Marie Biscuit Rum Pudding

This recipe is legendary! It is probably the most requested dessert by my friends in Chennai city. The minute I come home to visit, my mom makes several logs of it and puts them in the freezer only to see them fly out by the minute. She has to make several batches each summer.

This Chocolate Marie Biscuit Rum Pudding is decadent beyond belief but unbelievably delicious. You can always adjust the rum to taste but most of my pals really love the extra kick they get from the alcohol in the dessert.

  1. Malini, Tarsha made this for us when we went over for lunch last week. It was really good. Even Jim, who doesn’t have a sweet tooth, really liked it!
