A fun, child-friendly way of using up leftover Christmas pudding

10 mins




Makes 12-15




  • 400g leftover Christmas pudding
  • 200g white chocolate
  • Sprinkles or other edible decorations
  • 12-15 popsicle sticks


Using your hands, roll the leftover Christmas pudding into 5cm balls. It should be very sticky. If it is dried out, try microwaving for 10-15 seconds to loosen.

Push the popsicle sticks gently into each Christmas pudding ball and mould the pudding around the stick so that it is firmly in place.

Roughly chop the white chocolate and add to a microwave-safe bowl. Heat on full power for short bursts (15 seconds) until fully melted, stirring in between so it doesn’t burn.

Prepare a baking tray with baking paper. One by one, dip the pudding pops into the melted white chocolate. You can coat them entirely, or just half. Dip in sprinkles, or any other garnish you prefer. Chopped nuts or gold leaf also work well!

Place the pudding pops on a baking tray to set. Once all are coated, put in the fridge to harden.
