I was really confused what to name this recipe. We just call it chocolate. This is my family’s favorite.

I generally don’t buy much of chocolate from the market . The only ones affordable are the Indian brands . Imported ones are costly.So making at home is the best option for me, keeps my family happy too.


Most of you have access to the best chocolate available abroad .But try making this recipe I am sure you will like it . But ple..ee..ase don’t end up calling it chocolate burfi ple.ease . :))))))))))))

This recipe was given to me by my friend Gi. By the way I made the chocolate yesterday and today only 1/4 is left…..

In fact this time the chocolates are looking much better than ever before. Probably the chocolates also knew they had to look their best after all the whole world was going to view them on the net .. hee……. hee …eee πŸ™‚



1/2 cup water for syrup

150 gms Milk powder ( I used Everyday Dairy Whitener)

90 gms butter
40 gms cocoa

METHOD:-Sieve cocoa and milk powder in bowl .

[rockyou id=67184200&w=600&h=200]

Make a sugar syrup of 2 strings consistency. As the sugar starts boiling put a drop of syrup on a plate. If the drop spreads it is still not done.The moment it retains a shape of a drop (a soft ball) it is ready.

Remove the vessel from fire ,add the milk powder mixture and butter in the syrup and beat well with a spoon, The mixture should turn glossy. Pour this chocolate on greased plate. Let it cool, and cut to pieces.



  1. first time i ventured to make chocolate i almost burnt the house down and the pan became histrory πŸ˜‰
    love the chocolate “burfi” archu πŸ™‚ he he he…

    Oh Sups there are less chances of burning the chocolate in this recipe . Try it. You did not see my slide show ?Burfi noo….oo!!!!

  2. Vow a homemade presentation for the chocolate, Wonderful going. U r picking up computers real fast.
    The chocolate looks really tempting. Do they need to be refrigerated.
    Before long they will be finished I guess. Good work , Archu!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks Vibha,
    The chocolates do not need to be refrigerated.Yes yes they will finish fast. Visit again πŸ™‚

  3. the texture of the chocolate has come out so well. and its so simple. we can even decide how much sugar we want right?
    nice recipe Archana!

    It is a simple recipe Sharmi. It does not involve much time. You can use slightly less sugar but not too less.Try it πŸ™‚

  4. hey archana, you are quite the pro in burfi err chocolate making πŸ™‚ how about Archie’s Choc’s !!!!
    i’m sure they taste hundred times better than the imported stuff πŸ˜‰ save some for me πŸ™‚

    I knew I knew you would say that. No burfis, they aredesi brownies. I will make fresh ones for you come. Thanks, have a great weekend πŸ™‚

  5. You make your own Chocolate!!!!Never heard of it but you know,it makes sense to make your own than buying a sugary stuffed chocloate.Looks great Archana.I call Brownies though!:)

    First of all thanks Asha for calling it brownies πŸ™‚ How about desi brownies ?

  6. He coool one πŸ™‚ I make chocolate fudge at home…but never tried this one πŸ™‚ Thanks1


    Thanks Shn πŸ™‚ Even I make chocolate fudge but always ended with disasters. Some how I manage to make this ok.

  7. Hi Archana, a cool recipe. Lovely slide show.
    I will surely try this if I get some time. Home made always taste better than anything πŸ™‚ Well done.

    Hi Jas,Thanks. Your slide show inspired me to make one . I must thank you for that.Try the recipe some time πŸ™‚

  8. Hi Archana, don’t worry, chocolate burfis as I know them are quite, quite different. Nice to be able to make your own chocolate – and it sounds simple too, without the bother of moulds and all that. Just saw your salad bar post too, here, all the restaurants I know are doing away with the salad bar, and I’m the kind who genuinely enjoys salad. Bummer!

    Thanks Sra to acknowledge my chocolates :)They taste gr8.
    Even I like salads, Luckily there is a restaurant which serves these salads but at a whopping price. It is a treat to see their containers brimming with colourful vegees/ pastas etc .Your dish with paneer and pasta is also nice πŸ™‚

  9. Meant to tell you I liked your blog header! Your earlier pink one was attractive too!

    Thanks for appreciating . It is the template which gives choices for colour.Pink one was a rose .
    Not my creation πŸ™‚

  22. Hey, I made this… And it was a huge hit with both family and friends… I made two more batches over the weekend… and everything was gone in seconds…. Folks at home don’t even wait for it to be cooled down πŸ™‚ Thank you so much!

  23. Hi there… Would very much like to try this recipe. But would want to clear some doubts before trying.

    1. Is the butter salted/unsalted?
    2. Is the butter used directly from the fridge or cooled at room temperature (softened) or melted (hot)
    3. How many pieces does the recipe yield? the same size as u have cut.


    • Hi Aakriti,
      The butter should be unsalted and should be at room temperature only soft and not melted.
      Just remove the butter from the fridge before you star making the chocolate.Do not heat it to soften it. Even if it is a little hard it is bound to melt when it comes in contact with the hot mixture.
      This mixture should yield 20 odd pieces.Sorry cant give the exact figure.

  24. hey i tried this recipe. but why homemade chocolate melt so quickly.. 😦 what to do if i want to gift this chocolate to my friends..
