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
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.
- 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.
