  1. Made the Xmas puddings for our s/w taster night. Everyone loved them. Had to make an extra batch for my husband. Love your recipes. X

  2. They look great may try them for our taster day on Wednesday thanks for all your hard work and recipes I couldn’t do this without them they are a godsend 💝😁

  3. Me and my Mom have made these today ready for taster tomorrow they are easy to make and taste amazing. Will be making them again for Christmas and they will be great to make with kids. Thank you for all your amazing recipes and ideas 🤶🏻🎅🏻🎄❤

  4. How did you roll them into balls? Mine were too sticky. Just ended up being crispy cakes 😒
    Really want to make these for the party.

    1. Hi Lisa,

      If you wait for it to cool slightly then it won’t be quite so sticky. You could also try putting it into mini pastry cases to hold it in the right place 😊

  5. Mine were also too sticky to roll into balls, even after over an hour in the fridge, so I’ve popped them in the freezer and hope that works 🤞 maybe the balance of chocolate to caramel isn’t quite right? Would 2 normal sized mars bars work better?

  6. Can’t wait to make these for my taster Xmas party, I was going to use raspberry seeds for the berries, hope they look as good as yours. Thanks x

  7. Hi there, do you think it would be okay if I made these on Wednesday evening for taster night on Thursday evening or would they go too soft or too hard?

  8. Hi, would you know the weight of the fun size Mars or the total weight of the Mars used. I wont be able to buy the fun size bars locally but would be able to buy a bar and measure. Thanks.

  9. Does any body know the amounts to use as it dosnt say I know it says four fun size mars bars but how much coco pop and how much flora light

  10. I made these today for taster/party night tonight, they worked really well. Many thanks for the recipe. I found tiny Christmas tree sprinkles at Waitrose that worked well as holly leaves and freeze dried raspberry pieces for the berries. Happy Christmas!
