Diwali Special: Chocolate Coconut Ladoos
Turn your kitchen into a perky space this Diwali. Get your family together to make these easy peasy and oh-so-yummy laddoos or sweet balls. Try it today!
Makes 10 balls
Time: 30 minutes (including prep time)
Condensed milk, 100 grams
Desiccated coconut, 1/2 cup (unsweetened)
Dark chocolate, 25 grams
- Melt the dark chocolate using the double boiling method* and add the desiccated coconut to the melted chocolate. Mix well.
- Now ask your child to make round balls out of the mixture. Show him/her how it is to be done. Sit back and watch the fun!
- Garnish the balls with desiccated coconut (optional)
Your easy peasy choco coco balls are ready - and the little chefs will be the first to finish them! I suggest making a larger quantity (change the ingredient portions accordingly) and store in the refrigerator.
You can also pack them in a transparent paper (potli-style) and tie up with a bright ribbon – a ‘sweet’ gift from your child to his friends.
*Double boiling method: Heat water in a pan and place a bowl full of chocolates on top. Chocolate should slowly start melting. When half of the chocolate melts, turn off the gas but keep stirring till the rest of the chocolate melts. Take the bowl out of the water.
Things to keep in mind:
- Always use fine desiccated coconut – that makes it easy for your child to roll into balls.
- You can use normal chocolate too, only it makes the balls a lot sweeter and less chocolatey!
- Add more desiccated coconut if the mixture is not rolling into balls easily.
- If you have a microwave, simply melt the chocolate in the microwave. No need for double boiling method.
