About Chocolate Coconut Laddoo

Chocolate coconut laddo is a simple recipe to make any time when you are craving some sweets, Thia recipe is a combination of coconut and sugar and then coated with chocolate sauce and white chocolate.

My hubby and my daughter both are fond of chocolates, they love anything which has chocolate. Last night after dinner they were searching for chocolates they had kept in the fridge some time back, but they could not find one. No prizes for guessing. It was me who finished that. I felt very bad when I saw them searching.

It was a sheer coincidence that the same day my Mom made some coconut laddoos for some of our guests who were supposed to come the very next day. That triggered an idea and I decided to give that laddoo a twist. So I took out some of the laddoos from Dabba and I gave a nice twist to that simple laddu.

A twist you will be seeing in this post!!!

One big challenge was to make the chocolate sauce because I had some unsweetened cocoa powder. So I just made chocolate ganache and wohoooo, I was ready to make chocolate laddoos It turned out to be a good experiment. My family loved it very much and now it’s time for you to tell me your opinion about the recipe.

All right so let’s jump straight into the recipe, hope you all like the chocolate coconut laddoo!!!
