Homemade Chocolates

My mom always made these for our birthdays and we all used to love it because we can get to eat more. Now as a mom, I would still prefer giving these chocolates to my daughter than the store bought ones as it is made without artificial sweeteners or high fructose corn syrup or any other preservatives. This is a simple recipe that takes less than 10 min to make and you can use your creativity to make a variety of chocolates.

  • 1 cup Milk powder
  • 2 tsp Cocoa powder (Adjust to taste)
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 1/2 cup Sugar (Adjust to taste)
  • 1/4 cup chopped dry fruits & nuts like Cashews, Almonds & Raisins (Optional)
