SERVES: 4-8 PREP: 15 MINS COOK: 4 MINUTES

Ingredients 

  • 1 Gadsby’s cherry cake
  • 4 slices Christmas pudding
  • 1 box Grantham Gingerbread
  • 200g sliced pineapple, strawberries and raspberries
  • 1 packet The Naked Marshmallow Co. marshmallows
  • 2 x 200g bars Co-op Truly Irresistible dark chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 1-2 tbsp dark rum
  • 100ml single cream

Method

1. Cut the cherry cake into 2cm thick slices and then stamp out star shapes using a 5cm cookie cutter. Repeat with the Christmas pudding slices, if you like.

2. Arrange the items for dipping around the edge of a flat platter or serving board. Add some canapé skewers or cocktail sticks.

3. Put the chocolate, rum and cream in a small saucepan and heat gently for 3-4 mins or until melted, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and stir until smooth. Pour the hot sauce into a small serving bowl, place on the platter and serve.

TIP: The sauce can be made up to two days in advance.  When you are ready to serve, simply heat in the microwave for 1 min. Stir well and heat for a further 1 min or until warm.
