An indigenous, chocolaty treat that was once popularly made in homes all over India, at a time where commercial chocolates were neither easily available nor economical.

Homemade Chocolate Balls is a recipe that unfailingly kindles happy childhood memories in all of us. It is a quick and easy recipe, and kids can help their mothers make it.

The combination of crushed biscuits, coconut and cocoa held together by gooey condensed milk gives this chocolaty dessert (or snack, if you are a sweet lover!) an exciting mouth-feel and rich flavour.

It can be relished immediately and also stored for a week or 10 days, to enjoy whenever you wish!

You can try other recipes like the Poha Ladoo or Chocolate Mousse.

   Hi Saloni, You can skip using coconut. You can add finely chopped dry fruits to it.
