Hot Chocolate Sandesh Truffle

Hot Chocolate Sandesh Truffle

Sharing is caring!

Hot Chocolate Sandesh Truffle is my choice for alphabet H in the A to Z Bengali Sweet Series.

H was long pending in my list and until I came across a sweet listed in the online store, I didn’t have a clue on what I was going to make. That Sandesh was shaped as a spoon and didn’t have any detail on how it is made. So I created my own using Cadbury’s Hot Chocolate Drinking powder as the base.

Many times, I am struck with wonder when I think how we reach a state of Eureka! Yes, this almost came to me when I was lying down just before falling asleep, pondering how to tackle this alphabet, when it suddenly struck me that I could make Sandesh truffles.

I have mentioned that I made 3 huge batches of chhana that was well kneaded and made into smaller portions. I also had a spreadsheet where I had grouped by the cooking method and what will have a common base and other common structure. One of the sets had these fusion dishes and this was the only set of sweets that my boys eat and enjoyed so much.

Konda knew this had Sandesh as the stuffing and was grinning away when her brothers were praising these truffles. I kept these truffles for the final cooking as the chocolate stock was over and I had to shop. This is when Veena took me shopping just for this and this is my treat to her virtually though she doesn’t like chocolates much.

So finally even though the entire series was a hit with Hubby dear and my friends, I was happy that I could make my boys happy as well. Nothing like kids getting joy after indulging in truffles right!
