behind the scenes
Where Chocolate Meets Mince Pies
There’s something about the first mince pie of the season – it’s a mix of excitement about the weeks ahead, along with nostalgia for Christmases gone by.
The truth is, there is nothing more synonymous with Christmas than that gorgeous mix of rich fruit, brandy and buttery, flaky pastry.
Just in case that wasn’t indulgent enough, we’ve knocked it up a gear this year by adding a little chocolate to our mincemeat in these delicious Chocolate Mince Pies.

The chocolate flavour is by no means overwhelming, it just compliments the clementine with yet another classic Christmas combination. And, let’s be honest, Christmas is never the time for holding back, so the more decadent the better, we say!
Plus, if it’s your first time making mincemeat, it could not be easier than this recipe. The replacement of suet with butter means this is automatically vegetarian, ensuring even more of your friends and family will be able to enjoy the fruits of your minimal labour!
And it’s no means by accident that we’re sharing this recipe with you today: Stir-Up Sunday! It’s the traditional day in the calendar to embrace those rich dried fruits as we mix and steam those Christmas Puddings.
So, why not extend the cooking fun? Don your Santa hat, put on that Christmas playlist, and get busy in the kitchen with these delicious chocolate mince pies!
