Plum Pudding Christmas Truffles
1 cup dried fruit mix
1/4 cup brandy or orange juice
1 1/4 cups cake crumbs
1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind
1/2 cup icing sugar, sifted
125 g (5 rows) Cadbury Dark Cooking Chocolate, melted
125 g (5 rows) Cadbury Milky White Chocolate, melted
chopped glacÃ© cherries to decorate
1. Sprinkle the fruit with the brandy or juice, cover with plastic cling film and allow to stand for 1 hour.
2. Combine the cake crumbs, orange rind, icing sugar, melted dark chocolate with the marinated fruit mixture. Roll level teaspoons of the mixture into balls and place on paper-covered trays. Refrigerate until firm.
3. Spoon small amounts of the melted white chocolate (about the size of a 20 cent coin) onto an aluminium foil-lined tray. When the white chocolate is almost set, place a chilled truffle on each chocolate piece.
4. Drizzle the remaining white chocolate over each truffle to resemble custard, and decorate with tiny bits of cherries.
