Instant Chocolate Candies

There is absolutely no one in this entire world who would hate chocolates; a distaste for a particular flavour is understandable, but chocolates have remained a man's lifelong friend since ages. And with a large array of options available in the market, you are sure to find one that captures your heart!! But what if you needed to uplift your mood, or were relaxing at home and had a sudden whim to munch on one and you ran out of the ones in your tin!! Well, here's an Instant chocolate recipe for just those times...It takes less than 10 mins to prepare and you can store them for several days too.

Ingredients
2 tbsp Milk powder
1 1/2 tbsp Cocoa powder
1 large tbsp Drinking Chocolate Mix
1 tbsp Butter
3/4 tbsp Icing sugar
Grated Dry Coconut (optional)
2 tsp chopped Nuts (cashews, almonds, peanuts, or pistachios)
1-2 large tbsp Milk

Method
Take a bowl and mix the drinking chocolate, cocoa powder, milk powder and icing sugar. Melt the butter in the microwave and add it to the mix. Mix well and finally add the chopped nuts and milk and whisk with a spoon to form a very thick viscous batter. Pour this mixture into moulds of desired shape and referigerate it for an hour or so. Take out after 30 mins, then lightly create striations on the top of candies with a tooth-pick, or any other patters. Then refrigerate again for another 30 mins. You can roll the candies in the shredded coconut or mix it with the batter. Indulge your senses with these instant chocolates on a holiday or as a mid-day snack!! They can be perfect additions to your child's lunch box too:)

Tip: You can use any other fruits, nuts or essence to create chocolates of different kinds and flavors. My recommendations would be Hazelnut, Mint, Caramel, Pecans, or Coffee. They all go well with this instant recipe.
