HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE CHOCOLATE RECIPE Take a sieve and add milk powder and cocoa powder to it. Sieve the powders over a dry bowl or vessel and keep it aside.
Take a flat tray or plate and smear ghee on it and keep it aside._x000D_ _x000D_ Heat a heavy bottomed pan. Add sugar and water and heat on a high flame till the bubbles appear. Then lower the flame and cook till the syrup reaches a one-thread consistency.
Once the syrup reaches one-thread consistency, add butter to it and mix well. Cook till butter melts. Keep it to low flame all the while.
Now add milk powder and cocoa powder to this mixture and mix well. Once all ingredients are mixed well, the mixture will look like a smooth chocolate batter. (This will approximatetly take a minute or two). Switch off the flame.

Delicious homemade chocolate is ready to be served to your loved ones.
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._x000D_
