CF 2/60 Mini Puddings

  • Yield : 40
  • Servings : 10
  • Prep Time : 30m
  • Cook Time : 5m
  • Ready In : 60m


  • 520g packet of non-bake cake recipe e.g. Hedgehog slice mix
  • 200g dried mix fruit/fruit medley
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 125g softened butter
  • 1/2 cup Shelled Pistachio nuts broken or crushed
  • Candied or glace cherries chopped roughly
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons hot water, syrup or liquor (optional)
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons water for mixing in sugar or lemon juice


Follow the package instructions on your non-bake slice mix or simply melt the butter in a large pan on medium to low heat followed by the packet ingredients and the dried fruit,  stir and combine till all is well-mixed for roughly 5 minutes. If needed you may add 1 to 2 tablespoons of hot water to make it easier to mix, alternatively add liquor to taste.  Now allow the mixture to cool for at least 5 minutes before adding the beaten egg and stir it well to incorporate.

While the mixture is still warm, scoop a heaped teaspoon of it into one hand and then roll with both hands into mini balls. Leave them on a plate in the fridge to chill.  While they are chilling add small amounts of water/juice (lemon juice or water will retain the white colour of the icing) to the icing sugar in a bowl and make it into a thick paste. When the balls have cooled simply take a teaspoon of the icing mixture and swirl it on top of each ball to resemble snow. Now dab the iced face of each ball lightly onto the crushed pistachio nut fragments then press a piece of cherry on top.

Variations and My Story

If you are not a big fan of a rich fruit pudding then this alternative may be for you. Any bought non-bake slice/cake mixes are good for this recipe. In Australia we have our famous hedgehog slice (see picture) that is very chocolaty and crunchy because it has crushed biscuits in the mixture. You may use a chocolate cake instead after crumbling it then add crushed biscuits into it and for liquid you may use anything from condense milk to golden syrup or treacle. You may add any liquor or spirits as an alternative to the mixture if preferred. I hope you like my version and that you may decide to explore further using your own imagination too. Enjoy!
