Super Simple Pudding

Yesterday evening I wanted to make some desert and not just eat plain ice cream, my taste buds were tickling me to their best I began my search in the kitchen for something that would satisfy them!
I found was some oranges & apples! And to my delight I made a pudding out of it in no time...thanks to my thinking tongue!!!lolzz...
Its a super simple the name!
Recipe serves 2

1 Apple
1 Orange
¾ cup cold milk
10 to 12 Britania mariegold biscuits (You may use any other, but ensure they arent essenced or too sweet)
1 tbspn. Honey
1 tspn Sugar
Chocolate for decoration
Peel the apple skin and chop it into small pieces, same with the orange. Marinate the chopped fruits with honey and sugar for about 15 to 20 minutes. The apples dont turn dark due to honey, thats a discovery I made yesterday! They remain fresh and juicy even the next day!
Crush about 7 to 8 biscuits with your hand. Now, take a bowl suitable for setting your pudding. Place the remaining biscuits at the bottom in the bowl, on it spread the marinated fruits, top it with the layer of the crushed biscuits. Decorate with some crushed or grated chocolate.
Pour the milk evenly on it. Allow it to set in a freezer for about an hour and your pudding is ready! Its too simple to be delicious...isnt it? But you got to try it friends!
You may savour it with a vanilla ice cream scoop, but without it also it tastes too soothing!
