Check out the latest recipe from Nesss blog, Mums in the Kitchen!
I adapted this recipe from one I’d seen online and it’s a bit of a combination between Rum Balls and Mini Christmas Puddings (which are both delicious recipes in their own right!) I’ve called them Mum’s Mini Christmas Treats, because I think every mum should sit back and be treated. Let’s face it – it’s the mum who’s usually responsible for Christmas present buying, wrapping and tagging, menu-planning, grocery shopping, food preparation etc etc – so here’s mum’s chance to indulge in a tasty little combination of cake, chocolate and Baileys! You can always mix it up with rum instead of Baileys, or rum essence for a non-alcoholic version. Guaranteed to be a Christmas hit!
250g sponge cake
1 tablespoon cocoa
1/2 cup dried fruit
1/2 cup almond meal
1/4 cup Baileys Irish Cream
1/4 cup apricot or strawberry jam
1/2 cup white chocolate
Mini m&ms, to decorate
Put cake and cocoa in a food processor and blitz until crumbs are formed (or crumble it with your fingers). Add remaining ingredients, except white chocolate and m&ms, and stir to combine.
Use your hands to roll balls of mixture. Place on a tray. Melt white chocolate and drizzle over the top of each ball. Top with an m&m and refrigerate until set.
