CRAVING a sweet treat? I recently learnt that, as a child, Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney devoured hot Yorkshire puddings with golden syrup on top for dessert – who knew?

Here is my pick of two-ingredient desserts to get you in a pud mood . . . 

COOKIE UP A STORM: I love Oreos and white chocolate — so mixing them suits me. To make Oreo and white chocolate blocks, you need two packs of white chocolate and a pack of Oreos, £1 at Ocado.

Make this cheaper by switching to Cookies ‘N’ Cream Biscuits, 35p at Aldi. Break half the cookies into coarse pieces. In a mixing bowl, melt one pack of white chocolate and fold in cookie pieces.

Pour the mixture into a cold, waxed paper-lined pan. Do this again in a second pan with the other half of the ingredients. Refrigerate until solid. Remove and cut into small blocks.

SAVING: 65p on cookies

ROAST UNLIKELY: For the McCartney-inspired pudding, I’m a fan of Aunt Bessie’s Glorious Golden Yorkshire Puddings, £1.35 for ten at Asda. But Asda Smart Price Yorkshire Puddings, 50p for 15, are just as tasty.

Pop in the oven until cooked and enjoy with golden syrup — a tube is £1 at

SAVING: 85p + five more puddings

JELL OF A COMBO: Jelly and squirty cream is a quick sugar hit. I like Hartley’s Strawberry Jelly, 55p at Morrisons — this makes four servings and is cheaper than ready-made pots (at 55p each).

For the cream, President UHT Real Dairy Aerosol Cream is down to £1.50 at Ocado, usually £2. Yum.

SAVING: 50p on cream

PASTA BE DONE: Who doesn’t love pasta? How about Nutella? A bowl of the two together could be the pudding of your dreams. Cook the pasta, leave to cool for five minutes.

Then add a generous helping of Nutella, £2 when using a Clubcard at Tesco, usually £2.90, and use tongs to stir it all together. Epic. You can add extra nuts, if you have them.

TESCO says it will cover the VAT on sun protection products by permanently reducing the price of items in its own-label range, Tesco Soleil, by 20 per cent.

Research from the retailer shows that 19million adults don’t wear sunscreen even when it’s sunny, with cost proving a major barrier for the nation staying safe in the sun.
