  4. Add the cream, peppermint extract and sweetened condensed milk to a large mixing bowl and use a hand mixer or stand mixer (with whisk attachment) to whip cream to stiff peaks.

Add cocoa powder to the second bowls and gently fold in. Add frozen raspberries to the 3rd and gently fold in. Keep the fourth bowl plain white.
  6. Add red cream to a piping or zip lock bag. Add plain white to another piping bag.
  7. Line a Christmas pudding tin with plastic wrap. Pipe lines of red and white cream around the inside of the tin and mix until it’s completely covered. Fill with raspberry cream, then pipe some extra red and white. The finish off with the chocolate cream.. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze overnight.
  8. To finish off drizzle chocolate sauce over the top and top with candy.
