This chocolate pudding is verry popular in spain (known as tarta de galletas) but i have given this recipe my very own twist. My chocolate cream is soo good you can freeze it and it will taste like ice cream! You can also use it for pie fillings and cheese cake. I made it “eggless” for all my vegetarian followers. Its easy to make and delicious tho its a bit heavy on the calories. You can also flavor it with rum or baileys….
1 packet of marie (or similar) biscuits… say 200 grams or more
300 grams of cream cheese, at room temperature
250 ml of whipping cream, chilled
350 grams of condensed milk (or more if you like it sweeter)
200 grams of bitter chocolate
a dash of milk
and liquer of your choice
a few drops of vanilla esence
a small sprinkle of cinnamon powder
mix the cream cheese with the vanilla essence, cinnamon and the condensed milk. Taste it..it should be verry sweet. Beat the chilled cream till its nice and frothy and then add it to the cream cheese mixture CAREFULLY. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler with a dash of milk and when its a little cooled at it to the cream mixture. Add the liquer of your choice if you want. Line a dish with a layer of biscuits and then spread this chocolate cream over it and go on layering till you finish up both the biscuits and the cream ending with a layer of cream. Cover and refrigerate for a few hours. Cut it up and eat it…its just too delicious!!
NITU DIDI VARIATIONS: you can add some powdered nuts to the mixture. You can avoid the liquer and flavor it with some coffee for a mocha pudding. For those who dont like chocolate you can omit it totally and flavour it the way you like it
