Chocolate & fruit cake rum balls

One of the jobs that put me through uni was working at a hairdresser. Which mostly involved making coffee, giving head massages and sweeping the floor.

But one of the most memorable parts of that job was Helen’s famous mini Christmas puddings. People would always “just drop in to say hello” from the 1st of December in hope of taking home one of the absolutely dense, decadent mini puddings.

Alas, they were not gluten free, refined sugar free, or anything free, really. So there are my ode to those tasty mini puddings. This time, they’re gluten free, refined sugar free and can be alcohol free (I’m not big on alcohol, so have made mine without the booze).  

I've used Young Living's Christmas Spirit Essential Oil for a flavour pop, but I've also given you options to create a similar flavour without the oil. To find out more about essential oils, head over here.
