Chocolate Ladoos

Chocolate Ladoos

Taking inspiration from traditional ladoos, I decided to create a chocolate version with a soft centre and delicious chocolate layer.

Ladoos are ball-shaped sweets which are normally eaten during celebrations but also when you want an indulgent treat.

Here is my recipe.


  •  2 small tin of sweetened condensed milk (300g)
  • 1 bar of 70% dark chocolate (I used Lindt)
  •  1 tablespoon good quality cocoa powder
  •  2 tablespoons of milk 
  • 100 grams sifted milk powder 
  • Small bowl of chopped pistachios 


  1. In a saucepan, heat the milk, condensed milk and cocoa on low heat and mix well.
  2. Add the milk powder and keep stirring until the mixture forms a dough like consistency.
  3. Take the pan off heat and let the mixture get a little cooler so you can work with it and then make small round balls from it and lay them out on clingfilm or a cooling rack.
  4. Let these set for around an hour and then pop them in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  5. After they have been in the fridge for 20 minutes, remove them and set aside. Chilling them helps the chocolate coat them smoother.
  6. Break up the chocolate bar in a bowl over simmering water to melt it or alternatively melt it in the microwave.
  7. Now dip each ladoo in the melted chocolate, ensuring to cover completely and roll each one in the bowl of chopped pistachios.
  8. Repeat until all are done and then leave to set in the fridge.
  9. After an hour and a half you can enjoy these and they keep for 5 days.

Tip: You can also cover these with dessicated coconut as an alternative to pistachios.
