packages chocolate pudding
1 envelope unflavored gelatine
1 quart milk
1 ounce square unsweetened chocolate
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
10 Hostess Ho-Ho's
In a large saucepan, thoroughly combine pudding mix and gelatine. Stir in milk
until smooth, add chocolate.
Bring to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly until
chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
Stir in vanilla extract. Pour into a bowl; refrigerate
covered until cold, about 1 hour.
In a small bowl, beat 1 cup cream until stiff. Beat in 1/4 cup confectioners'
sugar until blended; chill.
Cut each chocolate roll crosswise into 4 slices. Cover slices
with a damp paper towel.
To assemble, use scraper and fold whipped cream into pudding mixture. Pour 1 1/2
cups chocolate cream layer to top, with rows of chocolate roll slices. Then top
with the remaining chocolate cream. Refrigerate, covered until well chilled,
several hours or overnight.
Before serving, beat remaining 1 cup cream with remaining confectioners' sugar.
Decorate the top with swirls of cream.
