Introduction: 3-Ingredients Milo Spread for Easy Chocolate Malt Bread Pudding

About: Happy Sagi~

As we know, cocoa is an important ingredient for a lot of our favorite sweet-tooth-satisfying desserts. One of my favorite treats is Dark Chocolate Bread Pudding. What can I use instead of cocoa powder? Actually, I am pretty much crazy for anything chocolate, so I thought it would be fun to make a special dessert with this substitution in mind.

Can we use Milo spread in place of chocolate spread?

The answer is YES, we can enjoy Milo spread made with butter, honey, and Milo powder on toast, fresh fruit or other dessert. In this step-by-step tutorial, I will show you what to do if you don't have cocoa powder or baking chocolate. From how to make Milo spread, to how to make the easiest and best Chocolate Malt Bread Pudding. This is a fun recipe because we can discover inventive ways to use up leftover bread and the Milo spread makes it different from traditional bread pudding.

At the end of this tutorial, you will be able to start baking from scratch. The Chocolate Malt Bread Pudding made with Milo spread is a rich, comforting dessert. Keep in mind though that a recipe made with Chocolate Malt Powder (such as Milo which is a combination of malt, cocoa, sugar, milk powder and others) will be less chocolate taste.
