Slow Cooker Chocolate Caramel Puddings are the perfect midwinter treat, and these little puddings have a secret. A special melting chocolate caramel treat inside that makes them even more delicious.
A melting centre
Inside each of the little Chocolate Caramel Puddings, there is a piece of caramel-filled chocolate bar. Or you can use chocolate caramel sweets such as rolos. As the puddings cook the chocolate and caramel melt inside, what a decadent treat!
Why use a slow cooker to cook the chocolate caramel puddings?
I use my Slow Cooker for steamed puddings because it gently bubbles away and I can go and do other things. I know I can leave it to do its thing without worrying about the pan boiling dry.
Can I still make Chocolate Caramel Puddings without a slow cooker?
You can steam the puddings in a saucepan with a saucer in the bottom. Or, if you have a steamer then use that. Just keep checking the pan so that it doesn’t boil dry.
How do I serve the Slow Cooker Chocolate Caramel Puddings?
Serve the Chocolate Caramel Puddings with Chocolate Caramel Sauce. If that is too rich then serve with plain pouring cream, ice cream, or custard.
What is Chocolate Caramel Cream?
It is easy to make the Chocolate Caramel Cream, just gently melt the chocolate caramels in the cream and serve.
