The mega pud is based on a 100 year old family recipe with some lavish additions to make it fit for a millionaire. With sparkling gold leaf and a healthy serving of 50 year old Scotch, retailing at around £27,000, it is no ordinary dessert. And while guests would traditionally find a lucky sixpence in their pudding, the EuroMillions winners could instead uncover a rather more extravagant golden apple nestled in the centre.
On Friday 27 November the UK Millionaire Maker will create five millionaires who will also win an unforgettable EuroMillions Christmas. The prize will include a festive trip to Lapland or New York while the winners’ houses are dressed from top to toe by a team of expert decorators. Christmas shopping will be covered by a £10,000 present budget with everything right down to the stocking fillers wrapped and ready under the tree. A chef and waiter will take care of Christmas dinner and, of course, every winner will be given the recipe for their opulent Christmas pudding.
To top it all off the winners will definitely be having a White Christmas with a flurry of real snow delivered to their houses on Christmas Eve.
Mark Greenaway said, “Christmas dinner is at the heart of everyone’s festive celebrations so what better way to round off your first as a millionaire than with the ultimate Christmas pudding. I wanted to create a dish that embraced tradition but with some really special millionaire twists.
“We took some of the finest ingredients like 50 year old Scotch Whisky, added plenty of festive sparkle and hid a special surprise in the middle. At least if I don’t win I can console myself with a helping!”
A National Lottery spokesperson said, “The festive season is always magical but imagine your dream Christmas right down to the presents under the tree and a dusting of snow in the garden. It is going to be a very merry Christmas and an even happier new year for five lucky players.”
