Remember to ask a Grown-up for help.
What to do:
Before cooking, wash your hands and put an apron on. Weigh and measure all the ingredients. There should be enough for four servings using the quantities shown.
Put a layer of sponge fingers into the bottom of the small trifle bowl and pour half of the drinking chocolate mix on top.
Arrange 8 mandarin segments on top of the sponge fingers.
Put the cream cheese in the mixing bowl and whisk up till smooth. Now add the yoghurt and the vanilla extract and whisk again.
Spoon half of the creamy cheesy mix into the small dish, hiding the mandarins and sponge fingers. Now put another layer of all the ingredients. Start with the sponge fingers. Then some chocolate drink and the remaining mandarins. Finally the layer of cheesy mix, just like you did before.
Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of instant hot chocolate powder on the top, cover and place in the fridge for about an hour.
Once the Chocolate and Mandarin Pudding has set you can eat it!
Serving suggestion: serve the four portions with some of the left-over tinned mandarins. We do not recommend you freeze this dish.
