Traditional recipe

Chocolate Biscuit pudding is dish that was introduced to Sri Lanka during the British Colonial era. The dish has spread to many other countries including South Africa with the migration of South Indians.

To make up the pudding, layers of a prepared chocolate pudding/icing mixture are alternated in a serving dish with layers of Marie biscuits dipped in warm milk. Usually, the pudding will consist of five to seven layers in total. This pudding does not require any heating, baking, or steaming.


Brandy or rum is sometimes added to the chocolate mixture to create a slightly alcoholic version of the dessert.
