#NickJrCraftmas project #2 : Chocolate Christmas Puddings

Time to head to the kitchen for our second project ! The instruction sheet for this one calls for 200g milk or dark chocolate (that's two bars), 100g crushed cornflakes, 200g white chocolate (two more bars) and silver balls to decorate.

We were provided with everything we needed but I decided to use up some Shredded Wheat that had been kicking around for a while in the kitchen, cluttering up the worktop, instead of the cornflakes, which the kids wanted to eat for breakfast !

Break them to bits in a bowl (or put the cornflakes in a freezer bag, remove the air (to avoid a cornflake explosion !) and crush with a rolling pin).

Break up the milk chocolate into a bowl and melt it in the microwave in 10 second bursts.

Pour the chocolate into the crushed cereal and mix thoroughly.

Arrange mini cupcake cases on a plate.

Spoon some of the mix into each one and form into a ball shape. Leave to set.

Melt the white chocolate and spread over the top of each "pudding". 

Decorate with silver balls (and any other cake decorations you may have kicking about in the kitchen cupboard !).

You can see how much fun the Madhouse kids were having !

Leave to set (again - that's the only tricky part of this recipe because everyone wanted to eat them straight away !)

Totally simple but totally delicious.

Don't forget, the #NickJrCraftmas party will be kicking off shortly so make sure you're following @cherylp59 (that's me !), @UKMumsTV and @NickJrUK, as well as the #NickJrCraftmas hashtag. Plenty more crafty fun to come !
