Sal mubarak (Happy New Year)! Barfi is a traditional Hindu dessert (mithai) made from powdered milk, but these delicious treats are made from ground almonds instead. It wouldn’t feel festive without lots of sweet food…so enjoy!


Preparation time: 3 hours (including cooling time)


Ingredients (Serves 6 pieces):

  • 1 1/2 tbsp Lucy Bee Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
  • 200g ground Almonds
  • 2 1/2 tbsp Honey
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 35g Organic Milq Chocolate

Method:

  1. Add the coconut oil, almonds, honey and water to a sauce pan and heat until the mixture becomes thick and more moldable
  2. Lay cling film inside a small container (around 10cmx5cm) and lightly oil the cling film
  3. Place in the container lined with cling film and spread into a layer 1inch in height
  4. Place in the freezer for approx. 2 hours or until firm enough that it cannot be dented with a finger
  5. Melt the chocolate in a microwave in 20 second increments until the chocolate is a smooth liquid
  6. Cut the barfi into 6 pieces, or smaller if you prefer
  7. Pour the chocolate over the top surface of the barfi and run a knife in-between the pieces cut in step 6 (this prevents the chocolate cracking when you pick the barfi up)
  8. Place in the freezer for another one hour until the chocolate is hardened
  9. Turn the barfi out onto a plate and peel the cling film away from the bottom
  10. Cut the barfi along the edges originally made in step 6 (the marks will be clear on the underside of the barfi)
  11. Turn them over so they are chocolate side up
  12. Enjoy my Little Peas!
