As I was searching for a pudding for my 21st dinner party, I was struggling. Like really struggling. So what does a girl do when she can’t decide? Makes 3 puddings… for 4 people!
I saw the original recipe on one of those great Waitrose recipe cards (sorry, I can’t take credit for this one!) and decided I had to share it with you!
150g plain flour
25g cocoa powder
60g light brown muscovado sugar
70g golden syrup
50g dark/milk chocolate
1 tbsp freeze dried stawberries
Some berries to serve
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius, and line a baking sheet with baking parchment.
Put the flour, cocoa powder, butter and sugar in a blender until they’re well blended.
And the syrup and blitz again until you have a nice dough.
The original calls for a heart shaped cutter for Valentine’s Day, but I was feeling in more of a star mood!
Roll the dough out until it’s fairly thin and then cut 24 shapes. You might have to get creative with your angles and re-use your end-y bits but you can make it! If it starts getting difficult to work with, just pop the dough back in the fridge for 15 or so minutes.
Pop them on the baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
Carefully (as they will break!) put 12 biscuits aside to cool. Place half a marshmallow, if you’re using big ones, or 3/4 little ones onto each of the remaining 12 biscuits and pop them back in the oven for a minute or so until your marshmallows have melted.
Take them out and sandwich the biscuits together. The marshmallow might try and run away so have a knife at the ready to poke it back in!
Melt the chocolate in the microwave or over a boiling pan of water and then carefully dollop a teaspoon on top of each biscuit. Then sprinkle the freeze dried strawbs on top and serve!
Because I was making Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting and Apple Pie I didn’t go for the extra chocolate but I bet it would have been good!
