I was delighted that Rachana and Adi were coming home for the first time. I had only met Rachana at my aunt’s place, which was like her second home. My aunt, who is no more and she were dear friends. My aunt and I were very close too. She is the inspiration behind my love of baking. So when Rachana said she wanted to come home with her hubby I was happy. She got some prasad, homemade sheera for mom and dad and me, it was so tasty. And we had Bhel puri for dinner and then coffee and chocolates afterwards.
Here’s the recipe of the chocolates I made as an after dinner treat. They’re yum, if I may say so myself. You’ve got to make them at home.
150 gms marzipan ( you can take the marzipan recipe from my blog)
1/2 cup roughly chopped walnuts + 10 halves for decoration
150 gms melted dark chocolate
1 Mix the chopped walnuts into the marzipan.
2 Shape the marzipan into a 9 inch log.
3 With a sharp oiled knife chop the log into 10 even pieces.
4 Dip each piece into the melted chocolate covering the marzipan completely.
5 Before the chocolate covering dries stick a walnut half onto the marzipan. Leave to dry
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week but they will be gone long before that!
