Chocolate Burfi Recipe - Diwali Sweets for Kids

Chocolate Burfi Recipe

Chocolate Burfi is a very easy burfi that even beginners can try, it just melts in your mouth, so soft and textured that I loved it instantly. The fact that this burfi also requires very little ghee made me to try it instantly....I used my maida burfi as base recipe for this chocolate burfi and it came out soo good.I just tried with a very small quantity as its the first time I am trying, chocolate burfi will sure be a perfect treat for kids and chocolate lovers like me :)

Chocolate Burfi Recipe

My Notes:

  • Use good quality coco powder for good flavour and color.
  • I used everyday brand milk powder.If your milk powder is coarse then grind it once to make it a fine powder.
  • The sugar syrup will be hot so be careful while touching it. Else you can check it with a laddle and see.I find checking with fingers easy as I've been doing this for a while now so got used to this method. 
  • Choose a plate according to the quantity so that you can get perfect thickess and shape.
  • The mixture will thicken fast so act quickly.Once milk powder mixture is added keep stirring to get the desired consistency.
  • You can even leave it as such without nuts, but if you are adding nuts add it immediately while its still hot else it will not stick to the burfi.
  • Keeps well for 4-5 days, after that refrigerate it.

    1. If the sugar string consistency passes next stage then the burfis may turn hard.
