This past weekend was a major Indian festival – Diwali, known as the Festival of Lights. We Indians light a lot of lamps and firecrackers, and eat a lot of sweets (oh wait, we do the sweets part no matter what the festival). I usually make a small customary sweet and skip on the rest, this time the minions wanted to make something special and I found this recipe for “Chocolate Fudge Balls” that looked super simple.
(Yes, I know this is a “health” blog and these are decadent!!)

The recipe is from a site called Veggie Belly, a wonderful site for vegetarian (sometimes Indian inspired) food. She’s awesome at food photography too!

All I needed was (refer to the original recipe for variations and tips) –

  • one 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup bitter sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour (optional)
  • 1/4th cup slivered almonds (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom

Put all the ingredients in a pan.

Over a low flame, stir occasionally until all the ingredients melt and mix thoroughly. Took about 5 minutes.

Allow to cool and make into little balls. Let the balls sit for a couple of hours and enjoy the yummiest “chocolate fudge”!!
(The gorgeous photo on the right is from Veggie Belly, to show that these are look just as beautiful as they taste. My Photo skills are sadly lacking.)

Even though this is not my original recipe, I HAD to share it. I’ve been having a bad run with my cooking, messing up every.single.thing. When this turned out exactly as shown on Veggie Belly and oh-so-yummy, I was ecstatic! And inspired to try a few more recipes and see if I can regain my cooking hand.

Have you found a super easy, super delicious recipe from another place that you made/adapted? Share the recipe/link to inspire!
