Sweet Endings…

Yay…raced to the finishing line; 7 recipes on 7 consecutive days! That’s something for a blog which has seen a lull for a very long time!

Some more demanding priorities had forced me to neglect My Foodcourt for a long time. I wanted to get back here and Nupur’s call made me jump at the opportunity. The only hurdle was that, I was on the move for the first 2-3 days, but Auto scheduling posts took care of that.

Nupur’s enthusiasm is infectious and it was impossible for me to ignore her invitation. Thanks Nupur for instigating activity on My Foodcourt and for the lovely ’round-ups’ for all the past 6 days! 

The Marathon and the year will end on a sweet note : Peanut Butter Bites

This quick and simple recipe is from Tarla Dalal’s ‘The Chocolate Cookbook’. Me and my little one had a great time making these chocolate bites.

The choco bites have turned out a bit messy looking and not the perfect shape as I would have liked them to be, but with a 4 ½ old year helping me and kept busy I was least bothered about the appearance! These are absolutely delicious chocolaty bites; don’t go by the looks!

Peanut Butter Bites recipe:

125 gms dark chocolate (or light or white)

 For the filling:

1 cup peanut butter

1/3 cups icing sugar

¼ cups Cocoa powder

 Mix the filling ingredients together.

Roll out into small lemon sized balls. (Refrigerate if required)

Meanwhile melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Take care to see that the base of the bowl is not in contact with the water in the double boiler.

Once the chocolate starts melting, stir continuously till the chocolate melts completely and resembles a smooth sauce

Remove from the double boiler.

Cool the chocolate to room temperature stirring continuously, so that the chocolate cools evenly and no lumps remain.

Coat the peanut butter balls with the chocolate on all sides and place on a cookie tray with butter paper.

I decorated the bites with some colored sprinkles, though the recipe does not say so.

Refrigerate till the chocolate hardens.

Wish You all a very Happy New year ! See you in the New year…..

    Oh, Madhuli, wait till my daughter (17 yo) sees this! She just LOVES peanut butter — with the chocolate it’s too much to resist.

    Your candy bites look so pretty — who wants uniform factory-looking candy anyway? I much prefer these 🙂

    Wishing you and yours a happy and healthy new year!
