Getting In the Spirit Of Christmas

 It is officially 25 days until christmas.... eek! Doesn't that make your heart race a little and little beads of sweat appear on your forehead as your mind runs through the numerous tasks to be done, presents to buy, decorations to put up, crowds to fight , things to bake, presents to wrap.... and the list goes on! Why does christmas always have to be so complicated and stressful? Every year i think "let's make is less complicated" but as the days rush by it just doesn't seem to happen! Do you ever think like this? What do you do to make christmas less complicated?

These little Mini Chocolate Puddings are really easy to make and fuss free which is great for the busy lead up to christmas! Make sure you add them to your Christmas Recipe List!

Mini Choc Christmas Puddings


700g plum pudding (or fruit cake)
250g dark eating chocolate, melted
1/2 cup brandy/ or rum *optional (i only put 1-2 tablespoons)
1/2 cup icing sugar
200g white chocolate melts
green/red lollies, cut to resemble berries and leaves

1. Crumble pudding/or cake into a large bowl. Stir in melted dark chocolate, icing sugar, and alcohol.
2. Roll level tablespoons of mixture into balls, place on tray, cover, refridgerate until firm.
3. Melt white chocolate in small heatproof bowl over small saucepan of simmering water. Cool chocolate 10 min. Drizzle over puddings to form "custard"; decorate with lollies.

Simply Tea Match

I would recommend drinking our Chai Tea with theses gorgeous little Chocolate Puddings. The chai is a strong base of India teas, blended with rich warm spices; cinnamon, cloves, cardamon and ginger. The  spices in the chai tea will blend nicely with the "pudding" flavours in these little morsels. You can purchase our Chai Tea for $11.00/100g or a sample bag for $2.00.


For a unique christmas gift idea why not make some of these little mini christmas puddings in a gift pack with a packet of Simply Tea's Chai Tea? Or another flavour in our range?
Simply Tea also does gift hampers and gift packs for all occasions.... especially christmas!
