Coconut and chocolate – I find so many people who don’t like this combination but trust me these heart bites are to die for! A little high on sugar, just one piece is enough to elevate your mood.
I remember having bounty so much as a kid. That rich smooth chocolate outside filled with the creamy coconut inside – I used to love every bite of it! If you guys haven’t had one as yet – you have definitely missed out on something. :p
Here, I have tried to prepare the same combination with a bit of love! This is one of those recipes that I decided to prepare on a whim at 10 o’clock in the night. I just could not resist the thought of tasting the combination constantly whirring in my mind and had to prepare it. Lol! Even my mother gave up – she is like – “Go prepare on your own!” Haha, but mothers are mothers – they eventually come around to help you out in case of any need. But having said that – this recipe is so simple and quick that you really won’t need anyone else’s help!
So, go try this recipe immediately! 😀
Prep Time: 30 mins
- 250 gms Maavo/khoya
- 100 gms sugar (preferably powdered)
- 80-90 gms grated dry coconut
- 150 gms dark chocolate
- 1/2 tspn vanilla essence
- 1/2 tspn cardamom powder
- Take a non-stick pan and heat the mava/khoya in it. Keep stirring continuously till you see a little ghee start leaving from the khoya.
- While the khoya is getting heated; on the other side, melt the chocolate in a double boiler or using a microwave.
- Now, add the sugar, coconut and cardamom powder and mix thoroughly until everything is combined properly and you get a smooth halwa like consistency (See the pic).
- Now, add the vanilla essence and mix once again.
- Take a mould and fill the bottom half with the prepared khoya-coconut mixture. Fill the remaining half of the moulds with the melted chocolate.
- Let the moulds sit in the fridge for about 4-5 hours or overnight!
