So here is another way to use up any cake or pudding that you haven't quite got around to finishing, and hate to see go to waste.
250g. fruit cake or pudding
250g. cream cheese
50g. nuts- you choose- I used the already blitzed hazelnuts I had rolling around my pantry
100g. melted dark chocolate
Dutch cocoa for the truffle rolling!
Yes you know what to do here!
Chuck everything in the processor and blitz away till well-combined
Scoop the mixture into a bowl and place in the freezer for 15 minutes
Roll into walnut sized balls
Coat in the Dutch cocoa
Keep in an airtight container in the fridge

|rolling rolling rolling-keep those truffles rolling|
These are now sitting in the fridge (well, I did sneak one for a taste test) ready for coffee and guests. Or just us! Enjoy whatever is left of your break, or if back to work, take a deep breath and keep your head up. Christmas is only 360 days away:)
