Chocolate Concrete Pudding Recipe

Old Fashioned School Dinner Chocolate Crunch

Good old Chocolate Concrete Pudding Recipe also known as chocolate crunch or tiffin was a popular school pudding in the 1970's.

I've seen a number of variations to this chocolate pudding recipe. Some recipes use egg, some exclude the broken biscuits/cookies. As the name suggests the baked result should set to be extremely hard although many people report that the chocolate concrete turns out differently every time - somtimes hard and sometimes softer. It's popular to serve it with custard as this softens it up a bit and seems to reminds people of their school dinners. Makes about 24 chocolate concrete blocks.
