Home Made Milk Chocolate

Nov 23rd 2009

Received this recipe from my sister in law Latha ( Thank you!). Was extremely quick and easy to make. I reserve judgement on this yet. It does taste very good, no doubt about that, but tastes more like a chocolate cake than actual chocolate itself. I am not sure if it is because I took it out of the pan a bit early or because of the milk powder. Need to do some more exploration on this and see what other recipes are out there.

Variations to try would be to substitute dark chocolate powder instead of the cocoa powder to get the rich dark chocolate taste, and of course addition of some nuts and raisins might just get you dairy milk :)


Milk Powder - 3 cups

Cocoa powder - 1/2 cup

Sugar - 3/4 cup
Butter - 3/4 cup
Water - 1/2 cup

Method de Preparation
  1. Sieve milk powder & cocoa power thrice or more till it gets mixed well.
  2. Heat sugar & water & wait till u get one thread consistency
  3. Bring it down & add butter.
  4. When it melts add powder & mix.
  5. Transfer the chocolate to a greased plate & cut out required shapes.

Very interesting and easy recipe. Thank you. But what is "one thread consistency"?

Anu Karthik said...

@ sowmya: one thread consistency or string consistency is like kambi paagu, when you take your spoon or ladle out of that water-sugar mix, the syrup should drip but also bounce back to touch the ladle like a string or elastic, hope this makes some sense.
