Pudding Truffles



  • 500g light fruitcake, coarsely chopped
  • 100g dark chocolate melts, melted
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) brandy
  • 2 tbs apricot jam
  • 250g dark chocolate melts, extra
  • 60g copha, chopped
  • 150g white chocolate melts, melted
  • Red and green glace cherries, finely chopped, to decorate


  1. Place the cake in the bowl of a food processor and process until finely chopped. Transfer to a large bowl. Stir in the dark chocolate, brandy and jam. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes or until slightly firm.
  2. Line 2 large baking trays with non-stick baking paper. Stir the cake mixture. Roll 2-teaspoonful quantities of cake mixture into balls and place on the lined trays. Place in the fridge for 1 hour or until firm.
  3. Place the extra dark chocolate and copha in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Cook on High/800watts/100% for 30 seconds. Stir. Repeat until chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth.
  4. Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper. Use a truffle dipper or fork to dip 1 truffle in the chocolate mixture to coat. Remove truffle, tapping the dipper or fork on the side of the bowl to shake off excess chocolate. Place on 1 lined tray. Repeat with remaining truffles and chocolate mixture. Set aside to set.
  5. Spoon the white chocolate into a small sealable plastic bag. Cut 1 corner from the bag to make a small hole. Drizzle a little white chocolate over each truffle. Top with glace cherry to decorate. Set aside until set.

  1. Hi! I’ll shoot something off topic because I need advice. I also have a site however it isn’t mobile friendly.
    What plug in or perhaps tools would you highly recommend?
    My website loads really slow particularly when employing an
    iPhone. I am curious on how you do it. Your site
    loads fast.

    1. Hi there, if you visit our website you will find an icon for our web designer Soyboy at the bottom of the page. That will direct you to their contact details if you are looking for a web designer! Hope that helps xx
