  • 1. In a food processor, combine cake, sultanas and cinnamon. Process until combined and mixture forms a soft ball.

  • 2. Roll tablespoons of mixture into balls. Flatten the base to form a bun shape. Freeze for 20 minutes.

  • 3. Meanwhile put dark chocolate melts in a microwave safe dish and microwave on high in 30 second bursts, stirring in between, until melted. Repeat with the white chocolate, in a separate dish.

  • 4. Line a tray with baking paper. Insert the tip of a fork into the base of a chilled ball. Dip into dark chocolate to coat, allowing excess to drizzle back into the bowl.

  • 5. Using another fork, carefully push the ball from the fork onto prepared tray. Repeat with remaining balls and chocolate. Chill.

  • 6. Pour white chocolate into a small resealable bag. Push chocolate into one corner and snip off tip of bag. Carefully draw crosses over each ball.

  • 7. Allow to set before placing in a gift bag or box.
