Anyway, I have decided to show you wonderful Instructiblites how to make them, I do have a link to one page which gives Nigellas own log about how to make them... It's a tad tedious... but if you want to give it a look here you go:
I think that they make great presents, or an alternative to a Christmas card! So with that in mind I'm going to enter them into the competition! WISH ME LUCK
Step 1: What You'll Need!
125g best-quality dark chocolate, finely chopped
350g leftover, or freshly cooked and cooled, Christmas pudding
2 x 15ml tablespoons golden syrup
125g best-quality white chocolate, finely chopped
PERSONALLY I prefer to do things a little more haphazardly.
2 Bars of Value Chocolate (one plain, and one milk.... two bars of one flavour would do... I just used what I had)
1 Bar of white Chocolate
1 value Christmas pud
2 table spoons (or there about) of Golden syrup
Red and green Jelly diamonds/ Fruit pastels
Spoons, and forks
Step 2: IMPORTANT! No Biological Warfare Please! Scrub Up!
# Remove any rings/ Jewellery that may come in contact with the food
# Wash your hands before you cook
# After handling Eggs, its good practice to wash your hands (Stops the spread of Salmonella and such)
# DO NOT Lick or taste off a spoon THEN put it back into the bowl you took the sample from... EWW... If I wanted your germs I would kiss you!
Before I start sounding like a rambling germ freak, I'm sure you'll agree this is all common sense... But some people just don't ...get... that its not hygienic
Step 3: Crumb Up!
Step 4: Death by Chocolate? Sign Me Up!
Fill a sauce pan with maybe an inch of water( Just enough so that when you put your pyrex bowl in, the boiling water won't over flow)
When the water has boiled take off the heat (and turn off the flame... Don't burn down the house now!)
Place your Pyrex bowl inside the sauce pan
Chuck your chocolate into the pyrex bowl
Using a fork stir your chocolate until you have a gooey melted yummy mess
Resist urges to eat the chocolate, or lick the fork ;)
Step 5: Golden Delight!
Now lick your syrup spoon... and resist the urge to eat your melted chocolate/syrup
Step 6: Mix N' Mash Up
I gave my mix a bit of a stir with a fork, then gloved up and went nuts mixing it by hand
If you don't have the gloves on be prepared to be CONSTANTLY washing your hands
Step 7: Balls to This Step!
Step 8: REFRIGERATE REFRIDGERATE /Dalek
Now to firm them up, I placed the balls into the fridge... you don't have to ... but I found it a lot easier to put the decorations on
also... look how sophisticated I am... White Wine...Parmesan... and Brie? hehe... Just as well you can't see the shelf with angel delight and larger ;)
Step 9: Wash Up!
Oi... come on now don't procrastinate!
Okay so I bunged it all in the dish washer too... but I won't tell if you don't!
Step 10: The Rotten Fiddly Bit
What you need do here, is cut some red and green either glacé cherries or sweets into shapes that could be mistaken for holly...
So basically one round or square red bit... and two either triangular or rectangular green bits... If your unsure... see the pictures
Step 11: Death by Chocolate... Again????
Step 12: Decorate... Another Rotten Fiddly Bit
I found that using a pair of cocktail sticks to put on the jelly sweet decoration stopped them from getting stuck to my fingers and subsequently being eaten
Step 13: Sit Back Wrap and Enjoy
I find that if you put them on a plate and take them into work, you can save yourself on time and money wrapping them hehe
Hope you enjoyed this I'ble... I love making these things, although they are a little fiddly, I love seeing how much people enjoy them
Cheerio guys and gals... Stay tuned for my other Christmas sweet instructable hopefully coming tomorrow
