  1. In a glass bowl set over a pan of just simmering water, melt together the butter, dark chocolate and marshmallows. Stir often until you have a smooth chocolatey mix.
  2. Stir in the rice snaps and dried cranberries, and mix well until everything is evenly coated.
  3. Leave to cool for 5 mins before shaping into Christmas puddings. To do this, use a tablespoon and the palm of your hand to shape the mix into pudding shapes. They should be roughly the size of a golf ball. Place in the cake cases and chill for 15-20 mins.
  4. Melt the white chocolate in 20 sec bursts in the microwave, stirring between each, until fully melted.
  5. Using a teaspoon drizzle white chocolate over the puddings to look like icing. Top with the red and green sprinkles for the ‘holly’.
