Chocolate Coconut Laddoo
By Puja Darshan
2 cup freshly grated coconut
1/2 cup condensed Milk
100 gm semi-sweet dark chocolate
1/4 cup melted white chocolate.
Dry roast the grated coconut in a pan over low heat for approximately 3-4 minutes.
Once the coconut is adequately roasted, transfer it to a bowl and allow it to cool completely.
Grind the roasted coconut into a fine powder and place it on a plate.
Mix the ground coconut powder with condensed milk until well combined.
Take portions of the mixture, shape it into round ladoos, using a touch of ghee on your palms to prevent sticking. Place the laddoos in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to firm up.
While the coconut balls are chilling, melt dark chocolate for coating.
Remove the coconut balls from the freezer and, one at a time, dip each into the melted chocolate. Ensure they are evenly coated.
Gently tap off any excess chocolate and place the chocolate-coated balls on a sheet of parchment paper.
Repeat the same coating process for the remaining laddoos.
Drizzle melted white chocolate over the chocolate-coated laddoos for an extra touch of flavor and decoration.
Chill the laddoos until the chocolate hardens (which should take 15 minutes) and enjoy tasting them!
