Christmas hacks: How to turn your favourite biscuits into Christmas puddings!

These ideas are so easy the kids can do them by themselves!

Fancy making something a little different for Christmas this year? We've got novelty food all wrapped up when it comes to Christmas pudding-shaped fun.

The kids are going to love making and eating these Christmas pudding treats. Of course, they're not made of Christmas pudding - they're made with your favourite biscuits instead including Tunnock's tea cakes, chocolate Digestives and those American classics, Oreos.

It really doesn't take much to turn these popular biscuits into festive puds. All you'll need is icing sugar, white chocolate, coloured fondant and of course some handily round biscuit jar favourites.

Tunnock's Tea Cakes Christmas puddings

To make these Tunnocks tea cake puds you'll need to mix a few tablespoons of icing sugar with a few tablespoons of water to make a thick white paste.

Spoon the icing over the top of the tea cake and leave to set. Meanwhile make the 'berries' and 'holly leaves' using red and green fondant, and a cookie cutter for the leaves.

Pop them on top of your 'Christmas pudding' and leave to set.

Chocolate Digestive Christmas puddings

Take your favourite, be it dark or milk chocolate Digestives and dip into melted white chocolate. Let the chocolate drizzle down the biscuit. Leave to set slightly whilst you make your fondant berries and holly leaves. Ta-dah! It's that easy.

Oreo Christmas puddings

We've used the same method as the chocolate biscuits to make these Oreo puds. Dip in white chocolate, add the festive fondant 'garnish' and leave to set. If you want to take your Oreo puds to the next level you could add them to cake pop or lollipop sticks like we've done in our Oreo pops recipe.

It really is that simple to transform some of your favourite supermarket biscuits to resemble that classic festive pudding.
