- ½ cup Milk Powder
- 3 tsp. Cocoa Powder
- 4 tbsp. Unsalted Butter (@ room temp.)
- 2/3 cups Sugar
- 2/3 cups Water
- 3 tbsps. Mixed dry fruits (chopped)
First, sift together milk powder & cocoa powder. Set aside.
In a non-stick pan, dissolve sugar in water & allow it to boil on med. flame for about 10 mins.
Keep stirring till it reaches a one thread consistency.
To test, drop few drops of the sugar syrup in a bowl of water. It should settle down at the bottom like strings & not dissolve in it. Be alert! The syrup will quickly change its consistency after reaching the string consistency & starts crystallizing.
Reduce to low flame & add butter. Stir to incorporate butter completely.
Add the reserved milk-cocoa powder mixture a little at a time & stir while doing this to avoid lumps.
Mix & combine thoroughly. Add the chopped dry fruits & mix well to form a nice thick paste.
Cook till the mixture starts leaving the sides.
Switch off the flame & beat the mixture with a spoon for about a minute or till the mixture thickens slightly.
Pour in a greased tray & quickly spread to level it.
Cool completely. Cut into desired shapes using a sharp knife or pizza cutter.
You may even use decorative cookie cutters if you like.
Enjoy at Christmas or whenever you feel like eating it!
