“These are the most fantastic dinner-party desserts. Get the puddings ready and into their tins, then chill. Take them out of the fridge as soon as your guests arrive, so that they return to room temperature, and, as you clear the table after the main course, just slip them into the oven for a truly fabulous chocolate treat.”
