Christmas Pudding Cornflake Cakes

December 15, 2015Sew White

Christmas Pudding Corn Flake Cakes are great fun to make and even more fun to eat. Perfect for children to make during the festive season. Cornflakes make such great easy chocolate fridge cakes that it is simple to do and upgrade them in time for Christmas. A chocolate cornflake cake covered with white chocolate and decorated with Christmas sprinkles to resemble a cute Christmas pudding. Easy no-bake Christmas pudding cakes.

This is a very simple and rather fun way to make Christmas puddings for chocolate fans. The fantastic traditional and brilliant childhood corn flake cake has had a Christmas facelift. It’s fun to make and quick so perfect to make with children who fancy doing more baking and getting their hands dirty in the kitchen. It’s also no-bake so no worries about burning hands or fingers. The chocolate itself can get hot so do please be careful with that.

I used a half-sphere mould to make them but you can also use cupcake cases and when they’re set you can then turn them upside down to get the shape. Cups from cup and saucers can work too.

Once you’ve turned out the chocolate corn flake cake comes the fun decorating bit. Melt while chocolate and drizzle it over the top. It’s fun to do and doesn’t matter if it gets messy. It’s all going to be eaten and enjoyed. Once you’ve added the white chocolate go mad with the sprinkles. You can keep it classic like I have to look like a Christmas pudding or just go crazy and add all the sprinkles. I love sprinkles. They are so much to play with especially on fridge bakes like this as the finished result is meant to be fun.
