Home made Chocolate

Flashback five years. Life was much simpler because the choices were limited.

Breakfast : Only cornflakes

Lunch  : Rice with Sambar and dry vegetable side dish

Dinner : Same as lunch

Fast forward to now. This morning,

Me to Hubby : ‘Idli, dosa or bread for break fast?’

Hubby : ‘Hmm…Idli….or Dosa…..or bread. Anything is fine’

Life is still fine even though the choices are more :).

Dedicating this chocolate to the bitter sweet, but thoroughly enjoyable moments of life.

I found this recipe in My Diverse Kitchen. All the ingredients were readily available. I doubled the  quantity and made these in a jiffy. The real trial was the waiting time. They tasted like dark chocolate to me and I loved them. Like Aparna says, try this with an open mind and you will be pleasantly surprised.

Note: Keep in mind that they taste are a bit like dark bitter chocolate. I love it though :)!

Ingredients:

  • Drinking Chocolate                   :          4 tbsp
  • Powdered Sugar                         :          4 tbsp
  • Cocoa                                              :          2 tbsp
  • Milk Powder                                 :          2 tbsp
  • Lemon Juice                                :           1 tsp
  • Water                                              :           as required

Method:

  1. Sift the dry ingredients twice together to remove lumps.
  2. Add the lemon juice and mix thoroughly with a spoon or a fork.
  3. Add water in teaspoonfuls, and mix until you get a crumbly mix.
  4. Kneed with your hands to get a slightly stiff dough. The dough can be refrigerated at this point to be used later.
  5. Grease the chocolate molds with oil or butter and fill it with the chocolate dough.
  6. Let it dry overnight, don’t refrigerate. Take the chocolates off the molds the next day and let it dry for another 4-5 hours.
  7. Wrap and gift or eat and enjoy!
  8. The above quantity gave me six reasonably big chocolate pieces.
