Prep Time: 30 mins | Total Time: 30 mins

Mince Pie Truffles


  • 140 g mincemeat
  • 50 g dried cranberries
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 55 g full-fat cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp confectioners’ sugar
  • 175 g all-butter shortbread biscuits (use gluten free shortbread if required – tastes just as good in these truffles)
  • 100 g milk chocolate, melted

Chocolate coating:

  • 200 g milk or dark chocolate, melted
  • Gold edible glitter
  • Gold sprinkles


  1. Place the mincemeat, cranberries, cinnamon, cream cheese and confectioners’ sugar in a medium-sized bowl and mix together until combined.
  2. Place the shortbread biscuits into a bag or bowl and crush into crumbs using the end of a rolling pin. Add the crumbs to the mincemeat mixture, along with the melted milk chocolate and stir to combine.
  3. Cover the bowl with clingfilm and place in the fridge to firm up for at least an hour (up to a day).
  4. Take the mixture out of the fridge. Line a plate or tray with baking parchment. Scoop out heaped teaspoons of the mix, place in your hand and roll into a ball. Place on the parchment (the mix will be a little sticky, but should hold its shape). Repeat until all of the mixture is used up. Place back into the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.
  5. After 30 minutes, take the mincemeat balls out of the fridge. Line a new plate or tray with fresh parchment paper. Rest one of the balls on a fork and dip into the melted chocolate. Allow the excess chocolate to drip off, then transfer the ball onto the fresh parchment paper by gently sliding off the fork using a teaspoon. Repeat until all the balls are covered in chocolate.
  6. Decorate the truffles with edible glitter and sprinkles. Allow to set at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before serving.
