  6. Delicious homemade chocolate is ready to be served to your loved ones. 
  7. NOTES: I have used dairy whitener milk powder as it gives soft chocolates. You can add vanilla essence, chocolate essence or crushed nuts of your choice to further enhance the taste. To check one-thread consistency of sugar syrup, touch the syrup between your forefinger and thumb and a thin string should be formed which should not break. This is the right consistency. If the string breaks, just simmer the syrup for a little while longer. After you add milk powder and cocoa powder mixture to sugar-butter syrup, do not cook for more than a minute or two. Once it becomes a smooth batter, switch off the flame. Ensure that the sugar syrup reaches one string consistency.
