Welcome to Day 15 of Blogmas!

Over the last week I have been busy baking some quick & easy Christmas treats that look and taste amazing. I have already uploaded a few Christmas treats posts and now I am sharing another recipe that I saw on Zoella's channel. I was also inspired by her to make the Chocolate Tree Brownies, and another thing she made were these Rice Krispie mini puddings; they look like mini Christmas puddings but they are so easy to make and can be made with children. You can find Zoella's Quick & Easy Christmas Treats video here. You do not have to be an experienced baker to make these mini puddings, and you don't even have to use the oven at all to make them. Zoella was inspired to make these Rice Krispie mini puddings from a blog called "She Who Bakes". I know that there are other recipes on this blog that are just as great and I am definitely going to try out a couple of other recipes I have seen. These would be perfect to make for Christmas Day to enjoy while watching a Christmas film with the family. Or you could make them and wrap them in cellophane and give them as Christmas presents or as stocking fillers!

Makes: Approximately 30 | Prep Time: 40-50 (including decorating and chilling) | 
Cooking Time: Less than 5 minutes to melt the chocolate

What Will You Need ...

360g Large Marshmallows
100g Unsalted Butter
200g Rice Krispies
300g Milk Chocolate
200g White Chocolate
Holly Leaf Decorations

Method ...

Firstly in a saucepan melt the butter. Once the butter has completely melted add in the milk chocolate and keep stirring until that too has melted and you have a smooth mixture. If you are using large marshmallows then I recommend cutting them into smaller chunks. Then add the marshmallows to the chocolate and butter mixture. Stir the marshmallows and chocolate until everything has fully melted and combined into a smooth mixture. Take the saucepan off the heat and add the Rice Krispies. Mix until the Rice Krispies are covered in the chocolate and marshmallow mixture.

Leave the Rice Krispie mixture to cool slightly. They are cool enough when you can hold some of the mixture in your hand without it feeling too hot. Once the mixture has cooled slightly, spoon a tablespoon of the mixture into your hands and roll into a ball. Then place the balls of Rice Krispie mixture onto a line baking sheet and put in the fridge for between 15 and 20 minutes.

Break up the white chocolate into smaller chunks and place into a small bowl. Then melt the white chocolate (either in a microwave or over a saucepan of boiling water). If you are melting it in the microwave then keep stirring after every 30 seconds so you can see if the chocolate is splitting. With a teaspoon, take a spoonful of the white chocolate and pour on top of each of the Rice Krispie balls. Finally while the chocolate is still runny, add a holly leaf decoration on top, so they look like mini Christmas puddings. Finally pop the mini puddings into the fridge to firm up for a further 15 to 20 minutes; or until the white chocolate has fully set.

I made Christmas pudding truffles every single year for Christmas, but they do have alcohol in them, so these are a perfect alternative for someone who does not like alcohol or for children. They are so easy to make and you can easily get your children involved when making these; just let the mixture cool a lot if they are helping to roll the mixture into balls. These just look amazing and they are so easy to make and take no time at all. Make sure to check out the blog "She Who Bakes" as they have some amazing recipes, and they were the blog that created this recipe in the first place.
