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


  • 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.
