Nothing gets me going like a good recipe and a new dish to bake. The planning, the excitement when the dish looks like its working out, the joy of seeing my family and friends gobble it up and eagerly looking forward to what I can bake next, everything about baking makes me happy (the messy kitchen counter top aside :p) Here's a peek into my kitchen, my cooking, my wonderland.

Easy peasy choco balls

There are days when measuring, mixing, baking just don't do it. If an easy choco fix is what you are looking for, look no further. My fudgy choco balls can be made in about ten minutes, give or take, and can be devoured instantly if you can bear a scalded tongue, or be left to cool and gobbled up, for gobbled up they will be. Trust me, they wont last long. No one believes that they are super easy to make and this dessert has been shared over and over again, with many asking for the recipe, so here it is. 

Easy peasy choco balls
For the choco balls, you will need:
1 can condensed milk
1/2 cup of cocoa powder
1 teaspoon unsalted butter for rolling the balls

Start off by heating the condensed milk in a heavy bottomed pan. Keep the flame on low and keep stirring till it bubbles up. Be sure to scrape the edges often as condensed milk can burn quickly on heat if not stirred well. After about four to five minutes you shall notice the condensed milk thickening up a bit. Add in your cocoa powder (you can add more or less depending on how chocolatey you want it) and keep stirring till it coats the back of your spoon. After about four to five more minutes, take it off the heat. The mixture will look liquidy, but don't worry, it will set. Pour the mixture on a plate and let it cool. You can also keep it in the fridge if you are impatient. Once it is cooled, it will harden up a bit. This is when you can start rolling it into balls. Coat your hands with some butter, drop spoonfuls of the mixture into your palm and roll. Top off with an m&m on each ball and you are done.
