Chocolate Peda Recipe - Easy Diwali Sweets for Kids

Chocolate Peda Recipe
Chocolate Peda is a very easy,quick and yummy sweet that you can make for this Diwali.I am starting to post diwali special recipes well in advance so that I need not hurry in the last minute like last year.I have already posted a no cook version of chocolate peda.....Usually chocolate peda is made using milk powder or khoya along with condensed milk.This recipe I am posting uses maida and milk powder, and most of the process is done switching off the stove...How cool is that? Actually my friend shared this recipe for burfi with a variation for peda but I tried this peda first.When I heard this recipe from her, I was surprised at the same time skeptical how it would turn out but the pedas came out soo good, sure will be a hit with kids.

When I started listing out recipes to try for this Diwali 2014, most of the recipes I listed were easy to make for beginners as few of my friends requested me to post easy diwali sweets and snacks.So stay tuned for the diwali special posts :)
