Choclate biscuit pudding

It is so simple to prepare and the ingredients are most likely already in your pantry. The good thing is that it can be prepared a day ahead too, making it a perfect choice for entertaining guests.


  • 200g Marie biscuits, crushed (about 40 biscuits)
  • 100g (about 1/2 cup) salted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp cornflour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup custard (optional)
  • Dark chocolate squares for garnishing (optional)


  1. In a bowl, mix together the crushed biscuits and butter until soft and sand-like.
  2. Spoon half of it into the dessert glasses and press with a spoon to level it. Keep aside the remaining biscuit crumbs.
  3. In a saucepan, combine milk, sugar, cocoa powder and corn flour. Mix well until combined.
  4. Heat until thick, whisking continuously. Allow it to cool, then add in the vanilla.
  5. Add a layer of the prepared chocolate pudding to the glasses, repeat layers finishing off with biscuit crumbs.
  6. Top it with the custard or whipped cream, if desired.
  7. Refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours. Serve cold.
