Christmas Pudding Corn Flake Cakes decorated with holly sprinkles

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.

  • Melt the chocolate and add the cornflakes and mix in well.
  • Spoon the mix between the cupcake cases or half sphere mould and pop in the fridge to set.
  • When they have set remove from the fridge and turn them out and over so they look like little puddings.
  • Melt the white chocolate and set aside to cool slightly so it thickens up a little.
  • Pop a spoonful of white chocolate on the chocolate puddings and add the holly and red pearls and leave to set.
  • Pop in the fridge to set.
  • Enjoy and Merry Christmas.
Christmas Pudding Corn Flake Cakes ready to eat and perfect to make at Christmas with children.

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.
