10 Minutes Chocolate Fudge...step by step.



10 minutes chocolate fudge or should I call it my favorite homemade chocolates.....I have been making this way back from the early 90s.
This chocolate fudge holds a special place in my heart because the success of this, over and again, gave me the confidence to venture into the world of cooking. 

I have lost count of the number of times I have made this fudge, which my kids call it as homemade chocolates. Initially when I started blogging, I had posted this because this fudge is so special to me. 
I have tried all sorts of variations with this fudge; like rolling into small balls, covering it with colored foil papers, mixing it with rum soaked raisins (rum and raisin chocolates), mixed with chopped cashewnuts, topped with sprinkles......so many variations; which you can also try. The best part is there is no expensive chocolates to be melted, just every day stuff which you can find in your pantry and so easy.

Kids will love this super-quick, super-healthy fudge and believe me all it takes is 10 minutes.

Ingredients:
Everyday milk powder 200gm-1 packet.(only use everyday brand)
Sugar-1 cup (200 ml cup)
water-1/2 cup.
Cadbury's cocoa powder-1/4 cup.
Butter-1/4 cup/50 gms.
Vanilla essence-1 or 2 drops.
Crushed cashew nuts-little.(optional,)
Colored sweet balls or silver balls for decoration.(optional)


Method:

Get everything ready.

Keep all the ingredients together, this will get done really quickly. In a saucepan, heat 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water. Let the mixture boil and then simmer.


Allow it to boil till it reaches one string (I have tried to take a picture of the 1 string, but it was difficult balancing cam with one hand and taking the hot sugar syrup with the other)

As soon as it reaches 1 string, switch off fire and add in the butter.

Mix well and add in the vanilla essence.

Then dunk in 1/4 cup of cocoa powder. (you can sieve this to avoid lumps, but I did not)

Mix well, so that there aren't any lumps....those lumps which is showing on the pic is okay, don't mind that, just stir vigorously.

Add in the milk powder

Mix mix mix..... Vigorously...seriously girls, get your arms working.

See, I told you not to worry about the lumps....

Grease a pan.....with the cover of the butter.

Immediately pour this chocolate heaven into the pan....I am doing balancing act, cam on left hand and fudge mix on the right-double wow.

Spread with a spoon (just grease the bottom of a flat spoon with butter and then just spread with it to get a glossy effect).

While still warm cut into your desired shapes....kids are going to love this. This will keep more than a week at room temperature If they are allowed to stay.

Happy Valentines Day to all.
Enjoy!

  24. Hi Nisa
    Should we keep the fudge in the fridge for setting or room temperature is fine? Also, how much time is required for setting?

    1. Indu, room temp is perfect...I usually keep it overnight...but anywhere between 2 to 3 hours would be fine. hope this helps.

Puff Pastry Recipe - Homemade Puff Pastry

Puff pastry recipe: Homemade puff pastry in 15 minutes, can you believe that??  Bakery style Puff pastry is so easy to make at home that you will never buy greasy bakery puffs. The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry"

Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes.

Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style.

Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs.

The first time she tau…

Vattayappam / Steamed Rice Cake / Kerala Style

Vattayappam is Kerala's own fermented SteamedRice Cake. One of the healthiest traditional tea time snack with almost no oil. It is popular in the Christian communities of Kerala, though not much popular in North Kerala/ Malabar.

 "Vatta" means "round" ......vattayappam is basically rice and coconut grinded together and fermented with yeast....it is very soft and pillowy.....a slightly sweet snack......these days, it has found its place in bakeries especially in Kochi and Kottayam...and when I got a request from an anonymous reader asking for vattayappam recipe...I thought of sharing the recipe...as it is very easy to make...and does not take much time to make. I usually make it as an after school snack as it is very healthy and filling for kids.

Caramel pudding recipe; a delicious traditional dessert with creamy caramel over silky custard. Caramel custard is my favorite pudding.

All through my childhood, amma makes caramel pudding as a Sunday special.....achachen (my dad) love only this pudding...... 42 years of serving caramel pudding to him has made amma, a sort of an authority on caramel pudding recipe! Ah yes, like always this is amma's recipe. It is her signature, no-fail recipe. of caramel custard.



Okay lets talk about this pudding!!  I used 4 eggs because amma said so eggs are the show stopper here :)......it is needed to make the pudding silky-satin, and stand tall....and yes it will not crumble.....now you may wonder....won't this be eggy!!smelly!! I promise it won't....there wouldn't be too much eggy flavor! caramel flavor can do wonders!! Believe me!!



I am using my steamer or appachembu as it is known locally to cook the pudding. While the pudding is steaming, it is important that once steam comes, …
