Chocolate Pudding

Chocolate Pudding

I made my kids extremely happy with this chocolate pudding and it was a win-win for everybody, since it wasn't such a big trouble for me, either. I chose to place it onto a large platter and portion it with a knife, but it can also be spooned into individual serving dishes. Either way, you will have a fine, tasty chocolate pudding with a strong chocolate flavour.

The brown sugar is meant to give a more interesting, slight caramel taste so don't hesitate to use it.


Gelatine powder
20 g
100 ml
30 g
plus 1 extra tbsp to garnish, optional
Brown sugar
100 g
600 ml
Dark chocolate
100 g

Place the saucepan over heat, bring to the boil and stir frequently - so that sugar dissolves completely.

Step 6

Place the small saucepan with the moistened gelatin over heat.

Heat well and mix until the gelatin melts. Don't simmer, or it will lose its gellyfying properties.

Step 8

I chose to place the pudding into a large shape and then cut it into portions. For this, I lined a 24x10cm loaf dish with plastic wrap.

It's easier to skip this step and just spoon the pudding into small serving glasses/bowls.
