Dolcini (or 'little puddings')
200 grams of dark chocolate
2 tablespoons of butter
2 tablespoons of maple syrup
500 grams of crumbled Christmas pudding
2 tablespoons of brandy
100 grams of white chocolate
15 glace cherries
Melt the dark chocolate, butter and maple syrup in a bowl over a pan of boiling water.
Cool for a few minutes, then add the crumbled Christmas pudding and and the brandy.
Mix well and then use your hands to shape the mixture into 30 small balls.
Put in the fridge to chill for 1 hour.
Melt the white chocolate in a bowl over a pan of boiling water.
Pipe or spoon the white chocolate on top of each ball and then top with half a glace cherry.
Cool and then start to eat - good luck stopping after only one!!!
