Chocolate burfi recipe – Easy indian sweet recipes

             I had made this burfi last Diwali. I love to share small boxes of home made sweets with my friends during any occasions.  I had made some 3-4 varieties of sweets and shared it with a couple of friends. Most of my friends loved the sweets and especially I got good reviews about this particular sweet. I was not really satisfied with the pictures and also had not taken the pictures of the making. But I decided to post it anyway because many Indian festivals are approaching soon and you can try making this easy sweet for the upcoming occasions. And for the step by step pictures, you can always refer my maida burfi recipe post. I had made maida burfi , a couple of days before Diwali especially for the blog. But for Diwali, I decided to make a chocolate one because kids love anything chocolate rather than plain burfi. Atleast my kids did.
