This has been named Chocolate mess, perhaps because it’s not the prettiest of puddings.

What it is though, is a tribute to store cupboard ingredients and the ability to make grown men weep with joy when they eat it!

As it’s so quick to make, you don’t really need to assemble it in advance but it will keep quite happily for a couple of hours if you want to be organised and make it ahead of time.

Chocolate Mess (Recipe By Lotte Duncan):

Serves 8

Ingredients:

200g/7oz dark chocolate, broken into pieces

200g/7oz milk chocolate, broken into pieces

1kg carton readymade (county next to Cornwall!) custard

250g bag amoretti biscuits, crushed

4 tablespoons dark rum, amaretto or Tia Maria (optional)

570ml/1 pint double cream

2 milk chocolate flakes, broken up

Method:

1.) Place the dark and milk chocolate pieces in a heatproof bowl and melt it in the microwave or over a pan of simmering water.

2.) Leave to cool for 5 minutes.

3.) Warm the custard gently in a saucepan and stir in the melted chocolate and mix well.

4.) Using individual serving bowls crumble a few amoretti biscuits in the bottom of each bowl.

5.) Drizzle with a good dash alcohol.

6.) Add a layer of chocolate custard over the top.

7.) Add another layer of crushed biscuits (reserving a few for the top), more rum and then the rest of the custard.

8.) Lightly whip the cream to the same consistency as the custard.

9.) Using a large metal spoon, gently fold half the crushed chocolate flakes into the cream.

10.) Spoon this over the custard.

11.) Sprinkle with the remaining chocolate flakes and the remaining crushed amaretti biscuits.
