- Mash the khoya . Cook it in a non stick pan on with ghee till it turns light pink in colour.
- Once it leaves the pan sides remove it in a metal bowl.
- Dissolve the cocoa powder in 1 tbsp of water or milk
- Bring the water to boil in a pan and add sugar. Dissolve the sugar and stir for a little while till it gets little thick and you get a two to three wire consistency ( take a little syrup on the back of the spoon and leave it. You will see a three wire consistency)
- Add cocoa liquid to the sugar syrup and stir.
- Add the sugar mix to the khoya and mix well for even chocolate colour consistency.
- Spread in a greased plate and let it cool for a while. You can chill it for an hour in the refrigerator.(Once fully cooled and set you have an option of cutting it in squares and serving it like chocolate burfis)
- For making the rolls, take a big wide spoon and scoop a small section of the mixture. Shape it in a roll with your hands and garnish with chopped almonds. Repeat the same process with the entire mixture to make all the rolls.
- Store it in an airtight container. You can consume it the same day or if any left then refrigerate the rolls for the next day.

Chocolate & Milk Almond Fudge Rolls
Happy Diwali !!!!
The beautiful festival has finally arrived and I am busy preparing for the festivities. Lights, decoration, colours and sweets are all around me and I am loving every bit of it.
Sweet distribution is one of the most common practise in Diwali. When you visit your loved ones, you bring in a box of sweets presenting your good wishes. The market is flooded with so many coloured sweets but I was little reluctant in buying them considering the amount of adulteration that goes behind in bulk orders.
I made this recipe for my cousin so that they can enjoy the goodness of homemade sweets guiltfree :)
This is a chocolate and milk almond fudge roll that I made for Diwali. Its a very simple recipe and tastes delicious. I was supposed to make Barfis ( squares) but landed up trying a new variation.
Do try this recipe and share it with your family and friends and stay assured that will vanish off in a jiffy after you serve them :)
"Chocolate & Milk Almond Fudge Rolls"
250 gms Khoya ( dried whole milk)
100 gms sugar
1 tsp ghee ( clarified butter)
50 ml water
3 tbsp cocoa powder
few almonds chopped
Note : You can make simple khoya rolls too if you dont like chocolate flavour. The same can be used to make different coloured rolls by adding few drops of food colour to the khoya mixture.
Add pistachios instead of almond for different taste and textures. The rolls will soft resembling a fudge so taste great when eaten fresh. If you dont want to use ghee ( clarified butter) then use 1 tsp of unsalted butter.
