Chocolates are loved by both kids and adults. There is nothing better than homemade chocolates.
Christmas is just two days away. Kids are bursting with excitement. Winter holidays are about to start. If you still have not decided what to make on Christmas then I have perfect recipe for you.
Made with easily available ingredients at home you can add hundreds of variation to this basic recipe to ger different flavor. These hardly take any time to make.
THis is my husband’s recipe. he is the one who generally makes Chocolates at home. I have made some slight changes to the recipe.
Homemade chocolates make the best gift believe me. If you want to gift me something this Christmas season I would strongly recommend chocolates (I hope hubby is reading this ;-))
So wrap them beautifully and make someones day 🙂
How to make Homemade Chocolates
Preparation time: 2 minutes
cooking time: 10 minutes
setting time: 2 hours in freezer
1 cup butter
1/2 cup drinking chocolate + 1/2 cup Cocoa ( Axat uses only Cocoa. I did not have enough at home so I added half drinking chocolate)
1 tsp Vanilla essence
To make sugar syrup:
1 cup sugar
¾ cup water
2 tbsp Roasted Nuts of your choice cut into small pieces
To make Homemade Chocolates
Add sugar and water to a pan and bring to a boil. Reduce the flame and let it simmer till the syrup reaches one string consistency around 5-7 minutes.
Heat butter in a nonstick pan. Add cocoa and cook for 1 minutes.
Add essence and sugar syrup. Mix nicely. It will start thickening. Switch off the flame. Add nuts to the mixture. Cool it a little.
Lightly grease a plate. You can also line it with butter sheet/foodwrap which makes it easy to take out chocolate to cut.
Keep it in freezer for 2-3 hours so that the chocolate sets nicely. I keep the chocolate pieces in fridge and take them out only before serving so that it does not melt.
Take out and cut in the desired shape.
