For a festive ice-cream Christmas pudding, chop rum balls into four pieces and stir through softened ice-cream with some extra rum. Place into a pudding bowl lined with cling film, cover and freeze until set. Once set this can be turned out on a plate for an alternative to the traditional Christmas pudding.
