Method

  1. Melt the dark chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water. (Do not let the base of the bowl touch the water.)

  2. Crumble the fruit cake and Madeira cake into a bowl, then stir in the melted chocolate, desiccated coconut and hazelnuts until well combined.

  3. Roll golf-ball-sized pieces of the mixture into balls. Stick a lollipop stick into each ball and set aside in the fridge for 20–30 minutes, or until firm.

  4. Meanwhile, melt the white chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water. (Do not let the base of the bowl touch the water.) Stir in the food colouring.

  5. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Sprinkle the sugar sprinkles onto a plate.

  6. Remove the balls from the fridge, dip them into the chocolate, then coat in the sugar sprinkles and place onto the baking tray. Set aside in the fridge for 20–30 minutes, or until the chocolate has set.
