Christmess Pudding

In a previous post, I extolled the virtues (briefly) of the one tradition our family has established at Christmas time: Christmess Pudding.

Here’s how it goes:

  • Every person coming to your party brings up to three pudding items of their choice.
  • All items are dumped unceremoniously (or ceremoniously, if you like), into a big bowl. (In some cases, chopping may be required. Also, use your discernment. Things like meringues are sometimes best added just before serving – that’s up to you really. It’s a fun dish to experiment with).
  • Stir well.
  • If the dessert contains ice cream, freeze until serving. (In fact, it’s usually nice to freeze it anyway).
Caramel Treat. Essential to Christmess Pudding. And life as we know it.

This year (2011), our Christmess Pudding will contain (among others):

  • Oreos
  • Ginger biscuits
  • Rollo ice  cream
  • Meringues
  • Fudge
  • Caramel Treat
  • Peppermint Crisp Chocolate

Hmm …. resistance begins to appear somewhat futile.
