Cooking with the Kids #12daysofparenting #Day7


Thanks for hopping over from Candy Floss Dreams and welcome to my post for the 7th Day of #12daysofparenting.

A few years ago we started making homemade Christmas presents in order to save some money.  We decided after watching Nigella Lawson on the TV, to try her Christmas Puddini BonBons as they seemed simple enough for even me to make.  They went down a treat and we have actually had people request them again in following Christmas’, so they seemed like a fantastic recipe to hand down to our children and to let them help us to make them.

We always make a boozy batch and a booze free batch for the children.  I think it’s a great option for those who aren’t huge fans of Christmas pudding, but don’t mind a taste.  They also look fantastic and great in little hand made display boxes.  They also last for AGES as they have nothing in them to really go bad.



  • 125g best-quality dark chocolate, finely chopped
  • 350g leftover, or freshly cooked and cooled, Christmas pudding
  • 60ml sherry
  • 2 x 15ml tablespoons golden syrup


  • 100g white chocolate, finely chopped
  • 6 red glacé cherries
  • 6 green glacé cherries, or 6 short lengths angelica (We used food pens this year)
