Chocolate Cornflake Christmas Puddings



Hey Whisperers,

Remember when you were little and you stood in line in the dinner hall at school with your sights set on those perfect chocolate cornflake hedgehogs? Yeah me too. My mom works in a school and a few weeks ago she was talking about how all of the desserts have changed and all i could think about was those perfectly chocolate pieces of heaven..so i found a recipe for them.

I've tried them out a few times and I've finally changed the recipe to make them taste as amazing as they used to. Because it is blogmas i thought i would add a Christmas twist to them but obviously you can skip the extra steps and keep them plain too! So here's my recipe for chocolate cornflake Christmas puddings. 


❄ What You'll Need ❄

200g Golden Syrup
100g Margarine 
30g Cocoa Powder
100g Cornflakes
130g White Chocolate
Holly and Berry Sprinkles

Saucepan
Wooden Spoon
Silicone Spatula
Metal Spoon
Ice cream Scoop
Mixing Bowl
Small Glass Bowl


🎅Lets Bake🎅


First things first, measure out your golden syrup, margarine and cocoa powder. Once you've measured them all out melt butter and golden syrup in a saucepan until they are fully combined. One they are fully combined mix in your cocoa powder and mix well.


Measure out your cornflakes while your mixture cools. Once your mixture has cooled a little pour it over your cornflakes and mix well. At this point i usually add extra cornflakes as the mixture is quite runny. 


Once your cornflakes are completely covered pack them into an ice cream scoop using a spoon pressing down so they're completely packed in. Then turn your scoop over and allow the mixture to fall onto the tray. Once all of your domes have been made put them in the fridge to set.


While your domes are in the fridge melt your white chocolate in the microwave in 30 second increments. Once your chocolate is melted bring your domes out of the fridge and drizzle your chocolate on top of your domes to make them look like little Christmas puddings. Then add your holly and berry sprinkles on top, using two leaves and two berries per pudding. Put these back in the fridge to completely harden,


Once your puddings have completely hardened transfer them to a plate and serve. You can eat these alone or cover them in a layer of hot custard (believe me it sounds strange but it tastes incredible). 


So that was my quick and easy chocolate cornflake Christmas pudding recipe! I hope you've enjoyed this post!
