Chocolate Modak by Saveen Kaur

Hey lovelies so it's that time of the year when it is time to welcome Bappa so here is a simple but yummy way to make the festival more fun and joyous by making Chocolate Modaks 🍫🤤😋

It's is a very simple process!

All you need is - 

1. A good quality Chocolate of your choice. 

2. Nuts of your Choice like Almonds, Pistachios, Walnuts, Cashewnuts, Raisins. 

3. Modak Chocolate Mould 

4. Essence of your favorite flavor

5. Chocolate Wrapping Paper!

Keep all the ingredients ready including Chocolate Wrapping Paper. 

Make sure the moulds are washed and nicely dried. 

Always use absolutely clean and dry tools for making Chocolates. 

So for making Chocolate, you first need to melt or temper the Chocolate and then add the remaining ingredients.

There are three kinds of Chocolate!

- Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate and White Chocolate.

Call for whichever Chocolate you like!

How to temper or melt Chocolate and Make Chocolates -

1. First chop Chocolate finely and keep it aside.

2. Now take a pan and add water in it.

3. Fill only half of it and make sure you can place a glass bowl on it comfortably.

4. Remember the water should be filled to such a level where it is not touching the glass bowl.

5. Now switch on the flame and boil the water.

6. Reduce the flame to low. 

7. Add the finely chopped Chocolate inside it and stir it gently with a clean spatula till the Chocolate starts melting.

Make sure the chocolate doesn't burn.

8. Now remove the glass bowl from the boiling pan and keep it down.

9. Mix in 2-3 drops of essence of your choice and mix it well.

10. Now let the chocolate cool a bit.

11. Bring out the mould, add melted chocolate with a spoon in it.

12. If you want to add Nuts, then fill half Chocolate, add Nuts of your Choice and then fill up the rest.

13. Once you have filled up all the cavities, gently tap the mould carefully to even out the chocolate.

14. Put the chocolate mould in the freezer for 15-  20 minutes till the chocolate has hardened.

15. Remove it from the freezer, keep it on a clean surface.

16. Gently remove all Chocolates from the mould.

17. Keep them on a clean tray.

18. Then pack up the Chocolates neatly in colorful Chocolate Wrapping Paper. 

19. Once you have finished packing Chocolates, put them in a nice Chocolate Gifting Box or store them in a clean glass jar. 

Enjoy and make your loved ones relish them too ❤️

Hope you liked this simple way of making Bappa's festive vibe more joyous! 

Happy Ganesh Chaturthi 🙏
