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.

A comfort food recipe to beat all others, chocolate dumplings cooked in their own chocolate sauce in your slow cooker, just what you need on a snow day this winter
- 75 g vegetable suet
- 115 g self-raising flour
- 35 g cocoa powder
- 50 g caster sugar
- 150 ml water
- 400 ml boiling hot water from the kettle
- 130 g light brown sugar
- 70 g dark muscovado sugar
- 20 g cocoa powder
Make the sauce first by mixing the hot water with the sugar and cocoa powder. Pour into the slow cooker bowl.
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.
To make the dumplings, place all the dry ingredients in a bowl, then add the water and mix with a spoon.
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).
Replace the lid and cook the dumplings in on high for 1 to 1.5 hours until a skewer comes out clean.
Serve the dumplings and drizzle over the chocolate sauce.
