Know more about ..

A delightful dessert loved by all ages. I am not a die hard chocolate fan but still love to indulge one piece whenever I get chance. I have learnt to make chocolates during my college days. I still remember when my bakery chef Mr I.Alam called all students home and we got to taste his secret recipe of homemade chocolates. I bet we all had more than one and the taste was awesome. Digging my knowledge and after my little experiment my chocolates turned so well that I don’t mind if my son have one bite of it and when he appreciated me with so much of love and a word YUMMYYY.

Home-made chocolates reminds me of my bakery chef and also the chocolates my brother got especially for me from Kodaikannal , Ooty trip. This Diwali I want to treat my goodies tray with these special homemade chocolates- Almond Choco Delight. I believe, anything if you eat in right amount will surely never harm your health. And the ingredients which you use , you are sure it’s good for your tiny tots and loved one’s.

Make your festive season special by gifting your loved ones your own simple and amazing creation.
