Get making!

  1. Make the mini puddings: Simply place all of the ingredients into a food processor and whizz up for at least 30 seconds until a soft dough-like texture forms.
  2. Divide into 12 and roll into balls. Place on a lined tray and pop in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Place the puddings onto a wire rack. Gently melt the coconut oil and Supertreats then spoon over each mini pudding to just about cover. Decorate each one with a few dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds on top.
  4. Return to the fridge and leave to set for at least 30 minutes.
  5. When ready to serve, spray with edible glitter then enjoy straight from the fridge!
