According to Emma and Carla of the Merrymaker Sisters, this gooey, saucy, chocolatey paleo pudding is the best thing ever and will dazzle your taste buds, and having tried their desserts before, I certainly believe them.

I have made their salted caramel chocolate tart before (with HUGE success!), so I was really excited to try this recipe when I got a copy of their eBook Get Merry: A VERY Healthy CookbookIt’s such a lovely, delicious cookbook and the girls’ bubbly personality and laid-back approach shines through the 220+ pages covering gluten-free, grain-free and paleo recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner, including their famous smoothies and desserts.

  1. Very good for a paleo recipe. I used extra light olive oil instead of coconut oil and it worked fine. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. This is DELICIOUS!! I have made it so many times, it’s a firm family favourite. Highly, highly recommend making it 😋

  3. Does 2 tbsp cup of the coconut oil mean 1cup and 2tbspn of coconut oil? Just wanting to know before I make it.. Thank you
