These things are all over my facebook right now! I will admit, its too much chocolate for me. I like chocolate but not this much. They make lovely handmade gifts though.
Depending on how cheap you can source the ingredients depends on the price of this. From a quick glance i have priced this at around £3.50 a pudding not including the marzipan holly on top.
1 Terrys Chocolate Orange
1 Large box of Malteasers
1 bar of milk or dark chococlate
1 bar of white chocolate
Green and red icing or marzipan for the holly
How to make the Puddings
The assembly is quite simple and something kids will love making.
- To start place a unwrapped but whole and intact Terrys Chocolate Orange and place onto a small cake board or plate. You can use a little melted chocolate on the bottom to hold in place if you wish.
- Melt some of the milk or dark chocolate and start dipping Malteasers into the chocolate (just a little it does not need covering). Stick the Malteaser onto the outside of the chocolate orange until completely covered.
- Allow to harden or stick in the fridge for a minute to speed it up (optional i just found this helped keep them stuck on)
- Melt some white chocolate and spoon the melted chocolate onto the top of the Malteaser covered chocolate orange. If it drips that adds to the effect.
- Optional - cut out some holly leaves from green icing or marzipan and make a couple of red berries to decorate the top.
If making these for gifts, cellophane bags can be purchased online or in some pound stores. Add a little bit of ribbon and a gift tag, place into a gift bag and give away to grateful friends and family.
Word of warning though, these take a little bit of effort to eat :)
