• 100g white chocolate melted

• Use cling film to line a 1.2 litre pudding bowl, leaving extra cling film hanging over the sides.
• Crush the biscuits into pieces, you can just crush with your hands or use a rolling pin
• Melt the chocolate, butter and golden syrup in saucepan over a low heat and stir occasionally.
• In a separate bowl add the crushed biscuits, glace ginger, Italian mixed peel, marshmallows and glace cherries (reserve three for decoration) and stir to combine
• Remove the saucepan from the heat once all melted and pour over the biscuit mixture and stir thoroughly to combine.
• Spoon the mixture into the lined bowl, pushing down firmly to minimise air pockets. Leave to cool, then pop in the fridge to set overnight
• The following day, turn upside down on to a wire rack that has a piece of baking parchment underneath it.
• Make the chocolate ganache, combine the dark and milk chocolate with the cream and heat on 30 second bursts in the microwave, stir thoroughly between each burst until a smooth ganache is produced
• Pour the ganache over the top of the pudding and using a palette knife ensure it is all covered. Set in the fridge for 10 minutes to firm a little
• Melt the white chocolate in the microwave, this will take around 45 seconds.
• Remove the pudding from the fridge, spoon the white chocolate on to the top and let drip down, pop the remaining 3 cherries on the top. You can add royal icing holly leaves to decorate too.
