Before we begin I’ll just clarify that the only thing remotely Christmas puddingy about this treat is the look (and perhaps the stem ginger and cinnamon should you choose to add it in). Anyway, let’s commence.

Any cake that starts like this…

… can only be a triumph. So simple. Popcorn (could obviously use rice crispies or cornflakes), raisins, cranberries, smashed up ginger nuts, marshmallows, stem ginger and syrup, some ground cinnamon, oh, and lots of melted chocolate. Of course, this is the type of recipe which will happily accommodate swaps and changes of ingredients and quantities, just make sure you have enough melted chocolate to bind them all together. Basically, mix all the dry ingredients together along with the syrup from the stem ginger if you so wish, then pour on the melted choc.

Mix thoroughly…

Line a pudding bowl with scrunched up greaseproof paper and press the mixture in. I had so much mixture I did a large bowl and a small one too.

Leave to set in the fridge overnight. Once set, lift or of the bowl and peel off the paper.

Melt some white chocolate and pour over the top, before decorating with sons raisins and cranberries.
