Hot Chocolate Pudding

Reminiscent of times gone by when my Mum used to make this for us as children. Its quick,easy and cheap so fits in with our ethos. Using store cupboard basics it can be whisked up in no time and added to as you prefer. This is a great one for the children to make and decorate as their imagination dictates, adding marshmallows, grated chocolate, smarties, sprinkles or chopped nuts as I have. Why not have a try and let us know how you got on in the comments below. We love to hear your feedback x
