Yesterday was World Chocolate Day but as I was out all day I didn’t realise it until late evening. Chocolate has been my childhood love. I remember how I use to hog on those Dairy Milk fruit and nut bars. I’d do anything for chocolate. But gone are the days…and these days I don’t even realise when the chocolate from the fridge just disappears 😉
So finally when I did realise that it’s World Chocolate Day, I wanted to make something…didn’t know what. Then spent time just thinking what to make and later almost cancelled my plan to make anything as I was too tired.
But then something happened, something not very significant maybe but it lifted my mood up. Really nothing that big to share here 🙂 Suddenly I found myself hurrying into the kitchen. I was feeling very happy and excited. I felt like a kid and wanted to celebrate my happiness. And what better than chocolate to celebrate. Thankfully I had everything at home that I needed for the recipe.
Again the Chocolate fudge is something, which is very easy and quick to make and satisfies the sweet tooth too. Also I had very less time before the day ended. It was a challenge I had given myself to make and post it on Instagram before the World Chocolate Day actually ended in this part of the world 😊 and yes mission accomplished at the end.
Why I like this recipe? Well, firstly it doesn’t really need many ingredients and secondly it reminds me of the Maganlal Chikki and Fudge in Lonavla that we used to get on our trips as kids. Its very rare that we visit the place even during our trips back home now as we always have a hectic schedule.
So if you are someone like me, who loves Chocolate and finds joy in the little things of life then try this one and thank me later 😊
100 gms dark chocolate, chopped

2. Line a tray with a baking paper.
3. Add walnuts to the chocolate and mix well. Let it cook for a minute. Then add khoya and stir till mixture thickens. Remember you have to keep stirring it continuously otherwise the chocolate can get burnt. Switch off heat and let it cool slightly.
