Slow Cooker Chocolate Dumplings

Slow Cooker Chocolate Dumplings are very naughty but could be ideal for a sweet chocolate treat for your Valentine! Or if not sophisticated enough for that, it would be the perfect comfort food for a cold winter’s day.

Slow Cooker Chocolate Dumplings

Chocolate dumplings, cooked in a rich and delicious chocolate sauce in the slow cooker! Rich, fudgy and chocolatey! It is certainly not for you if you are on a health kick, but is ideal to be enjoyed as an occasional treat.

We demolished these after a Sunday roast, the family all seemed to enjoy this! I’ll make them again when I have a chocolate craving I think.

Recipe:

Chocolate dumplings:

  • 75 g vegetable suet
  • 115 g self-raising flour
  • 35 g cocoa powder
  • 50 g caster sugar
  • 150 ml water

Chocolate sauce:

  • 400 ml boiling hot water from the kettle
  • 130 g light brown sugar
  • 70 g dark muscovado sugar
  • 20 g cocoa powder

Method:

1. Make the sauce first by mixing the hot water with the sugar and cocoa powder. Pour into the slow cooker bowl.
2. Turn the slow cooker on high, replace the lid, and cook the sauce for 1 to 1.5 hours until hot and starting to thicken.
3. To make the dumplings, place all the dry ingredients in a bowl, then add the water and mix with a spoon.
4. Wet your hands and then form small balls from the dumpling mixture and drop them into the sauce. The mixture makes 12-14 small dumplings (remember they will grow as they cook).
5. Replace the lid and cook the dumplings in on high for 1 to 1.5 hours until a skewer comes out clean.
6. Serve the dumplings and drizzle over the chocolate sauce.

Enjoy! Go for a very long run afterwards…

Didn’t work for me – the dumpling mixture is too runny to make balls

Vegetable suet is fairly new on the market. Proper suet is beef suet made from the hard fat of cows. I’ve used ordinary suet for all sorts of things, sweet & savoury all my cooking life. I’ve never brought vegetable suet which is a vegetarian version of beef suet and made from palm oil combined with rice flour. Treacle pudding, Sussex pond pudding, bread pudding, jam pudding etc are all made from beef suet and have been since the recipes were invented. Anything that has suet in the recipe is for beef suet, unless you are a vegetarian, then vegetable… Read more »
