Mini Christmas Fruit Puddings

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Chef floWer

I often get a lot of comments about these mini fruit puddings but I never give my secret away (I'm actually cheating). I don't use alcohol so I use cranberry Juice. Fun for the kids to help. This recipe was given to me from an old work mate. Thanks CC.

This also works very well with left over steamed christmas pudding (which it is imitating, anyway), if there ever is any. I added more brandy to mine and also more white chocolate to the glaze.
