When short on time then you can whip up this quick Chocolate Surprise Dessert.

I had to come up with a quick dessert to take with us as we visited dear friends on Friday evening after work.  I did not have time to go to the shops to get what I actually intended to prepare, so had to dig in the pantry and found some ingredients and came up with this quick and easy treat.

When in a rush and you need something to take along to friends, try out this quick surprise chocolate treat


Units Scale
  • Tennis biscuits (or lady fingers or any biscuit)
  • 1 tin caramel
  • 170g box chocolate Jell-O, Cook & Serve
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 cup pomegranate Craisins
  • 1 cup Hershey’s Chipits


  1. Pack the biscuits out as a base in a glass dish (I used them 3 x 3)
  2. Whip up the caramel, and spread it over the biscuits
  3. In a large microwave container, blend the milk and the Jell-O with a hand whisk.
  4. Cook at high for 2 minutes, whisk, and blend
  5. Repeat this 3 more times, thus 8 minutes in total.
  6. After every 2 minutes of cooking time, mix and blend well to prevent lumps
  7. After 8 minutes, add the craisins.
  8. Cook for 1 minute, blend and add the Hershey’s Chipits.
  9. Blend in but no need to have all the Hershey’s Chipits melted.
  10. Pour and spread evenly over the caramel.
  11. Decorate as desired.
  12. Leave to set in the fridge.
  13. Cut into blocks and when serving top with some whipped cream and enjoy.
  14. Due to limited time, this is a very quick and not fancy decorated treat, but it tasted awesome
