If I'm being honest, we don't actually eat a whole lot of dessert in our house. Sometimes we have ice cream after Sadie goes to bed (mean parents haha) but more often than not we are boring.
But there is something about the combination of the cooler weather and being 30 weeks pregnant that has me craving ALL the comforts of chocolate before I go to bed!
And I figure, what better time to be indulging in these delights?! I mean, it's all in the name of recipe testing for you guys - you're welcome!
This chocolate self saucing pudding comes together in no time making it perfect for both mid week treats and as an impressive dessert for guests.
It serves about 6 people but if there are only 2 of you, it actually keeps in the fridge and reheats really nicely.
Top it with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream, put your comfy pants on and enjoy every bite!
