A huge credit to Christmas cake: It lasts a lifetime. Almost. Which means very often one is left with a lifetime’s supply of Christmas cake after Christmas 🙂
Dark (or any chocolate) is here to help you, with the aid of some white chocolate or royal icing. Truffles! That you can give away if you feel like it!
I apologise for the inferior quality photos; they were about to be devoured 🙂
Christmas Cake Bon Bons
Leftover Christmas Cake, in any quantity
Chocolate (about 75g grams per cup of cake)
Also, some white chocolate, dried cranberries or red and green gummy lollies etc
Melt your chocolate. Crumble in the Christmas cake, adding a bit at a time, and mix until well combined. If the mixture is not very thick and is quite glossy from the chocolate still, add a bit more cake.
Roll into tablespoon-sized balls and chill until firm.
Melt the white chocolate if using, and dollop a little bit on top of each bon bon (or use the royal icing instead if this is your preferred option). Cut up the dried fruit/lollies/whatever you are using and arrange on top. Leave to set.
Lasts well in the fridge for even over a week.
