Chocolate kalakand recipe | easy diwali sweets

I have already posted Kalakand recipe , which is a bit elaborate one. If you want to try an easy and delicious Sweet for this Diwali 2014, then here goes this Chocolate kalakand. I tried this with store bought paneer. I was in a  dilemma of whether to use store bought paneer  or to make paneer at home. During a casual chat with Raks she  was telling that store bought paneer too came out well. So i decided to stick on to the store bought paneer for this chocolate kalakand recipe. I am very sure your kids will love this chocolate kalakand for sure. Varun, who never eats sweets, after me insisting him to try this taste this kalakand, had a bite and hugged me and told”amma you are awesome”!!

Chocolate -kalakand-recipe
  • In a pan combine the paneer, milk powder and condensed milk and mix it evenly without any lumps.
  • Cook the mixture in medium low flame for 10 minutes and add in the cocoa powder.
  • Initially when i made it i don’t know how much time it will take, so i added cocoa powder after 5 minutes. Cooking will cocoa powder for a long time will give slightly bitter taste to the kalakand.
  • So add it towards the end .
