Mix all the truffle ingredients together then put small spoonfuls on to greaseproof paper either on a baking tray or a plate

Put them in the fridge for a couple of hours to harden slightly. Then roll them with clean hands in to pudding shaped balls.

Melt some white chocolate and dribble over the puds, then decorate with the sugar holly or cut up glacé cherries.

Put them back into the fridge to harden until wanted.
