Chocolate Christmas Pud

Christmas is just such a wonderful time of year. Christmas presents, Christmas trees and just so much Christmas food. It really is the one time of year that you can eat and eat and boast about all the obscene amounts of fantastic food you've eaten with absolutely no judgement. 

I absolutely adore Christmas pudding and I can never understand why people don't like it. Daddy and I are the only ones in the family who eat it, so we act like actual pigs on Christmas day and normally devour the whole thing between the two of us. 

For all you anti Christmas pudders out there who prefer a chocolate roulade or a handful of satsuma's, this chocolate Christmas pud is the thing for you. A perfect alternative to the traditional Christmas pud but just the answer to all those chocolate lovers out there too.

Here's what you need;

200g box of Rice Crispies
500g Maltesers
250g Butter
300g Dark/Milk Chocolate
200g White Chocolate
Squeeze of golden syrup
Large tablespoon of cocoa powder
2 Large tablespoons of icing sugar

Melt the butter completely and add the cocoa powder.

Stir in the icing sugar and add a generous squeeze of golden syrup.

Stir it all up until it goes beautifully smooth.

Pour in the rice crispies.

Stir it all up so the rice crispies are coated.

Next job is to find your best Christmas pudding shaped bowl, and cover it with a lining of cling film.

Pour all of the mixture into the bowl making sure it is nice and compact in the bowl.
Put into the fridge to cool for about 10 minutes.

It should come out looking like this.

Next stop is to melt the chocolate for the topping. You can do this in the microwave but its hard to not burn the chocolate that way. I prefer to use a bain-marie.

Once the chocolate has melted add another squeeze of golden syrup.
Now for the fun bit.

Starting at the top, cover you rice crispie cake in the chocolate mixture so that you can stick all the malteasers on. Work in a spiral motion from the centre for the best effect as it needs to be completed covered for the best result.

To decorate your cake. Melt the white chocolate and drizzle it onto the centre of the cake to look like icing.

You can even add some holly decoration if you're feeling creative.

Just look at that. 
A Christmas pudding for all you chocolate lovers out there.
Serve it up with a dollop of cream or a big scoop or ice cream.

Go on have a slice!

Only a week till Christmas, getting excited!
