Mini Christmas pudding trifles – leftovers!

mini christmas pudding trifles

What to do with all the remnants of the year’s biggest feast?

Well the classic Turkey and ham pie goes down a treat and is always welcome on a cold January night, plus it’s freezable.

Any cheese leftover will make a very tasty Cheeseboard quiche always a favourite of mine which is good for lunch or dinner. And if there is any Christmas Pudding leftover, then these mini trifles are delicious, look good and are suitable for the whole family.

They take minutes to make and can be kept in the freezer, plus they’ll use up any custard, brandy sauce and cream you have lying around too.

The Handpicked Collection invited me to browse their site and choose a couple of items to review. I fell in love with these gorgeous glasses and teaspoons and decided to use them for my mini Christmas pudding trifles.

Important to remember is this is quite a filling pudding as it is rich so the smaller you make it the more likely it will be eaten.
