Chocolate balls
A friend of mine visited us with her kid. When the kid started throwing tantrums, my friend asked if I could bring her a cookie or chocolate to calm down the child. I hadn't stacked up enough treats at home, but thankfully, had the below ingredients handy. Within five minutes, I rolled out these chocolate balls, and the kid loved it! Makes a great holiday treat as well. With lovely wrappers, your delectable gifts are ready to go!


Ingredients:

milk powder (dry milk) - 1 cup
cocoa - 4 tbsp
sugar - 3/4 cup
butter - 1 tbsp
milk - 1/4 cup
chopped nuts - 2 tbsp (optional
raisins - 1 tbsp (optional)

Method:

Sieve milk powder and cocoa together without any lumps. Heat sugar, add 1/4 cup water and make a syrup. Add milk powder-cocoa mixture and stir in the nuts and butter. Finally, add the milk, mix well and remove from fire. Allow to cool and roll into bite-sized balls.

Notes:
1. Reduce the sugar to 1/2 cup if you prefer the taste of dark chocolate.
2. Use fat-free milk powder and milk if possible.
3. If overheated, the chocolate becomes hard and chewy.
