Choco-mocha cheat’s pudding power

I didn’t know what to call this.

It’s a cheesecake without the cheese, a fudge waiting to be set, a filling for a pie, a topping for a cake.

Choco-mocha fake cheesecake, pie filling frosting pudding base isn’t catchy.

So what actually is it? (Besides being very bad for you)

397g (1 can) condensed milk
1tsp vanilla extract
1 big Tbsp of butter
75g milk chocolate, chopped
50g dark chocolate, chopped
2 tsp coffee granules
2tsp Sugar
Sprinkle of cinnamon

How do you make it?

Combine all the ingredients into a pan and heat slowly, so you don’t burn the chocolate. Keep stirring until the chocolate is completely melted. Keep it on a low heat and allow it to thicken, stirring occasionally. It takes around 10 minutes to get to this stage.

What does it taste like?
Think of it as a very chocolatey fudge with a coffee hit that intensifies when chilled.
Warm, it’s like a rich chocolate mousse. Cold and it solidifies into something more like a fudge.

What can you use it for?
I’m glad you asked.

Why not make yourself a cheesecake base (Butter, a few oats and some crushed digestives) and set in in a pan. Then add this chocolately goodness and leave it to set.

Or have it in a pie case and top with a few chopped nuts or marshmallows before you chill it? Or sprinkles.

Or parcels of pastry with this inside?

Spread it onto a cake as a thick and gloopy choco-mocha frosting.

Or leave it to set a while longer and chop it into fudge (freeze it first for ease).

Use chunks of it in a cookie.

Or a melt in the middle cooke.

Or use it to stick two biscuits together.

Heat it and use it as an ice-cream sauce, or mix it into an ice-cream.

This is why I shouldn’t be left unattended with chocolate and coffee.
