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 ;-))

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.

butter cocoa

Heat butter in a nonstick pan. Add cocoa and cook for 1 minutes.

add syrup add

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.
