  1. Put the rice pops and raisins into a bowl. Put the butter, milk chocolate, peanut butter and marshmallows into a small saucepan. Place on a medium to low heat and stir until the chocolate and butter have melted but the marshmallows are just beginning to melt.
  2. Pour onto the rice pops and stir until well coated. Line an egg cup with cling film. Press about a tablespoon of the mixture into the egg cup. Press firmly and then remove, peel off the cling film and place the pudding into a cake case, flat-side down. Repeat with the remaining mixture. Chill until firm.
  3. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave or in bowl over a saucepan of barely simmering water. Spoon a little chocolate over the top of each pudding. Top with icing holly leaves.

I made these and they looked great but would ditch the peanut butter next time as it made them quite bitter.

I'm planning on making these tomorrow but I'm struggling to get a hold of the ready-made icing holly leaves. I've checked with my local Sainsbury's but they don't stock them. Does anyone have any tips on where I can pick some up?

These went down a treat for Christmas treat at work. Only part that took any time was the moulding - a bit fiddly - but everyone loved the look!

These are so pretty and delicious. I made two batches the first using the recipe above and the second using 40g (instead of 50g) of butter, 40g of cranberries (instead of raisins) and 40g (instead of 30g) of marshmallows. I also used good quality dark chocolate and didn't stir in the marshmallows until I had let the chocolate mixture cool a little. The 2nd batch were voted the best by the kids and the adults.

Tried these at the weekend for child's party, I omitted the peanut butter due to one peanut allergy sufferer and just upped the raisins to 40g and the mallows also. Worked a treat and looked fabulous! Did leave it to chill for quite a while to be able to form the pudding shape which I just did by hand wearing "CSI" gloves! and just popped them on a lined tray. If you can add the peanut butter I would I bet it gives a more grown up taste?
Thank you these were great.
