Mini Chocolate Nankhatai Recipe

Sharing is caring!

Mini Chocolate Nankhatais are kids favorite ones and they usually disappear very quickly. When I was baking the regular Nankhatais, because I told my boys that they ought to try out new dishes, at least in baked snacks, they decided they can. They loved the Nankhatais and wanted to snack on them. I decided I could make some chocolate version by adding in some cocoa. I also wanted to use icing sugar and see how different it might be.

I don’t remember reading my store bought icing sugar package, however, some brands have cornflour added. I am not sure what made the difference, but these chocolate nankhatais were, even more, melt in the mouth types than the regular ones. Yes, I made these in mini sizes as we were visiting our families and wanted everybody to taste. Kindly ignore the pictures as these were clicked just before leaving and I practically had no time.

This goes to my Kid’s Delight event, guest hosted by Gayathri, who wants all Mini Baked Goodies. This is for BM#72 week 3.
