Bingo Squares

               After a long week of flu, we're back with another easy but tasty recipe. These squares are delicious - they are chocolatey but at the same time light and fluffy. The name Bingo Squares was inspired by the subtle combination of cinnamon, orange, chocolate and vanilla and I'm sure that bingo would be the first word that comes to mind when you taste them.



1 1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup water
2 cups white flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons jam (here I used apricot jam but you could use any other jam)

Filling 1

300 gr. cookies or biscuits
2-3 cups of freshly squeezed orange juice

Filling 2 

250 gr butter or margarine
250 gr powdered sugar
4 packages of vanilla flavored instant pudding mix (I use Dr.Oetker pudding mixes)
15 tablespoons sugar
1 l water
100 gr chocolate + 50 gr for decoration


1. Mix all of the base ingredients and bake the base in a greased baking dish for 20 minutes at 390°F (200 °C). 

2. Crush the cookies and put them in some orange juice. Stir until combined. If you like smooth fillings you could also ground the cookies or put some extra orange juice. I left mine crushed as they add a bit of texture to the squares. The amount of orange juice can also vary depending on your preferences.

3. In a larger pot cook 4 packages of instant pudding mix with 15 tablespoons of sugar and 1 l water, stirring continuously.  Once the pudding starts to gently simmer, reduce the heat and cook for another minute. Remove from the heat and let it cool completely. 

4. Cream the butter with the powdered sugar and add it to the cooled pudding. 

5. Divide the second filling in two equal parts. In one of the parts add 100 gr melted chocolate.


Put the first filling on the base and continue with the vanilla flavored part of the second filling. Finish with the chocolate layer and sprinkle some chocolate shavings.

Hope you'll enjoy our recipe! 

Have a wonderful time filled with happy memories together with your loved ones. 

Merry Christmas!
