Pedas are a traditional Indian sweet distributed across India during the festival or auspicious occasion. I love chocolates hence combined them with pedas thus making chocolate pedas.
I have used milk choco chips for the chocolate flavor but you could use cocoa powder instead. Also, I have used Callebaut brand you could use any good brand.
It’s raining cats and dog’s here while I am writing this post. Thankfully there would be sufficient water for everyone considering the inadequate rainfall so far.
This sweet is made mainly from condensed milk and milk powder. Reason being the readers abroad are unable to use mava (milk fudge) so made with condensed milk. I have used the Indian brand Mithai Mate you could use any good brand.
To further give them intricate pattern on top have used the peda stamps. I know the next question coming up would be where do you get peda stamper. I would help you here purchase them online hope this helps’ you 🙂 I am sharing the pic for peda stamper below.
The challenge while making these are the milk powder could get lumpy. We need a smooth and lump free mixture. Not to worry just blend them with a hand blender and you are sorted. I did the same and result was smooth pedas.
I am on a spree of making Indian sweets due to Ganesha festival approaching soon. So busy making them and distributing amongst friends and family. I have a sweet tooth just visited dentist last month 😉
My friend and her son enjoyed these chocolate pedas. If you asked me I loved them too.
