Dark Chocolate Halloween Pudding with meringue ghosts and fondant pumpkins on cookie dirt. It’s our favourite pudding in yet another avatar. What’s not to love about pudding that comes together with pantry essentials in next to no time! What if I told you the pudding is eggless and gluten free too? All that and more. No refined sugar, and addictive good, it’s a pudding that’s been made often at home.This oat pudding turned out to be very popular and was made several times over when I shared it on Instagram stories. Folk found it addictive, easy to make and comparatively guilt free. Then again, anything chocolate is always popular. The Dark Chocolate Cinnamon Oat Pudding from my previous post was just another version of my original recipe.The pudding was inspired by these beautiful Daniel Wellington watches I was gifted recently. The classic good looks, vintage tans and smooth finish inspired how my puddings looked. I had such a great time bringing these together! It was published in The Hindu a few days ago.The original pudding had walnuts, but this Dark Chocolate Halloween Pudding went fall flavoured with cinnamon to stay in season. I wasn’t too sure cinnamon and chocolate would pair well. Of course I was proved quite wrong. They paired beautifully. The rest of the assembling is quite simple. You can make the meringue ghosts in advance. If you’d like to go completely egg free, skip the meringue ghosts. Maybe use marshmallows, or pipe ghosts out of stiff whipping cream, using chocolate chips as eyes.
