If you are a new visitor to my blog, you may think this is a candy blog! I’ve been doing a lot of candy making this past week because I think it’s important to get all of the gift ideas out of the way before it gets too close to Christmas. I promise I will start posting proper dishes soon. This recipe is probably the easiest so far. They are getting easier and easier, but that’s because at this point all of you are cooking your arses off. On the seventh day of Christmas Dia brings to you her Giant Figgy Pudding Truffles!
1 Vegan Figgy Pudding (any size) (Most Figgy and Christmas puddings come vegan without them advertising them as vegan. They don’t contain eggs, dairy or honey. Some even come vegan and gluten free.)
150g bar of vegan milk chocolate
1 cup of mixed nuts
Chop the nuts in a food processor or blender.
Melt the chocolate in the microwave in short bursts of 20 seconds on a low heat.
Take the Figgy pudding and break up into pieces.
Roll pieces to make giant truffle sized balls.
Dip the balls into the melted chocolate and then into the chopped nuts.
Leave to set in fridge for an hour.
Put in tiny Christmas boxes and tie with ribbon if giving away as a gift.
