Chocolate Scrumble

This is a delicious and really easy pud for a party. It’s loosely based on Eton mess – with the emphasis on loosely! This travels well before it’s assembled, so it works very well as a dessert to take to a party.

Recipe: Chocolate Scrumble


  • 1 quantity of chocolate sauce (see previous recipe)
  • 4 meringues (you can use broken nests)
  • 2 Waitrose Double Choc Muffins (gluten and dairy free)
  • 400 g raspberries


  1. Break up the meringues and the muffins into bitesize lumps.
  2. Wash and check over the raspberries.
  3. Layer up the ingredients in a large bowl.
  4. Start with a layer of meringue, then follow with a layer of raspberries, one of muffin chunks and a thick drizzle of chocolate sauce.
  5. Repeat until you run out of stuff.
  6. You can serve this two different ways. Either you can layer it in a glass bowl and leave it like that with the last layer of chocolate sauce; or you can give it all a gentle stir before you give it the final drizzle of sauce.

Quick Notes

I took this to a friend’s barbecue and it vanished like snow off a hedge. Everyone demolished it with most coming back for seconds and all the children for thirds. A large bowlful lasted a total of 10 minutes!
