  1. 7. Spoon a small amount of melted chocolate over each pudding. Finish off by adding icing holly leaves on top. 

Can you make them in advance and freeze them?  

Absolutely! Make the chocolate cereal balls and freeze them. Store the balls in an airtight container with greaseproof paper between them. They can be frozen for up to 6 weeks. Just remember to bring them to room temperature before decorating or serving.
