Christmas Recipe of the Week: Chocolate Biscuit Cake Pudding

I love Christmas and I love chocolate so last year I came up with something that combined the two while keeping to a traditional festive theme – the Christmas pudding.

A lot of people don’t like Christmas pudding but this is one with a twist. A chocolate biscuit cake, presented like a pudding.

For the season that’s in it I decided to make it the same way, but just to add the mixture into a bowl to make it into a pudding shape.

This recipe is very easy and very simple to make. But it’s so delicious.


200g Dark Chocolate

110g Butter

150g Rich Tea Biscuits

150g Digestive Biscuits

2 1/2 Tablespoons Golden Syrup

200g Milk Chocolate

  • Melt the butter, golden syrup and dark chocolate in a saucepan over a low heat.
  • Crush the biscuits together.
  • When the chocolate mixture has melted, add to the biscuits and mix well. (You add some chopped up Malteasers or Crunchies to this).
  • Line a small mixing bowl with clingfilm and add the biscuit mixture. Leave to set in the fridge for a few hours.
  • When set, lift it out of the bowl and remove cling film.
  • Turn upside down, and pour over melted milk chocolate.
Extra Tip
  • To mix things up a bit, you can also use ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives and rich tea biscuits.
  • Add chopped nuts and some dried fruit.
