Homemade Chocolate Candy

Back in the day when chocolate wasn't as popular as it is today, my gran would make this version for her kids. It uses ingredient lying in the pantry and makes for a quick treat for kids and adults alike. It doesn't taste like chocolate but it's worth a shot. Eat it as a candy or a chocolate milk concoction, it's a crowd-pleaser for sure. It's fast, easy and delicious and I can't see why you wouldn't want to make it right now!

Here's how to do it:

Recipe for Homemade Chocolate Candy:


Cocoa Powder15 gms
Drinking Chocolate10 gms
Sugar140 gms
Milk50 ml
Heavy Cream50 ml

How to make Homemade Chocolate Candy:

1. Pop all the ingredients in a non stick pan and mix well. Cook the mixture on low heat, stirring frequently.
2. After 8-9 minutes, test the mixture by adding a drop of it to a bowl of water. If it retains it's shape, you're good to go.

3. Now, you'll need to move fast! Turn off the heat and give the mixture a quick stir, then pour it into a tin/ container. We usually use aluminium baking tins. Tap the container to level the top and eliminate any potential air bubbles.

4. Let it cool for a minute and then score the 'slab' according to your choice of shape and size (Don't take forever to decide, though. We want to score it before it sets). We usually make square shaped ones but it's up to you. Then let the mixture set completely. This should take approximately 15 minutes.

5. Once fully set, cut it into pieces and store them into an airtight container. These can be eaten as a sweet treat or popped into a glass of hot milk in the winters. That way, chocolate milk can be made in seconds! This recipe makes for a quick food gift as well.
