microwave chocolate-5 minutes recipe

 Homemade chocolates ,ready in minutes and great as a gift.These were yummy,soft and chewy.I made a small batch ,Which yielded  about 25 pieces - all by the way,vanished in thin air before  the weekend...a note to myself  next time,make an even smaller batch.

 Update : We  visited India this year and I made a big batch as gift for relatives ,everyone just loved it and kept asking me the recipe .Hope you all enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them .

1/4 cup: evaporated milk
1/4 cup:powder sugar
1/2  to 1 tbs butter(change to preference)
1/4 cup chocolate chip
1/4 cup almond powder


  • Microwave the milk and sugar for 2 minutes,no need to stir .
  • add butter and chocolate chip microwave another 2 minutes stirring every 30 sec.
  • add almond powder,if runny microwave 1 more minute and do the drop ball test as follows
  • In a bowl full of water drop the chocolate paste and look what happens ,if the chocolate settles on the bottom ,you are able to pick it up and roll into a ball then its good, but if it dissolves right away then the paste needs some more microwaving
  • once cool cover with plastic wrap and refrigerated for a minimum of 2 hours
  • once cool shape into desired size,these can be made into truffles or can be molded into fancy shapes
  • Enjoy with your loved ones.
Note: I bought the molds from eBay -I don't remember the seller but it's called silicone candy molds .Just go to eBay and type the name .
Here is a quick video tutorial:

    1. Thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting on the post .reagrding your Q: if you don't have microwave (I think that's what you mean by oven ) you can do the same on a stove top in a saucepan over low to medium heat .The only reason I used a microwave methode is because it is quick and easy.Hope this helps.
