This is a spooktacularly easy recipe for Halloween, and one that kids love to get involved with making (not least because it involves bashing biscuits). While it gets zero points for nutritional value, it's definitely a crowd-pleaser. This recipe made three sundae glass-size servings which proved to be too much for our kids; this is a rich and sweet pudding, so we'd recommend serving at least four with these quantities, and use relatively small glasses/dishes. Feel free to adapt as you like, by swapping the biscuits or sweets for whatever will make your little horrors happy!
- A packet of Oreos (you may not need them all)
- 300ml double cream
- 50g milk or dark chocolate, broken into pieces
- Jelly worms/snakes/caterpillars to decorate
1. In a large bowl, bash up most of a packet of Oreos into fine breadcrumbs (we use the end of a rolling pin to do this).
2. Melt the chocolate according to your microwave instructions (or do it carefully on the hob by melting the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of boiling water, not allowing the bowl o touch the water). Allow to cool.
3. Whip the cream until relatively stiff, then fold in the chocolate so that the cream turns a soil brown colour.
4. Put a tablespoon or two of cream into each dish, sprinkle with a table spoon of the biscuit crumbs, then top with another spoonful of cream and a generous sprinkling of crumbs on top. Arrange your worms/snakes on the 'soil' and dig in!
