Happy Wednesday guys!

Wooooo! It’s really getting colder and darker here. But this is also the time of festivals, and that’s enough to cheer me up. Yay for the best time of the year. I just adore this season and wish it should always be the festive time. I know, I know, I am asking too much.

But may be one more month, that’s not too much then! Huh? 😉

Hahaha, jokes apart. This is awesome festival time, and that means I am literally craving for chocolate desserts. Mmmmmm, chocolate desserts are so good.

You know me, I love anything chocolate. So as promised in my last post here, I am continuing my festive dessert spirit and sharing another wonderful chocolate dessert recipe. Oooops, it’s not just a recipe, it’s a VIDEO recipe. Yeaaahh! I made another video. Cheers to that! 😀

Let me be honest here and tell you a little secret. I am having such a weird feeling these days — whenever I make a dish for posting here, I always want to make a video.

But you know, technically it’s nearly impossible for one individual, even though I consider myself a one (wo)man army. And that means, I can’t always do that. The other thing is that I don’t want to make a recipe at all until I am ready to make a video.

I always think that I can push myself. But can’t really do that, and that makes me feel bad. Is it normal or strange? Grrrrr, may be it’s just a temporary video learning phase. Do you guys ever feel the same?

One more thing, that I can’t really click step by step photos when I make a video recipe. So what I do is that I simply take snapshots out of the video. I try my best, but I also know that sometimes they are not very clear.

So I simply suggest you to rely more on video, because that’s the main thing in a video recipe! 😉

Well, that’s the fact of life. Nobody is perfect, at least not me. So why wasting time in denying the truth instead of facing it. So I admit it. But that is also a wonderful feeling when I try to be perfect at least in my own eyes!

Anyways, perfection is all about the process, and can certainly never be achieved. Achieving perfection means things can not be improved any further, which certainly is not true. Anything and everything can be improved further. Whether we want to do it, that’s the real choice. 🙂

So the bottom line is that you can just watch the video to get the clear instructions.

Let’s come to the dish — ‘Chocolate Coconut Delights’, which is a Diwali special sweet.

The recipe for these Chocolate Coconut Delights are pretty simple. By this time, I have made it 2 times during the last week. Reason of making these delights 2 times was very simple. The first batch didn’t make much, and we finished that in a flash. You know a chocoholic family!

😉 Mostly because I wanted to make a video, which I didn’t make it at the first time. And anyways there’s no such thing as eating too much chocolate. Afterall this is a festive season, and all festive seasons demand for more and more chocolate.

Hahaha! See, I am very good at reasoning! 😉

So here I go again with super easy, simple, and quick chocolate dessert that you can make for this Diwali. In this particular recipe Mawa/khoya is cooked with desiccated coconut, cocoa powder shaped into discs. And no fancy ingredients needed. Just the basic ones.

Follow the simple steps and you will get that PERFECT chocolate delight. Making these delights can be pretty easy. They can literally be made in minutes. The delights are awesome.

You can certainly make only one batch if you don’t like so much sweet. But these are the festive times, so I recommend making two batches. You can eat one with your family, and then give one as a gift.

Seriously, bring them as gifts to someone, and believe me,they will thank you and love you for bringing such a wonderful tasty treat.

So this would sure make a NICE holiday gift.

Worrying about the amount of chocolate that you should use? If you really don’t like too much chocolate, then simply add 1 ½ tbsp cocoa powder instead of 3 tbsp. See, chocolate has all the good properties, so it’s a NECESSARY thing to have during festivals. 😉

And also I have read that the dark chocolate is good for the brain too. So if you want to brainstorm then do eat lots of chocolate, but it should be dark! 😉

Maybe make it today and eat it tomorrow, day after tomorrow, or for a week – because these can stay that long. But I am not sure, if you could keep these for one week, because if I were you I would have finished them before the moonrise! 🙂

You can also have these for the breakfast. They would also make killer snack or brunch. So for me, I can eat these for all the meals except for lunch/dinner. I wish that I could eat them for lunch or dinner too. 😉
