For the final day of travel food, I wanted to share the most delicious treat one can think about! The Ultimate Chocolate! Can you imagine the excitement this created at home, when I was making this? Since I always have Konda complaining that I hardly let her do the actual cooking, I decided I would let her do this. She was helping with clicking the pictures and then helped in stirring this.
I guess I made a judgemental error in the final touch up as she was slow in doing that. The butter should not actually get cooked, however even if it is not cooked, one should be very quick to stir it. After setting the butter was seen on top. Not that it ever mattered to my kids or others who ate this. There is nothing more tempting a soul than a stirring the molten glossy chocolate! And Konda was going aww, ohhh with every stir. I was sure if I wasn't around, she might have licked it right away, never bothering to set it.
I made this quite late at night and set it in fridge. I wanted to make sure I sliced into little moulds and click pictures before it was attacked. These reminded me of those homemade chocolates one gets in Ooty and Kodaikanal. Those tastes so good with loads of nuts and so very chocolaty.
During our tours, it mostly were savory snacks that Amma would pack. However if she plans to carry sweets, she used to make Coconut Barfi
. For a change, with changing times, these delicious chocolate fudge makes the perfect treat when you are travelling. Especially now that we hardly travel by train and it's mostly road journeys, with me solely incharge of giving the snacks. I have a big program all planned, with cups, covers and what not. We try to keep the kids occupied by non stop snacks being passed on every now and then.
Nothing interests them more than chocolates, of course. And these were such delicious ones. You must try for sure.
