When I think about motherhood, I’m always reminded of this Telugu movie song …

Who doesn’t love chocolate? Summer holidays are great fun, long play times, no homework, visiting grand parents, going on picnic or vacation. Moms and grandmoms prepare lots of snacks for kids. On hot summer days, its hard to spend time in the kitchen so its great to prepare a favorite snack with a quick and simple recipe – chocolate burfi !!
Its amazing how five simple ingredients can be used to make such a fabulous snack. Its often served during festivals like Diwali, HoIi. I have used Almond but you could choose your favorite and be creative with the burfi shapes.
- Almond powder – one-fourth cup
- Mawa milk powder – three – fourth cup
- Coco powder – two tbsp and half tbsp
- Sugar – half cup
- Butter – two tblsp
- Water – one – fourth cup
In a pan, add sugar and water. Boil it on medium heat until you get one string consistency. Now add butter, coco powder, almond powder and milk powder. Keep stirring the mixture until butter starts leaving the sides of the pan (it takes less than a minute) .
Turn off heat and spread on a greased plate / tray and press into half inch thickness.
While still warm cut in to squares or any shapes using cookie cutter.
Note : Use this tip to create even sized burfis. Grease the flat bottom surface of a small bowl and spread the burfi mixture using the bowl. It protects your hands from hot mixture.
Tip : To speed up the cooling, keep the pressed burfi mixture in a refrigerator for five mins.
Serves four to five
