I remember back during my childhood days , a week before Diwali all my neighborhood aunts used to get together and make the traditional Diwali sweets like Karanjees, Rawa ladoos etc this ritual was a great way of making sweets and enjoying making it at the same time, but now with the passing time ,most of women are working and finding time to make all this sweets is nearly impossible plus making them can really be a cumbersome job. The current trend is to buy readymade sweets and distribute it. This alternative is much more convenient but I think to feel the festive spirit at least one sweet can be made at home. And I promise you my recipe of Sweet and salty chocolate fudge will not take more than ten minutes of your time and when packed in pretty packages makes a great gift plus this is also a great way to use up all the dry fruits boxes we receive during Diwali. This fudge is so easy to make even children can make it.
350 gms of Dark Chocolate (If you don’t get the chocolate slab even Bourneville bars will do)
I Tin of Condensed milk (I have used Milk Maid)
200 gms of mixed roasted and salted nuts (I have used Pista, Cashews, and Almonds but you can use whatever is available even salted Peanuts are very good alternative)
You can get around 12big pieces with this recipe. I have used a plain cello pane paper to cover and tied a ribbon around it to give it a festive look.
