Slow Cooker Chocolate Caramel Puddings

Slow Cooker Chocolate Caramel Puddings with Chocolate Caramel Cream

Slow Cooker Chocolate Caramel Puddings are the perfect midwinter treat, and these little puddings have a secret, a special treat inside that makes them even more delicious. Inside each of the  little Chocolate Caramel Puddings  there is a piece of caramel filled chocolate bar, or you can use chocolate caramel sweets.  As the puddings cook the chocolate and caramel melt inside, what a decadent treat!  

Slow Cooker Chocolate Caramel Puddings a perfect midwinter treat 

You could steam the puddings in a saucepan with a saucer in the bottom or, if you have a steamer then use that, but the Slow Cooker works really well as it gently bubbles away and you can go away and leave it to do it’s thing without worrying about the pan boiling dry.  The Chocolate Caramel Cream couldn’t be simpler to make and is ideal to serve with the Chocolate Caramel Puddings, you could also serve with plain pouring cream, ice cream or custard.

For the pudding
  1. 50 g butter
  2. 35 g soft brown sugar
  3. 110 g self-raising flour
  4. 1 large egg
  5. 25 g cacao or cocoa powder
  6. 4 tbsp milk
  7. pinch of salt
  8. 1 square of caramel filled chocolate bar or chocolate caramel sweet (rolo)
For the sauce
  1. 150 ml single cream
  2. 50g chocolate caramels sweets or caramel filled chocolate bar
Instructions
  1. Butter 3 x 6 oz mini pudding basins and put a circle of baking parchment in the bases of the basins.
  2. Mix all the pudding ingredients, except the chocolates, with a spoon or electric mixer
  3. Half fill the pudding basin
  4. Add the chocolate into the centre and fill the rest evenly between the basins.
  5. Cover with baking parchment and foil and tie with string.
  6. Boil a kettle and pour the boiling water into the slow cooker pot and add the puddings, the water should come about half way up the pudding basins.
  7. Put the lid on the slow cooker and cook on high for 1 1/2 hours until the pudding has risen and the centre looks firm.
  8. The puddings should slide out of their basins, but it they don't then ease round them with a blunt knife or small spatula.
To make the sauce
  1. Place the cream and chocolate caramel into a small pan and warm slowly until the sweets have melted into the cream, serve warm over the puddings..
Notes
  1. You can make the puddings in advance and reheat in the microwave for 30 seconds before serving.
  2. Double up the quantities to make enough for six or make a big pudding and steam for 2 - 2 1/2 hours.

      Thanks Lucy, it was fun styling the puds. They are very filling, I think I’ll look for smaller pudding basins!

    That looks wickedly good!. I’ve just got a new slow cooker after giving mine away a couple of years ago, so I’ll have to try some of your veggie friendly recipes.

    What a wonderful pudding! I love that it can be made in the slow cooker, I seem to be using it less and less since I got it so this may be something that I’ll make next 🙂 Thank you for sharing!
