The smell of these Christmas pudding brownies alone is enough to sell them to you, let alone the taste.
It’s what I can imagine Christmas to taste like if it was edible. The rich spices of the Christmas pudding paired with the ultra chocolatey goodness of a brownie – is just heavenly. Need I say more…
So, if these brownies have caught your eye and your wanting to demolish them asap, you know the drill. Keep on scrolling below and you’ll find my recipe for them.

Cook Time: 25-30 Minutes
Chill Time: 1-2 Hours
Overall Time: 2+ Hours
Ingredients You Need For Christmas Pudding Brownies:
- 200g Of 70% Cocoa Dark Chocolate
- 200g Of Unsalted Butter
- 3 Large Eggs
- 275g Of Caster Sugar
- 100g Of Plain Flour
- 50g Of Cocoa Powder
- 300g Of Milk Chocolate Chips
- 400g Of Christmas Pudding, Crumbled
How To Make The Christmas Pudding Brownies:
- Firstly, gather together your equipment and ingredients, line 2x 8inch brownie tins with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 180C / 160C Fan / Gas Mark 5.
- Secondly, in a microwavable bowl, add both the 200g of dark chocolate and 200g of unsalted butter. Place the bowl into the microwave and in 20 second blasts, blast the butter/chocolate until fully melted.
- When both the ingredients have melted, remove from the microwave and place to one side to cool to room temperature.
- Now, in a large bowl, using an electric whisk, whisk together the 3 large eggs with the 275g of caster sugar for a few minutes, until the colour has turned pale, the mixture is mousse like and the volume has doubled in size (TIP: you will know it’s done when you lift the whisk up out from the mixture and it should leave a trail for a couple of seconds, before disappearing).
- Once whisked, pour the melted chocolate/butter mixture over the eggs and very carefully fold together (TIP: being careful and patient is crucial at this stage because you don’t want to knock the air out of the mixture).
- When combined, sift in the 100g of plain flour and 50g of cocoa powder and carefully fold into the mixture.
- Carefully fold in the 300g of milk chocolate chips and 350g of crumbled Christmas pudding.
- Divide the brownie mixture between the two brownie tins (TIP: making sure to not over fill the tins otherwise the brownie will cook unevenly).
- Sprinkle the remaining 50g of crumbled christmas pudding over the top of the brownies. Using a spoon, push the pudding lightly into the brownie mixture.
- Place the brownie tins into the oven and cook for 25-30 minutes, until theres a slight wobble in the centre of the tin and a skewer place into the brownies comes out mostly clean.
- Once baked, remove the brownies from the oven and allow to cool to room temperature in the tin before placing into the fridge to chill for 1-2 hours.
- Finally, once chilled, remove from the fridge, carefully remove from the brownie tin and cut your brownie into 18 squares. Then, serve.
