Rolo Pudding

Daughter Annalise has recently been on holiday in Ireland. Being a true member of the clan EATING was very high on the to-do list. Annalise said in an e-mail that she had had Rolo Pudding whilst there. I have NEVER had a Rolo Pud so ……

First, what are Rolos. Per Wiki,  “Rolo (pronounced “Row-lo”,  is a brand of truncated cone-shaped chocolates with a caramel centre, the shape resembling that of a shallow inverted bucket or tub or a traditional lampshade. They were first manufactured in England by Mackintosh ‘s in 1937″

I hold the world record for eating a packet of Rolos.

Now for Rolo Pud:You can’t buy it in this country as far as I can tell from the ‘net. This is what it looks like:

However there are recipes ……I like the intro to this one:

“Last night I was CRAVING chocolate!  When I say craving, I mean totally hormonal, would probably kill for it, PMSing, give up my left kidney, chocolate craving!
So I made a mad dash for the freezer {where I keep my chocolate stash}
I decided to put a little spin on my “down home, comfort food, chocolate pudding recipe”
How’s a lil Chocolate Rolo Pudding sound folks?
I know…. aren’t you glad I thought of it?

Are you salivating as you wait for the recipe?

Here you are my friends,

  • 11/2 cup (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chilled mini chocolate rolo pieces
  • 1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • Whipped topping and miniature semisweet chocolate chips, optional


  • Place chocolate chips, rolo pieces and confectioners’ sugar in a blender; cover and process until  coarsely chopped.
  • In a small saucepan add milk and butter. Bring to boil over medium heat. Add to blender; cover and process until chips are melted and mixture is smooth.
  • Pour into six individual serving dishes. Chill until set. Garnish with whipped topping if desired. 


I’m off to buy Rolo at dawn tomorrow.
