  1. Pit the dates and chop roughly.                            ​

  2. Put them in a food processor with all the other ingredients and blend them ​all together until they look ​​like sticky breadcrumbs and will stick together between your fingers

  3. Roll the mix into approximately 20 balls.

  4. Put them on a baking tray and freeze them for an hour to set.

  5. Decorate to look like mini Xmas puddings, place in an airtight container in the fridge.
